Opened this Nov 2, 08 after 'cellaring' in my fridge for about 7 months.
A - dark amber, rather opaque and sexy. finger worth of froth that hung around for a while. not so much with the lacing though...
S - ooo. biscuty? floral...obviously from insane amount of hops. can sense the layers. a bit piney. others that i cant pinpoint
T - an verbal, oh wow. you can taste the complexities fly through your mouth. malt up front as usual and looong finish of bitter fruity hops. i did notice on the first couple of sips that there were tastes that i do not pick up later on...prob from the hops taking over a bunch. so yes, very long hop linger, but with flavor. i am lacking words to describe so i appologize
M - buttery and fills the mouth well. you know you're drinking a beer. very nice
D - well. debatable. it's very strong 9.2, but that isnt noticable so much on the pallete. the pure overwhelming hops may make this hard to get past 2 unless you're already numb from drinking these on a regular basis :-P
note: as this was cellared for a while and there is no freshness date i would be interested in trying it fresh and with a longer cellar. although after talking with davecooks he prefers all ipa's very very fresh as to get the most hop flavor. different convo all together
drink it if you see it.
