2007 release, poured from 22 oz bottle with a long, nonsensical diatribe imprinted on the back that just begs for analysis after you've had a few...
Pours a ruby-caramel color with medium head, good retention, and some noticible viscocity. Aroma displays thick, chewy malt sweetness, a matching fruity undertone, and a touch of hops and alcohol. Flavor has nice depth, dimension, and balance; with malt sweetness, hop bitterness, and alcohol intermingling nicely. Coats the tongue with a tangy, fruity, hop and malt concotion that begs for more as it fades.
Overall, this beer stradles the line between an old ale and barley wine, though it has that citrusy hop essence that defines it as an all-American version of either. Very nice beer, recommended.
