Bottle courtesy of 67couple, 12oz'er poured into a tulip. Thanks again Jon, BBD of November 15th, 2010.
Appears a rusty golden brown, relatively translucent with only about a finger or so of head even with some aggression on my part. Thin layer of head, sticky lace. Aroma is very nice, well rounded out with a ton of different citrus notes, lots of pineapple, lemon zest, a bit of grapefruit initially, some peach and as always, yer usual rich, and sweet caramel malt. Nice stuff, even for something not as fresh as it probably should be. Taste is quite bitter up front, and the hops are well known. More citrus here, and at points I want to think the bitterness borders on something potentially enamel ripping when fresh (for an IPA at least). Similar hop profile to what I've noticed in a variety of Victory beers (at least in Prima Pils and Hop Wallop at this point). Long bitter and drying finish. Good drinkability as I can't detect the alcohol, but the bitterness of this would likely prevent from several in succession.
