"better than expected from this otherwise boring brewery. a little inconsistency with the two bottles iíve had, but both were aromatic and piney, bitter dry lasting finish."

Sep 06. Courtesy of Pailhead. Amber-orange, with average head, fades to ring. Aroma has tons of caramel and toffee, faint hops, slight oxidation already. Flavor again huge caramel, tons of oxidation, paper. Aged bw through and through.

A: Pours a nice deep copper color. There was very little head to speak of and little to no bubbles. There are lots of floaters in the glass, and despite its thick appearance there is no lacing seen. S: For a DIPA this beer has a very mild aroma. There is a definite sweet aroma coming from the glass kind which reminds me of the yeasty sweetness of rising bread dough. There are also hints of pine and grapefruit but not much, the sweet smell is what stands out to me. T: This one starts off pretty sweet as it splashes across my tongue. Then the taste of bitter grapefruit kicks in. The taste of hops is noted, but itís not what you would expect for a DIPA. This beer is balanced like a nice IPA instead of its big brother the DIPA. It is not over the top in any way shape or form. M: Medium bodied with an almost syrupy quality. It sticks to your mouth and flows down the throat. Thank god this one has a nice taste because it really lingers.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2009
An old bottle pours hazy orange with chunkies floating around in it. Aroma is strong hop, alcohol, and malt. Taste is toffee, bitter pine, almost like a barley-wine in itís alcohol content and flavor. Slightly boozy but not bad.

Hank1980 (945) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Bottle shared. Poured copper amber with a nice white head, little lace. Aroma of resinous hops, big malt, light booze. Taste is pretty hoppy considering the age. Some mild booze as well. Malt makes this really sweet. Finish is warming. Overall, a good aged IIPA.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Pours a hazy amber with some golden notes towards the top, some floaters. Beautiful beer. Aroma of resiny hops, booze, caramel malts, citrus. Similar taste, very boozy, drinking a 2006 bottle so very strong. Cheers

Butters (3843) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Bomber shared at Scottypís housewarming tasting. Pours a beautiful very hazy burnt orange with decent foamy offwhite head with spotty lacing. Nose of sweet old mellowed floral hops, honey, and mellow alcohol, but no burn. Flavor is sweet hop resin, with an enjoyable booziness. Despite having 3 years of age, this is still a really enjoyable beer. Iím really digging this.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Thanks Butters. Fading ring of beige head with a burnt orange body full of white particulates. Aromas of resin, sticky, mellow hops. Flavor is resin, pine, caramel. Reminds me of a barley wine. Alcohol stands out.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium creamy yellowish beige head. Some floaties are present. The aroma has a candy like sweetness, a big dose of caramel malts, and big citrus hops. The flavor has a big caramel malt presence accompanied by some fruits and more sweetness. The hops are there but have probably faded a bit. Orange citrus is at the forefront with hints of pine and floral around as well. Full bodied, viscous, and warming as it goes down. I would have liked to have had this fresh to compare.
