2009 vintage
Oh no, vintage with screw cap

Big creamy head, nice lacing, very hazy reddish orange color

Nose aged malt, plenty of oxidation, little yeasty, sweet candy malt, chewy nougat

Taste little bitter herbal grassy hop, more oxidation, sweet candy malt, toffee syrup, sticky, little metallic too

Mouth sticky syrupy, decent carb

Overall eh, as expected

On draft at the 2015 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. Served in a plastic glass (sadly). Color is a somewhat cloudy amber-orange with a fleeting head. Unsure of lacing due to plastic cup. The smell is dominated by strong citrus hops. The taste is very hop forward and the finish a nice combination of malt and citrus. Excellent carbonation level. Paired very well with somewhat spicy shrimp. Absolutely no hint of the 7.5% ABV. This is a nice import that reminds me of a mild IPA.

From bottle, The estery, fruity flavours and hop aromas leap out of the glass.a very good beer if you can get it it's a must try. Could only have a couple of these.
