3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Churchills. Bright orange with lacy white head. Nose is Citrus and grass with shades of wheat and sweet malts. Flavor is slick wheat flavors with a sweetbread malt presence, moderate citrus and grassy hop flavor, finishes sweet. Medium body, slick texture, moderate carbonation. This wheat ale is holding up nicely and there is strong balance here, the malts are coming out with age and the hops provide a subtle kick.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the Graduate in Davis, CA. Pours opaque honey amber with an off-white head. Smooth fruity aroma. Full bodied with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is lighter stone fruit and something like honey toffee. There is lurking bitter. A very different, exotic flavor. Finishes towards light toffee. Amazing brew. Too drinkable by far.

Bottle shared by bruce at SL... For being five years old this beer kicked ass.... Orange in color, good head. Nice aroma of some hops and malts. Taste is a nice well balalced, DIPA imo.... For being five years old....it still had a "bite" to it. Hoppy but not sugary or malty. Nice carbonation level. Overall: Impressed how well this held up over the years. Thanks bruce

(Sample Date: 7/18/2009 Source:Other) Malty with a quite fruity peach pear and floral aroma. Slightly cloudy honey golden with small white head. Rich sugary maltiness with a distinct woodiness in flavor. Finish is mostly dry with hefty residual bitterness.

10th June 2008. Cloudy amber gold beer. Plenty of hops but offset by a barleywine amount of malt. When it was straight from the fridge actually thought it was a barleywine. Very drinkable.

Growler from Stone. Slighty hazy light gold in color with a white head. Sweet aromas of lemon, honey. Rich and medium full bodied. Very smooth in your mouth. A bit yeasty and malty with a solid amount of hops which I am sure have faded by now. Tasty balanced finish a bit on the sweeter side. Wish there was more of this.
