3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Keir- thanks again! Pours a semi-cloudy amber-red color with a small off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, butterscotch, wheat, wood chips, and spice. Flavor of sweet and bready malts, toffee, wheat, sugary syrup, cereal, wood, spice, and warming alcohol. Sweet, malty, and wheaty. Medium-bodied, with a good amount of carbonation for the year (2008), though the hops have faded. Boozy finish. Interesting evolution, as this one is drinking more like a wheat wine now than a double IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Found muddled notes from a stop @ Humpys in Anchorage a month or so ago...pour deep amber/brown with a fluffy thin head. Nose was surpisingly caramel and tobacco, with the background bitterness of what was to come. Flavor is bordering on insane levels of piney/woody hops. Sticky (as one would expect) mouthfeel. Just light notes of the caramel from the nose, but they’re pretty much clobbered by the bitterness here. Good, but one is more than enough and pretty much toasted me on anything else.
