Review from notes taken on 9/8/10.

Big thanks to Kegatron for giving me this bottle. I really appreciate it Heath! Opened and shared with 2 friends who are big ipa fans.

Poured into a pint, this brew appears a clear orange color with a finger of yellowish stained foam. The head receeds slowly leaving an abundant amount of lace all over the glassware.

The nose is full assault of sweetness. It smells rich like candied oranges and a heavy scent of caramel sugars that has a hint of vanilla about it as well.

The taste is strikingly sweet. The first thing that comes to mind is unfermented wort. This taste is more in line with what I was expect from an overly sweet aged barleywine or old ale. Really wasn't expecting this taste. A minor indication of alcohol and hop flavoring and bitterness exists but this brew is so over bearingly sweet that it dominates all the other characteristics of the brew. This brew leaves a lasting cling of sweetness inside the mouth. As it warms, it becomes quite cloying with more alcohol becoming evident and some hops start to show a bit of an herbal touch. The sweetness of this brew really distracts and degrades the experience. I prefer my ipas to have some nice residual sugar flavor in them but this one is out of control, one sided and not balanced.

It is a full bodied brew with a moderate level of carbonation. I am glad I got a chance to try this but am equally happy I was not trying to take down an entire 750ml myself.

Reviewed from notes. Had out of a firkin at CCB tasting room. Poured into a snifter glass.

A: Deep caramel in color, translucent, with a one-finger khaki head and no visible carbonation.

S: Sweet malts, a bit of pine & citrus hops, and boozy. Some roasted caramel.

T: Follows the nose very closely. The hoppiness is still trying to hold on but is clearly losing the battle. Still a little alcohol heat but it does seem tamed. Overall a nice sweetness here.

M: Medium body, smooth & silky mouthfeel. Boozy but the alcohol heat doesn't overwhelm. Minimal carbonation sensation, likely due in part to the firkin serving.

O: Wow, this was very good, and I'm glad I had the chance to try it! Guess they had this one aging for the last couple years. I never had the opportunity to try it fresh, but it sure was tasty as is!

Pours a beautiful but thin golden red color – really beautiful. A small white head tops the beer and quickly recedes. Smells of deep citrus hops so very fruity. First sip has shown some age but this one was kept in my fridge since purchase. The hops have so faded but in its place a pleasant maltiness shines thru to the point of being both chewy and doughy. Super candy sweet notes are upfront and in your face without the hops to balance it. Plenty of toffee too. I keep thinking how nice it would be to have this one fresh and on cedar. I had this one fresh and enjoyed it more than the aged version. Pretty tough to drink but I’ll manage.
