3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Vintage 2/21/2002... Malty caramel, dried fruit (apricot), leather, aged floral/earthy hops; amber orange color, airy beige head; nice combination of sugary maltiness (dates, caramel) and a nice aged hoppiness (dried citrus peel, earthy, slightly herbal), mild tobacco and leather, moderate sweetness; medium body, smooth, still a good level of carbonation, a bit slick on the tongue; the label indicated that this would only be good for 2 years from the brew date, but I would say that itís holding up quite nicely for being over 13.5 years old and itís become more of a light barleywine.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one was a gusher. Hazy amber with huge head due to the overcarbonation. Aromas of flowers, peaches and mangoes with some bready malt. The taste has apricot, pine, a little grass, lemon and fresh bread. Hop bitterness is fairly smooth. Light bodied and drinkable. Once over the gushing, this was quite good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange color with big white head. Dry bready malt aroma paired with a nice citrus fruits hopping, hints of some sweeter exotic fruits. Taste is fruity-sweet at first, then the bready malt body is present and a dry earthy-bitter finish. Very soft foamy mouthfeel. An IPA that still has the old world hop profile present, but it fits together.
