3.83/5 rDev +1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Date: 16 April 2011
Glass: 26fl oz snifter
Type: 750ml, corked and caged
Bottled: 19 July 2010
Poured gently, producing a frothy 'permanent' 2-finger dark beige head, with a decent film head once the head is drunk, deep slightly runny lacing, clear crimson color.
Admittedly, this is a bit old for a 2XIPA, but I'll rate fairly. Aroma smells like a decently hopped barleywine on a backbone of sweet pale malts. Slight floral character is present, but certainly not in taste...
Taste is surprisingly packed with bitter hops, although any pine/citrus/floral character is not present, but the sweet malts still make this an extremely drinkable beer to sip.
Mouthfeel is bitter yet malty sweet on the palate, like a refined barleywine. Still very good, but would love to try this fresh.

4.13/5 rDev +9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Served in a snifter. Vintage bottle, dated 05/22/13.
Appearance: A slight hazy amber body, It's hazy because of the pour which was pretty rough. Head almost two finger's length with your usual white color. Looks beautiful.
Smell:Bland citrus and yeast scent that is more potent as the brew warms up. Good but not something to roll head over heels for.
Taste: Complex and bitter. Grapefruit feel, a little sour that might feel a touch sweet. This might also be because of the age of the beer. Regardless very good.
Mouth: Medium to full bodied after-taste and very sticking.
Overall: Very good brew, wish I could bought more of these when I had the chance. If you see it and you love IPAs I can promise it will not disappoint you. Salud!
