Five year old Eight pours with a bright orange coloring and a sizeable foam cap.
This bottle was stored properly but it smells like plastic. Lots of phenolic and alcohol make it very off-putting.
The phenolic quality holds in the taste for the beginning but subsides quickly to give a nice fruity orange, tangerines and nectarines flavor.
The feel is sprite and bubbly but smooth and full.
Fresh this may be a fantastic rendition of a Belgian IPA but time seems to have been hard on this one.
