Ale brewed with Curacao peel.

Sometimes a lot isn’t nearly enough. For the times when a lot plus a bit more is called for we proffer the 110K+OT series. This 5th iteration is a 25 OF, 5 FG, 11% abv, 5 SRm sort of brew. If you don’t know what all that jargon means the gist of this is; it’s more than you deserve. A lot more. And a little more than that too

750ml Bottle. This brew poured a hazy dark copper like orange topped with an average (1-2 finger) light tan creamy head, which slowly receded and produced some superb sheets of sticky lacing. As for the aroma it was bold and robust of a sweet light bread malt, floral and resin hops and a chewy doughy yeast, it also possessed notes of caramel, toffee, mango, citrus (orange), a light hint of butter and a strong scent of alcohol (cognac). The taste was rather intense right off with a sweet maltiness and had a nice buttery caramel presence from the get go, but quickly become very hoppy with a bold resin flavor and a sweet fruity alcohol ending. The aftertaste was with you for a very long time preceding the swallow, with a sweet hoppy alcohol warming left behind for further enjoyment. Mouthfeel was medium in body and somewhat syrupy in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall I found this to be an Imperial IPA that was very sweet, in fact it tasted more like a Barleywine than anything else. That being said, it was a fantastic brew with a easy drinkability and a fantastic fruity hoppy taste...

Pours to a hazy orange hued chestnut colored body with a white head. The aroma is a light orange covered chocolate. Like orange oil. The flavor is bitter grassy and pine hops with some light oranges and bitter malt. No signs of chocolate. The palate is medium bodied and has an extreme lingering bitterness.

Orangish pour small dense white head. Aroma is orange zest a hint of coriander some candied sugar a hint of alcohol. Full well coated palate. Flavor reminds me of a big sweet IPA. Lots of sweet malt caramels a good amount of orange zest hints of grass some hints of graham cracker. This beers a bit of a hit mess but it all works out and tastes pretty good.

750mL bottle, sent from Gillard (thanks a lot, Ryan), pours an opaque dark orange with a small beige head. Nose is very fruity and sugary, --more sugary than hoppy for a IIPA--, with notes of grapefruit, mango, candied sugar, resinous hops and a big sweet caramel malt backbone. Flavour matches almost identically, with loads of caramel malt sweetness, some grapefruit, some other tropical fruits and then a blast of resinous hops - finishes lightly bitter and quite sugary and fairly boozy. Way more malt-forward than a superior IIPA should be, but it’s still drinkable. Far from refreshing and more like a thick, syrupy barley wine, but still quite enjoyable.

750mL bottle courtesy of markwise pours clear deep copper with tan head. The aroma offers up sticky malts mixing with near robust levels of pine hop goodness and a modest level of sweet smelling fruity esters. Nice IIPA aroma. The taste is bold and rich and bitter. I get prune and cherry sweet fruity esters as well as firm levels of muted yet resiny pine hops. Between those notes sweet malts and pine hop flavor bind the experience together. Nice bold rich bitter IIPA and ‘homered’ in class too.

750 ml bottle via trade with smith4498 - Pours a hazy amber color with a half finger thick light tan head. Faint spotty lacing. Aroma is resin and pine hops. Flavor is toasted malt, floral, citrus, and resin hops, and tropic esters. The bitterness really lingers in the finish. The alcohol is quite noticeable. Full body. A really good beer. Thanks Jason.

Holy Cow this is a Big Beer! Thanks Dchmela! Nice dark pour with a light brown thick foamy head. Roasted barly and pine. Booming thick rich flavor with a bit of chocholet. Great pallat!

Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange with a small frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a floral hops, caramel, mango, and pine. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet caramel malt, grapefruit, and nice sweet finish. Tastes more like a barley wine than a IIPA.

Pours slightly hazy copper color with off white head. Fruity and citrusy aromas with some caramel. Sweet caramel flavor with juicy citrus hops with moderate bitterness. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Much sweeter and maltier than what I look for in a DIPA, but still a nice Barley wine or American Strong ale.
