3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper-orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma is sweet and alcoholic. Taste is sweet with a citrus hop background. I was expecting the opposite. There’s a bit of dark fruit in there. Alcohol warmth is very noticeable. More barleywine/old ale than DIPA in my opinion. Since the hops are also "background" I think I’ll sit on these for a while and let the flavors mellow.

Pretty awesome. It has the taste and feel of an old ale with punch of hops. The bitterness is strong but somewhat subtle to the toffee, burnt sugar, and leather flavors that give way to a rich and delicious body. The bitterness helps with the cloying sweetness. 10% abv that’s sneaky.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a thick beige head and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt and complex hops. Tastes about as good as a beer can get with extremely complex flavors. The aftertaste is sweet and bitter, with lingering flavors. This beer is absolutely amazing.

Pours a golden amber with a tight off-white head that is fairly persistent. The aroma is a subtle citrus with resin & malt. There's a big malt flavor with subtle grapefruit and a note of vanilla & bourbon .... the texture is creamy on the palate with a quick dry finish of hope resin.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy and slightly browned gold with a decent white head. Nose is a strong blend of floral hops, ripe fruit, and oak barrel. Flavor is quite complex, with a good balanced IPA showing through on the front and a touch of whiskey on the back. Finish is semi-sweet and earthy. Very good

Draft at the Bierreri on 5th Ave NYC. This beer was part of a flight of local beers. It was the best of the flight. The ale had a distinctive creamy head with lacing. The ale poured a clear Amber color. The aroma of caramel malts and fruits greet you. The full bodied ale has average carbonation. This ale is special and a winner. The finish was clean as I drained the glass.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Doftar maltigt av mörka frukter, karamell, citron och aning gummi. Därtill en rejäl dos ek. Totalt sett inte så stor doft dock.
Elegant bärnstensfärg och ett kompakt, varaktigt skum.
Söt smak med brända inslag. En kryddig avrundning blandat med mandarin. Beskan är väl mycket tillbakahållen och helheten blir därför aningen för söt.
En fullödig kropp, silkeslen viskositet och en kittlande lätt kolsyra. Mycket tjusigt!

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark gold with a white head. Taste citrus, earthy, slightly sweet. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

Bottle, 355ml. More or less aged 1 year. Clear orangeish with a creamy tan head. Exquiste roasted and hoppy aromas. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Medium sweet with heavy bitterness. Deep aged and roasted character into a complex malty and bitter alcohol finish. Stunning beer, has aged brilliantly.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 355ml. A dark amber beer with a medium size white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of alcohol, bourbon, wood and spices. Taste is bitter with a strong alcoholic aftertaste. Medium bodied, dry and astrigent. Strong aftertaste that reminds me of wood and bourbon, with a nice malt character. Maybe not as hoppy as some of the Imperial IPAs I have tried, but definitely very nice.
