4.54/5 rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Served in a snifter glass.
Appearance: A deep deep golden color with a slight amber tint to it. The body itself is very transparent. The bubbles are light but they are definitely there. Head comes off easy, off-white maybe 1/3" with a hard pour.
Smell: Light citrus mostly grapefruit, you take a sniff its ok...I want you to take another sniff it just hits you like oh my god. The scent it slightly light but its strong off the each whiff. A wet hopped scent which is incredibly pleasant.
Taste: Strong and bitter first words coming out my mouth, this brew is already on top of the one of the best period. With strong, floral feel and the grapefruit skin its feels like biting into a raw piece of grapefruit. it has that bitter sweet that has a sound that is close to perfect.
Mouth: With a medium carbonation, and it's smoothness you honestly have yourself a winner.
Overall: I am beyond impressed what quality that is presented to you. With quality like this that screams flavor, taste and body alone you have yourself a quality brew. I will be at the Superstar Beverage next week and will gladly pour myself another with no argument as long as it is available. Don't hesitate and just drink, Salud!

I paid 9.99 for this bottle and it was born 9/5/13 2 days before my 31st birthday. I found it in Ohio still on the shelves, and knew I missed it the first time around. However, I still hadn't had this beer from Bear Republic. If it's so gone because of the aged hop profile I'm not going to knock it, but I have to try it. This should have been gone the first week it was out!!!
It appears a clouded apricot golden glowing orange hue with an off white head forms fine bubbled carbonation, impressive look to say the least.
However, the aromatics are consumed with aged hops and a mild citrus note, dank marijuana and the whole nine.
Gladly, the flavor is amazing the hops being aged don't damper my experience at all, big malts, big alcohol, and big hop flavor come across. Earthy, citric grapefruit peel, candied sugar notes with all of those expressive hops.
Mouthfeel isn't cloying at all, clean excessive hop bursts add a drying quality to the profile. Drinks way to easy on the palate, clean aggressive and still going down great.
Overall, I hope to God that I never find this fresh, because I might not be able to handle it...it may blow my mind, because this is super fucking good on the palate.
