3.65/5 rDev -13.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Sampling a 2005 winter release at room temp poured into a tulip glass.
The brew pours a bright clear chestnut color with a huge fluffy beige head of 3cm that fades slowly to a 1 cm lingering layer of foam.
Aroma is hop dominant with pine and grapefruit and some grassy notes.
Not much malt counter balance.
First sip reveals a sticky body with very fine rolling carbonation.
Flavor is sweet for a second with a bit of caramel but rolls quickly to all hops with pine sap and grapefruit rind busting forth.
This is a hop head brew and is an easy drinker with no hint of ABV.
A decent brew but like I said hop lovers rejoice others, not so much.

4.5/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Golden tan, mellow yellow with a killer 3 inch thick, foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.
Smell - Nice upfront citric, piney, grapefruit hops. Orange, some lemon, mild malt backbone. Sweet added sugars, along with some spices like coriander, lemon peel.
Taste - Right on par with aroma, big amounts of citric fruits featuring pine, grapefruit and orange. A bitter kick with some minor spices add a little zest behind tangerine and mango. A nice sugary note along with a caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Sweet tropical fruits along with some sugars coat the tongue. Palate gets more citric fruits, along with the caramel backbone. Aftertaste is minor bitter, tropical fruity.
Overall - Awesome. This should be a regular release. Really flavorful, nice amounts of hops and sweet sugars to create a nice smooth drink. Alcohol is hidden well and just adds to making this really pleasurable to drink.
