thanks to Chi81 for this extra. batch 10093, which was brewed in January 2011, so definitely past its freshness, but I heard this might still be tasty. poured into my stone snifter
a - concentrated urine yellow with a finger head that retains and leaves some nice sticky lacing
s - definitely get the honey in there, and grapefruit, apple, and even some brown sugar. the hops are definitely past their freshness, so the hop aroma is mellow
t - definitely honey mixed with plenty of hops. i'm surprised at how well the hops stuck around, probably due to their extensive dry-hopping on this one. not overly bitter, but the honey does mellow it out and provide great balance
m - medium to full bodied, still good carbonation on this one
o - for almost a year-old hop bomb, this held its ground nicely. curious if this is a shadow of its former self or what. will definitely have to seek this out fresh, but even 10 months old this is delicious.
