I normally won't review from memory but I had this last night and it was pretty memorable so here goes. It poured a very thick & light gold in color, with very little carbonation. Aroma was very sweet , along with taste, which was heavy on the apricots. Suprisingly the alcohol was masked well. It seems like Dogfish head can mask 20% beers well but fail to mask a 9% beer's alcohol...weird. Anyway, the hops really did'nt make much of an impact until after the beer went down, surfacing after the sweetness had receded in the aftertaste.A very nice mega-hoppy finish. I really enjoyed this beer and would try it again, not just as a novelty but because it was actually good.

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.
