    Hmm, well I bought it about two months ago. Thought it was pretty malt-heavy but still very good. So I guess it was at least 4 months old. Damn.... Looks like I need to get my hands on some fresh DS!

    I can not believe Nugget Nectar has not landed at my local store. Mark it down that this is probably the one seasonal release I truly wait for.

    OH AND CHEERS! :D

    I live where it's made. I can send you a fresh bottle if you want?? The unfiltered 750ml bottle is best!

    Not yet. Trying to get together with another BA buddy of mine and share. It does stare at me everything time I open the fridge so I may have to crush it all by myself.

    I was able to get one bottle from my beer guru at WF this past weekend.
    It's my first time with this beer and I am simply blown away!
    I have been very fortunate to have scored quite a bit of fresh HT lately and I have been enjoying it on a regular basis.
    The first thing that struck me on this beauty is the insane grapefruit flavors you get with Heady.
    No it does not have that incredible nose of HT but if a friend asks me for a west coast flavor substitute this is a pretty damn good substitute. But it stands on its own merits as well, a perfect west coast DIPA that I hope everyone gets to try .

    Cheers.....

    I got it as close to 50/50 as I could. Smell is sweet chocolate with faint coffee. Taste is smooth chocolate and more coffee with the classic roasty finish of FIS...i really like it

    A hoppy Belgian style that hides the high ABV (9.2%) very well.

    And again with the Jinx Proof. I don't know why I was craving a great lager so badly, but this is just perfect!

    After having Hopslam and Surly Abrasive earlier, I have moved on to Founders Breakfast Stout.
