This beer is technically past its prime, but I saw it on the shelf and knew I needed to grab one while I could.
A: It's a beautiful beer. Pours a bright tangerine color. Pretty clear, maybe a little chill haze. Two fingers of head that slowly dissipates. Awesome lacing on the glass.
S: For an old bottle the hops are still very present in the aroma. Powerful citrus and pine. There's almost a hoppy sweetness in the nose.
T: Yep, awesome beer. It lives up to the hype for me. Strong hop characteristics of pine, citrus, and floral notes. Slightly resinous. There's actually a very slight sourness to it like a strong belgian pale. Perhaps that's from the age.
MF: There's a great malt character that keeps this beer pretty balanced for all the hoppyness it provides. Very carbonated, again almost like a belgian strong ale. The alcohol is very present, slightly warming.
O: An awesome beer. I wish there were more than one of these at the bottle shop. Great balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. I think I would describe this as straight up hop juice.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (Enjoy by 6/21/14)

A: Hazy copper-tinged straw body with ok lacing and a slight residual head. Good level of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Great head on this that is thick and foamy (one finger).

S: Decent hop level for the age on this. Slight fruitiness that is more floral than piney.

T: Slight hop flavor to this, but I know this beer is past its prime (even though they give it a year due to the bottle conditioning). Decent enough for the age, and quite piney. Even a bit of a spice on the end. Easy drinking and not super bitter.

M: Good level of carbonation, that is subtle and soft. Not crisp or harsh at all.

O: I had to get this before it was gone from shelves, but it is definitely past its prime. They shouldn't give this a year shelf-life.
