The myth the legend, thanks to my dad for hauling this beast out from California for me. Bottled 11/17 FRESH.
A- Looks like a Double, looks fantastic. Nice white head, laces beautifully. Awesome golden hay color with just a tinge of orange. Hazy.
S- Awesome fragrance, dense hops, pot, pine, pepper. Fresh grass and awesome citrus.
T- This is it. Starts mild with hints of grapefruit and moves into intense fresh hop flavor, pine, slams you with the bitter and then off to a chewy finish with a pucker. For a hophead this thing is just a blast from start to finish. Awesome aftertaste.
M- Crisp and clean, taste is just overwhelming, nice mouthfeel really adds to it, perfect carbonation keeps it on the tongue just long enough to taste it all.
O- In my opinion this thing lives up to the hype. It's a great beer. Something I would love to be drinking everyday. Just brings me back home to Northern California. Legend.
