Sammy (9064) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2009
A very decent and drinkable IPA, though somewhat overated. Cellared for several months though still in fine shape. A real super-foamer, I needed three tall glasses, as the foram kept coming. Decent average golden glow yellow,with lots of white foam of course. Soft mouthfeel, easy drinking and reasonable bitterness.

Big thanks to fly for this one. The pour is turbid deep copper with a splotchy off-white head and great sheets of sticky lace. The aroma is wonderful; huge piney sappy hops coupled with earthy caramel malt and tropical fruit...the aroma is like I’d imagine if one would throw a spruce tree in a blender with mango, tangerine, pineapple caramel malt, Wheaties, and peat moss. Just an amazing, intense, complex aroma that I smelled for quite a while. The flavor is wonderful also, with a very earthy caramel malt up front, giving way to the huge piney hops and tropical fruit, all balanced very well and complementing very well. My only complaint, and it is a minor one, is that perhaps a bit more malt would have pushed this one into perfecto robusto territory. As it stands, it’s one of my highlights for 2007. I see this one as a Stone 10th clone with better balance, slightly better flavor, and slightly better mingling of flavors. Outstanding!
