Vintage 2006, Aged 8 months.
A: Translucent, glowing orange sunburst hue that's rather hazy, topped by about a finger of white head that takes its time sticking around, as well as sticking to the sides of the glass.
S: Mellow herbal and somewhat grassy hop aroma, some spiciness evident. There's also a sweetness that accompanies the hop presence, though it's subtle and underneath.
T: Reflects the nose quite well. A pale malt introduction provides the basis for the varied hop profile, that is mostly grassy and spicy, but subdued. There is a brief hint of sweetness that waxes and wanes during the middle, washing into a slightly dry finish where the hop residue fades perfectly.
M: Carbonation is at an optimal level, giving some body and creaminess to the beer's texture on the palate. Slight bit of hop oil on the tongue, but not an overwhelming amount at all.
D: While being drinkable as all hell, this beer is not quite as good as I recall it being. I've had it fresh, and aged for a year or just over, but not really anywhere in between. Still, a great offering from Troegs, I just may need to wait a while longer before cracking the others open.

Bought this one in Baltimore on advice of my son. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is more malty than expected. Biscuity, sweet and some pine notes. Taste is more bitter than the nose, moderate to heavily bitter. The caramel sweetness and biscuits make a nice backbone to the pine, resin hoppy bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. A solid effort for a hoppy IPA.
