The Younger's a different animal.

It's a lot maltier than the nose suggests, but tons of citrusy goodness that balances out. Truly fantastic.
Good luck getting the Younger tho. It's brewed once a year, and this time it was sold out in a few hours. People actually flew in from all over the country for the release, and last I saw, growlers of it were going for $100+ on ebay.
