3.08/5 rDev -24.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a cloudy light golden color; small head, very little lacing
S: Sweet malts with some slight floral hops
T: Very very sweet malts dominate the flavor with a little bit of hop bitterness and boozy sharpness at the end.
M: Medium thickness, a little bit sharp on the tongue
O: This is the second time I've tried this beer, and both times (2 year old batch and 6 month old batch) have had almost no hop presence whatsoever. If this is what they consider their holy grail for hopheads, then they have seriously failed. It says it ages well, but I wouldn't recommend drinking one past 4 months old unless you wanna drink straight malt syrup, which is what it tasted like to me both times. Very disappointing, as I was expecting a ridiculously hoppy brew to satiate my hop withdrawals, but this has failed to deliver both as a fresh bottle and as an aged one.

Where do I start, this beer completely took me by surprise. Its bold but you can tell that just by reading the outside label. Pouring it and taking in it's aromas, my taste buds started salivating immediately. It has a very potent citrus and pine scent with a very enveloping tone of vanilla and herbs giving it a sturdy weight. The actual taste itself lives up to it's aroma completely. It is very rich with a powerful hop flavor! I picked up on some of the finer notes of vanilla, spice, raisin, and a slight mineral flavor all wrapped up in tangy notes of orange and pine. I love this beer. It is truly complex and makes you think about what your drinking. In my opinion, enjoy this one like a fine scotch or bourbon. Just a few sips and I got a head buzz from all those hops! warm it up a little in your glass and your golden. I plan on buying a couple more bottles and letting them age.
