Tasted 8/28/14. Bottle was about 8 years old. Surprisingly no signs of oxidation at all. Poured a murky brownish gold color. It drank pretty much like a barleywine. Again, no oxidation could be detected in this bottle. The beer had nice prune and fig notes with a malty backbone and surprising bitterness that's still hanging on from the hops. Really interesting to try such an old IPA.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass some 8 years after this was bottled...

A pretty good, semi-flat barleywine essentially.

I was nervous - I've never had such an old IPA. I loved it - it reminds me of beers like Double Dancer, but with less carbonation.

The smell was great, with some nice malt and hop aroma.

Color was extremely cloudy and muddy - a reddish orange.

For such an old beer, this held up amazingly well.

08/22/12 On tap. Part of a Stone's flight. I was looking to re-appraise my appreciation (or lack thereof) for Stone's stuff. This was a bitter lightweight compared to the 16th Anniversary. Unfortunately all the hop jiggery-pokery went to waste on this un-hoppy guy. Better than most, but not enough for me to change horses.
