Thanks to JJFoodie and and jstuffings, two terrific Texans who sent me one of these bad boys. One for now, and one for later!
A: Translucent orangish yellow body with small bubbles coming to the surface at random places (meaning no streams). Small, pure white head that sticks around for 10 or 15 seconds, which was more than I thought it would.
S: Hops dominate, with strawberries, papaya, bubble gum, and sweet grass being the most prevalent flavors to my olfactory senses.
T: Starts off with the sweet, fruity hop notes, then goes into a more herbal, bitter flavor in the middle, with some phenols rearing their heads as well. The bitterness recedes towards the end, with some of the fruit coming back, not as sweet, perhaps with even a touch of sourness. The aftertaste is a mild to medium bitterness which lasts for half a minute or so when allowed to linger.
M: Carbonation is fairly strong at the start, but gives away to a creamy, fairly full feel.
D: Pretty good for this style and strength.
This isn't one of my favorite styles, but I thought it was well-balanced and enjoyed it. As a malt maven, I imagine I will find it even more tasty with a few years of aging on it.

From a 12 ounce bottle into a teku. March 2013 edition.
A- Orange and copper colored body. Exceptionally persistent head that remains even after sipping. Lace is sticky, abundant and scattered. Carbonation bubbles stick to the glass plainly visible in the body. Sexy.
S- Citrusy, sweet, honey-like. Thick sweet malt flavor. Caramel and toffee abound. A very pungent and robust flavor.
T- Continues very citrusy. Caramel, toffee and sweet malt too. The nose and taste are very consistent.
M- I love how creamy this drinks. Quite smooth and mellow. The age must have done this well, because there's zero hint of alcohol. No burn whatsoever. It's sweet as I've mentioned, with only a slight bitterness from whatever citrusy hops it started with.
This beer probably isn't getting the props it deserves. It's delicious. I can't speak to this beer flesh, but a year and four months have aged it well.
