Thanks goes out to dsgolovin for this extra from a recent trade.

I had this back in 07 in a bottle from a growler. This time alot fresher and the real bottle.

500ml
Bottled On:05/04/12

Poured into a Squatters real pint glass a very nice slightly hazy golden orange/yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a one-finger plus thick creamy head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is very nice, lots of hops, grapefruit, pines, with a nice touch of malts. The taste is AWESOME!, hoppy, sweet, tons of grapefruit, piney, and slightly malty. Medium body, with a nice chewy feel, slightly bitter/dry. Overall this is one fine brew, I do believe after reading my other review, this one does kick it's ass, this is what I was expecting after all the hype back then and now. This one is going down pretty fast. Thanks David!
