Drank one that was about a year old...not sure how the age affected the taste because i've never had this beer before.

a: cloudy, orange coloring w/ light carbonation. not much of a head developed and disappeared quickly
s: sweet apricot aroma, piney hop aroma. possibly a little spice
t: sweet taste that is quickly countered by the bittering hops. hop flavor not overpowering but balances the sweetness very well. i'm an ipa fan so i generally enjoy hops and this beer has it
m: soft without much carbonation
o: good balanced beer. it's borderline too sweet for me, but they loaded it up on hops to save the day! i will be drinking this beer again!

2009 vintage.

Poured cold to a heady topper stemless a deep, dark, murky copper, with a super thin, quickly dissipating tan head that leaves a thin rim on the surface of the beer.

Aroma of dark, buttery sugars and dark cherries.

Big bodied, little carbonation, smooth-ish, medium heat, sweet.

Dark sugars, sticky sweet, muted flavors. This one may be past it's sweet spot.
