Enjoy by: 09-03-12. Uh oh, its a week past that. 97 days old!

A - Dark brown almost red body with a frothy one finger light tan head. Decent lacing and retention.

S - Piney and citrusy hops with a large sweetened caramel malt backbone. Basic but inviting.

T - Again, a nice balance of citrus and pine hops with a dominant bready caramel malt backbone. Great balance of flavors and quite drinkable. Mouth feel is medium bodied, almost creamy, with great carbonation.

O - Not groundbreaking. All the marketing (You're not worthy!) aside, its somewhat of a staple to the craft beer world. Kind of a stepping stone past SNPA and Boston Lager. Its a damn tasty hopped up beer with a great malt backbone and it doesn't have to be super fresh to be enjoyed either. I've always been a fan of this beer and will continue to pick up a bomber from time to time.

Drank from a pint glass poured from on tap at Prarie Moon.

A: Deep red, brownish. Hazy but very bubbly. Really an incredible head, and significant, almost artistic lacing.

S: Very hoppy smelling, yet balanced with some amount of maltiness. Light booze is clearly evident on the nose. This one should be a doozy.

T: Dominant flavours are roasted malt and toastiness. Contrary to the smell, hoppiness is more subdued, though still plays a prominant role. Has quite the nutty aftertaste.

M: Its a tad boozy, not suprisingly since it is 7.2 abv. Quite bubbly. Decent aftertaste

D: Too high abv to session. Don't finish your night with this beer. It'll knock you on your ass. Very interesting though, and I wish I could session it.
