2003 bottle from the cellar.

A - Nice dark amber translucent color. Off white, soapy, two finger head.

S - Sweet, very hoppy, and spicy. Sometimes I forget how much I love this beer.

T - Bitter and hoppy up front. Really tastes like a barleywine now. Spicy and hoppy, but with a good malt balance. Hops did not fade with age much.

M - Just thick enough and the carbonation was still spot on, even with over 2 years on it.

D - What a great beer. Not many IPAs can age well, but this is one. Wish I had more that the 3 more bottles of 2003 downstairs.
