Sample. Golden color with little head. Big grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit, other citrus taste. Hides the alcohol. The kind of IPA I like.

(Echantillonné au Bagby Fest): Terriblement équilibré entre les sucres et la résine. Les fruits tropicaux sont indécents de leurs qualités juteuses, buvabilité démesurée.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
13 oz draught, Pint Room. Surprisingly light-colored; golden-copper, smaller white head. Aroma heavy pine and citrus, some caramel. Flavor is a punch in the face; over the top too much hops, Jesus. 10% abv doesn’t show at all in the flavor, but you can certainly feel it. Pint Room had this under their "Barleywine" section and this is a terrible misclassification--it’s an IIPA and nothing else. Poorly balanced.

Rozi’s in Lakewood. Fruity hops with dank resins, some herbage. Copper with thin white head. Flavor hits real hard with resin and weed like hops. Lots of alcohol and some tropical fruit . Pretty tasty. Big.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler from Save On. Bright clear gold with lasting flat head and lace. Citrusy bready lemon and orange aroma. Mildly toasted honey peach apricot malty fruity sweetness with assertive citrus rind and some resiny woody grassy hops in long bitter slightly alcoholic finish. Full very soft body. Excellent DIPA. Barleywine? No, I don’t think so.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft a few times, most recently at Big Beers and Barley Wines Dayton. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a big hoppy component around a decent malt base. Caramel, lightly toasted, citrus, resin and earthy hops that don’t make it easy to classify. They list it as an American Barley wine and the site has it as an Imperial/Double IPA. Either way it is tasty and worth a try if you get the chance.
