22oz bomber shared with my neighbor (22oz of 10% beer is too much for me). Awesome! Nice hoppy aroma. Some phenolics at a low level. Is there a connection between brief exposure to high temperatures after bottling and phenolics. I know it can come from higher temperatures during normal fermentation. Medium bitterness. Perceived sweetness, but finishes dry. Easy to drink. Very good!

No date on bottle so no clue how fresh this is. On first pour there is quite a lot of hops in insuspended animation. Taste is interesting. A little soapy and a strong floral taste with some strong fresh onions. It’s a weird mix of profiles and not sure how I like it.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2016 Draft at Eulogy. Very hazy dark orange pour with frothy soapy beige foam that left thick bubbly lace. Thick cherry caramel malts spiked with a huge hop bite. Not what I was expecting. Mandarins. Sugar Babies. Red currants. Mojhy apples. Bamboo. Orange passionfruit. Alcoholic Duck Sauce. Fruity thick sugar sweetness, mild tartness, and strong bitterness. A huge flavorful challenge. NICE!

Bottle at home (6 fl. oz., probably not fresh). Pours a dark amber with a white head. Aroma is heavy malty, heavy hoppy, pine, caramel, herbal, hint of citrus, probably lost most of its fruitiness already. Taste is sweet malty, hoppy bitter, fruity, dry hoppy ending with a long hoppy aftertaste. Very nice, massive hops and malts, and probably even better when fresh.
