UPDATED: MAY 31, 2014 Clear dark straw color. Drinkable barley wine...at first. Bounces between alcohol and bitterness. Kind of a pale bareywine, but hot. ..... starts off as an ipa ends as a barley wine.

On tap, into a standard bar pint glass -- Active head, intense and exciting aroma. Malt is very much a DIPA base but brewed at BW strength and intensity. Good beer with my meal, but whew, drinker beware of multiples. Boozy and tasty.

Oh what an odd wonder! Golden with minimal head. Nose is a mixture of sweet and salty, taste goes through everything, from orange marmalade to malts, to again something salty that I can’t identify. It goes smooth and creamy til the end without tasting the booze. Niiiiiice!

On tap @ Rogue Public House - Portland. Clear orange colored beer with white foam. Super piney and resinous. Sticky sap and and caramel. Pretty sugary as well. The bitterness is just insanely intense. At least some good grapefruit and citrus rind. But that bitterness is just a little too much.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
10oz on tap at Half Cut. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves decent lace. Bready sweet malt, some pine, peppery citrus. White grape. Moderate-plus sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Some alcohol warmth, but no burn nor bite. Kind of drinks like a bigger, heavier DIPA with a big bready sweet malt component. Grapefruity hop. Big body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Solid DIPA (DIPA?) but the big bready malt sweetness kind of brings it down. I look forward to trying this same batch again 6 months from now (sarcasm). Hides the alcohol decently well I think, but definitely maltier and sweeter though.

750 from Wegman’s. Pours turbid orange with minimal off-white hjead. Nose is orange marmalade, hops, tannins. Tastes rich, even somewhat cloying, perhaps, with heavy orange marmalade notes, hops, peach, and an overall finishing sweetness. Well hidden alcohol, but lightweights need not apply.

I'm very impressed with this beer but despite its DIPA label the real flavor comes from the malts. Rich with bread like quality, earthy and mild floral. Strong but it's hidden. A true beer drinkers beer

Bottle. Pours a rather cloudy brownish orange color with a smallish off-white head on there. Nose has a bit of hoppiness to it, but is quite faded, and some strong caramel notes to it. Taste is moderately bitter, but balanced out by an underlying sweetness that ends up being quite warming. I feel like I should drink this in front of a fire.

Draught at the Rogue Taproom, Portland, OR.
Cloudy golden colour with a tiny off-white head.
Sweet malt, grassy and fruity hops, mild bitterness and sweet malty notes in the aroma.
The flavour is super strong... sweet malt, bitter hops and some alcohol. Resiny hops really... and sweetness.

Pours a murky straw colour. Aromas are sweet malts and corn syrup. Flavours are mostly bitter. Very hoppy barleywine. But a very good one.
