From South Sound tasting notes:

Poured a very dark amber with a small tannish head. Despite being several years old, this still had a pretty big pine/grapefruit hop aroma mixed with some toffee.

Moderate carbonation and a creamy, not-too-heavy mouthfeel. Plenty of grapefruit up front mixed with biscuity toffee, slight roast, and a lingering pine finish.

Never had it fresh, but this was drinking pretty darn well even after a few years.

22oz bottle into a pint glass

brewed in june, 2009. DO NOT CELLAR, ENJOY IN 2009 written on bottle

pours a gilded bronze with a rising 2 finger head.

you can smell this when it pours and it smells ridiculous
floral and earthy notes with some hops

hops, sweet taste that turns kinda bitter followed by a toasty malt and chocolate.

kinda thick and flavor thats left goes fast

this beer would have been great in 09. its seen better days, but still not shabby
