I think this is my favorite beer of all time. I'm not sure if it's because it's released only once a year, or if it's because it really is so good. I also can't tell if I'd get sick of it if I was able to have it all the time, or if part of it's appeal is because of it's limit.
Anyway, it poured well - typical IPA color with a small, half-inch head. Smell is out of this world! It smells like the freshest, hoppiest juice I have ever experienced. This is what I imagine raw hops would taste like if you pressed them and drank them. And if I thought the smell was outstanding, the taste is even more ridiculous! So fresh and delicious! It takes a minute to get used to as the taste can be overwhelming at first, which is probably a good thing at 10% ABV. Totally worth $18 (now $26!) a 6-pack, and I can't wait until it comes out again.
