puzzl (3260) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 Huge, grapefruit aroma, very citrusy, not much else, though assertive and yummy. Pours with a tiny little fizzy head (not as creamy as the label makes you think), dark brown. Taste has lots of sweet caramelly malts with a delicious hop kick... not very bitter but still hoppy. Alcohol is not well hidden at all, though palate is still creamy goodness.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2007 Thanks Duane. This was aved for my big 1000. Thick ruby color, very thick pour, small beige head. Aroma of caramel, sticky citrus grapefruit pine. Taste was very good. Caramel and roasted malts under some hops. Fruit mixed in. Hops through and through. Excellent ! I want more.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2007 3 Jul 2007. 22 ounce bottle. 2005 vintage.
I really had a pretty big Three Floyds bias back in the day. This beer is damn hot. Lots of alcohol. The the great hop character is still there. Still a nice looking beer. Just not as good as I once though.

1 Jan 2006. 22 ounce bottle. 2005 vintage. 10/5/10/5/19
Served in a snifter. Pour like maple syrup, with a quickly vanishing beige head. Crystal clear. Aromas of sticky maple, chewy caramel, pungant citrusy hops, and nose hair singing alcohol. Tons of caramel with some hidden cherry notes. The hop character is nothing like I imagined it would be, and that is a good thing. Plenty bitter, and the flavor and aroma are just enought to let you know they are there. I’m brewing a barleywine tomorrow. This is what I hope to make.

cherr (162) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2006
I had the 2001 version on tap at the brewpub and have had the 2005 version out of a bottle. Both pour thick with a nice thin head. There is an amber hue and the smell is mixed malt/ sweet cherries. The taste has a nice hop backbone.

Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Cloudy ruby colored, smallish but dense tan head. Great aroma - fruity, oaky, with notes of wine, cherries, even a bit of banana, plus some citrus, smoke, and other hop aromas. Thick and syrupy. Malty at first, then very hoppy. Caramel, toffee, molasses all blend with a huge hop profile - oak, pine, grapeguit, and dirt (in a good way). Big thanks to Jcapriotti for the trade!

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2006
Hard to pick a colour, is it orange or red. It keeps changing under the lights. Looked almost dark pink coming out of the bottle. Light head. Aroma of hops, cinnamon and brown sugar. It’s aromatic strength lies hidden tempting you to breath deeply and then it really pulls you in. Flavour is lightly sweet. Overall like a very strong hoppy IIPA without any syrupy quality and with a nice spice character. Delicious sipper.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2006
2005 bottle. Pours a solid clear amber color with leanings towards garnet. Light white head that completely dissipates. Apricot, apple, peach brandy, nutty with alcohol hints. Nice aroma. The flavor has candied fruit, caramel, citrus hops (orange and grapefruit), and liquor like alcohol. Very strong and enjoyable. Slick and creamy medium body. Another good one, though I don’t think I’d spend 18+ per bottle again.

sprinkle (114) - Arcadia, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Deep copper but clear, light head but thick lace. Huge piney nose with big malts in the back. Rich and explosive in your mouth, hops that linger forever almost in your mouth. Sweetness comes on the finish and balances at he end. Still needs some time. ’05 vintage.
