Had two bottles shipped to CT for me by a friend.
BA says that "All "5's" should be rare (ie. cannot improve anymore). Just keep that in mind." Well, I kept that in mind...and I can't think of a better beer for me right now.
Served at 35-40 degrees F into a shaker glass. Pours a beautiful rust brown color with a fluffy, light, off-white head that lasts the whole glass.
Nose - bready malt with a hint of almond extract and a layer of citrus and pine.
Taste - Biscuit and caramel with a perfect pine hop backbone. The finish is citrus and a sweet malty hit that lingers for a few seconds and makes me want another sip. Neither side, the malts or the hops, overpowers the other.
Maybe I love it because I can't get it around here. Maybe it's just where my pallette is right now. Either way, I can't think of how it could be any better.
If anyone knows of something that's available in CT that comes close to Mirror Pond, let me know!
