Smelly sweaty hop aroma. It has a lean body, with good malt flavor, and still some hop resins and fruits; old but enjoyable.

Bottle - Vintage - Boozy caramel and barley wine like. Floating stuff in orange with a nice white head. Light caramel and a woody. Definitely past due but still not too bad.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, thanks Todd! Resiny pine, honey, grass, really pleasant despite the age. Cloudy yellow, low head. Minerally dusty base, light hay, plenty off grass and pine to balance. A bit of autolysis by now, but not severe. Dry body, slightly too light at this point, pleasant sparkly mouthfeel. Dry citric finish. Nice, must have been spectacular fresh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared by CapFlu. Pours warm orange with a slight haze and white lacing. Smells past its prime, but not bad. Has a slight skunkweed herbal aroma with citrus pith, Grand Marnier, and honey. Soft, fairly thick palate. Nice bitterness but does not have as much complexity as the aromas let on. Earthy flavors include burnt mushrooms as well as grass.

Hazy golden-amber. Whispy head. Honeyish and lightly floral with fresh, bready malts. Fairly light, with some honey malt on the palate. Dry, hoppy finish. Nice brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very yellow, rising carbonation bubbles. Whote foamy head. Some consider it a DIPA. Average mouthfeel. Sweet malts drying finish. Orange in taste, 60 plus IPA I think.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty orangey color ale with a small foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops are dominant. Taste is also dominated by loads of green hops with a grassy feels and some medium citrus notes. Malt is bit shy for the style IMO. Body was quite full with average carbonation and no signs of the alcohol. A notch below some of the best West Coast IIPA but still very enjoyable nonetheless.
