This review is for the 2009 version of this seasonal beer. I'm not going to belabor my explination of each section. I'm going to give a very arms length review...feelings from the heart.
Appearance: Ok...this brew poured very well. The head was full. Lacings were plentiful. This just LOOKS like a great brew.
Smell: Aromatic hops jump out. Maybe a little malt too. Thi smells alot like an IPA. Aroma was full but not overpowering.
Taste: Very hop heavy. Some pine creeps out. Again...thi is a brew with a strong presence. The flavor will be fine for sophisticated drinkers, but for newbies or women, this might be a little strong.
Mouthfeel: This is a little heavy on the palate, but for an IPS'ish brew, its nottoo bad. The hop bitternes is quite pleasant. Good job.
Drinkability: I downed three before I know what had happened. That's a good sign!
Serving type: bottle
