Had this on 2011-01-27 in Redondo Beach, CA. It was bottled 15 days ago. Had again in Torrance , CA on 2011-03-30 from a bottle that is 13 days old.
A - Almost clear gold with a slight haze with a short, white head and good lacing.
S - Strong hop floral, tropical fruit, citrus and a bit of pine that filsl the area in front of me.
T - Complex tastes that are heavily floral with grapefruit/orange peel/tangerine and tropical fruit flavors blended with an oily hops/light-pine resin, biscuit/chocolate malt, warming alcohol, and plenty of well-balanced and significant clinging-bitterness and malt taste in the finish. Super.
M - Resinous, a little prickly yet creamy and smooth with medium body and light-medium carbonation. It also manages to be crisp and refreshing and exceedingly well-balanced.
D - Fabulous. Glad to be visiting the LA area where it is available. Wish I could have this every day. Tastes as good in the bottle as when I've had it on draft. The only difference is tonight for some reason I'm getting a little more biscuit/chocolate malt flavor than I remember on draft. I'm diggin' it though.
