best by 11-1-15. 22 oz bottle.

pours with plenty of carb. big time head and retention. color is good. still has a slight haze and an orange body. aroma has really calmed down with time. a little bit of oxidation, but really not that off-putting. however, hop aroma is highly diminished. still getting some of that booze as time hasn't eliminated all that yet. again, any hoppiness is virtually eliminated and this now drinks like a big belgian tripel with some time on it. finish is still very dry. getting a mild metallic flavor as well.

original review from 5-2-11. best before date not indicated.

A: maybe a slight haze on this orange body. good looking white head looks thick and has great retention. loads of carbonation can be seen as well.

S: a real breadiness from the yeast can be detected. similar to fresh baked banana bread. the citrus/earth is evident as well and plays nicely with the above described aromas.

T: this is a biggie. banana working with a nice black pepper spice. a little bit of alcohol (not entirely ridiculous considering the 9.2% nametag). a smooth vanilla. hop flavors are present as well, but are more of the earth variety.

M: pretty soft carbonation on this big body lets a lot of flavor shine through.

D: really cool beer. definitely closer to the tripel side than the IPA side, but nice showing by both aspects of the brew.
