Updated Review 02/08
This vintage seems MUCH hoppier than my original review would suggest. VERY aggressive and less balanced than my tasting in 2006. Frankly I liked it much less than in 2006.
Original Review 08/06
Thanks go out to Silentsabre and Beerbeing for the opportunity to try this one.
Light orange marmalade colored body with good clarity and a very light head. Some retention but both the head and lacing are very fine and delicate rather than substantial.
Sweet hops in the nose with some organic hay type smells. Pretty light mouthfeel, but refreshing.
Hops are big and upfront, but at the same time really refreshing and moreish. Significant sweet character too. Some decent metallic hops in the aftertaste as well.
Not as big a hop bomb as I was expecting*, but a very nice beer.
*This beer is a few months old so no doubt they have been tempered somewhat.
