Really excited about this beer, and found by chance at a local liquor store - the first time I had seen or heard of it. Pours a nice deep dark red with clingy thick white head. Some effervescing. Smell is somewhat mild, mostly apples and caramel and some citrus. Taste is actually a lot hoppier than I was expecting; lots of citrusy hops, pine, and oak up front with some brown sugar and vanilla. Lots of Bigfoot influence. Mouthfeel is very smooth, and not too heavy. Feels nowhere near 9+%. Carbonation is good. Overall very pleased... Not overly sweet, and very complex. Lots of good flavors to pull out. A great tribute to 30 years for one of my favorite breweries.
