Recovered my notes from my old computer. This is the 2009 version consumed on August 17, 2009.
The appearance an excellent deep gold with wonderful amber/red hues, like a dark peach or apricot. The head is quite luscious, sticky, and frothy with great lacing down the sides.
The nose is all spices and citrus, with a decently malting backing, from what can tell (it's a little cold). As it warm up, I'm getting a lot more or everything.
This beer drinks like a dream! It's got tons of different hop flavor, but primarily spices, citrus, and earth (probably from the freshness of the hops). The malt foundation is solid, and rounds this out nicely, consider the IBUs. The mouthfeel is just right here, almost perfect. I could drink these all day.
I really enjoyed this one, I wish I could have it fresh all year.
