look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

2008 purple wax

pours hazy dark amber orange with a 2 finger head that covers the glass with lacing

still smells of strong pine hops and powerful tropical fruits

taste is all forward citrus fruits and pine hops and sweet candy toffee carmel malts - i know i have desribed other beers this way but this one is amazing and is world class

mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied with plent of carbonation for the style - somehow it leaves your mouth coated with flavors but still light enough to want more and more

drinkability - i dare anyone to drink more then one bottle (i split this one with some peeps) but after one glass you want more

overall - i have had this beer at 2yr 1yr and fresh - all tastings are out of this world and look forward to sipping on my 07 next year at 3years
