From notes dated 02-21-15.

head is super creamy and builds to three fingers including a muffin top puff that rises above the rim of the glass and slightly over. Quickly turns rocky leaving swiss cheese like lace behind. Body is a classic orange amber tone. nose includes resin based hops with orange marmalade and strong back ground of malts. With first sip the hop profile is quite woodsy and laced with pine and citrus rind. The malts are very forward but I would attribute that to the year of aging this beer has had in my cellar. Ih has almost taken a turn towards barleywine status in terms of taste or style currently. Now this is not a bad thing but hops should be given a fresher chance and this is my fault so I definitely won't score poorly for that. The mouthfeel is thick with a hoppy, malt battle. Drinkability is quite nice fresh or with a little age. Let it be said that I am plenty aware that you should drink your IPA's as fresh as possible.
