look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz bottle, DOB 03/13/14. Poured into a Libby globe porter glass.

Appearance: Golden amber with a definite haze to it (appears to be some chill haze). Nicely dense off-white head with lots of persistent lacing.

Smell: Mango, lemon, pine. Nicely hoppy in an aromatic way.

Taste: Nicely balance hops and sweet malt. Mango and citrus up front, then a sweet malt middle, followed by a pine finish. The malt sweetness has some bread-like quality to it, but there is also some caramelized flavor in there as well mixed in with the pine at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, a bit sticky underneath, and as I drink more, the hop oils begin to build up on my teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: A nice showcase of a single hop and a single malt. I rather enjoyed this beer and I wonder if it would have been even better had I bought it a few months ago when first released. The flavors have held up nicely with time; the higher ABV probably helps with that. Not massively bitter - very drinkable and I think I'd be in trouble if I had another as the alcohol is well hidden. Good beer!

Drinking from an aged keg of this, and it's surprisingly good when poured in a wide glass. I'd call it a baby barleywine. All the hops are gone, but what's left is very good.
