Amber pour with a huge thick off-white head. Citrusy hops and considerable spice aroma. Flavor is super smooth, dry, citrus, hoppy and the alcohol is very well hidden. A great beer.

Bottled@Akkurat, Stockholm. Amber colour, not that much head. Aroma is fruits, grass, some mild zesty notes as well as grass and wood. Also quite sweet malty notes. Flavour is caramel malts, some fruity and floral hops along with mild alcohol and some wooden and spicy notes. Alcohol, fruits and mild spicyness in the finish and aftertaste.

Poured copper in color, with a small, foamy head. Fruity aroma. Taste is syrupy sweet up front followed by a nice citrusy bitterness, with notes of orange and grapefruit. Must be savored slowly.

Bomber shared by someone at jhenry04 on BA’s housewarming. Pours cloudy amber in color with a fairly well-formed off-white head. The aroma is very fruity. Pineapple, tangerine, and grapefruit back up the sweet caramel malt, and there is a little pine as well. Flavor is also sweet and fruity. Very tropical, with pineapple, mango, peach, and tangerine. Some pine resin and lots of sweet caramel malt. This is very hoppy, but not in the palate-wrecking way. Hop additions were likely earlier in the boil. Unfortunately for this beer, I like the palate-wrecking kind of hops. Booze well-hidden, with a fairly full and syrupy body. Good and tasty overall, but not exactly what I look for in a DIPA.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle from CAH. Pours deep copper w 3f off white head and great cascade. Nose is piney hops, caramel malt, florals, and tangerine. Tastes very resiny, syrupy, with huge c malt, tangerine, and earthy notes. Late heat and huge malt/hops throughout, and a great beer from these guys.

agl108 (729) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
750 mL caged bottle. Poured deep orange with minimal head. Appeared grossly undercarbonated. Flavor of sickly sweet caramel malts and toffee. Surprisingly thin and watery despite the big malty, hoppy flavor. A bit of warming alcohol present. Definitely more barleywine-esque than any IIPA I’ve had. Fairly disappointing.

Served from a 75o mL bottle via RateBrackets Winnings from jason. This brew pours a hazy golden copper hue with a huge cream head. A real nice floral hop bouquet on the nose with a sweet edge to it. The flavors have a lot of floral hop esters, very syrupy in consistency. Some nice flavors, a touch syrupy and sweet at times.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Deep copper color. Aroma is hoppy with grass and fruit. Very deep flavor of fruit, hops, honey. Floral in its hops content. Alcohol level is buried, though certainly not completely hidden. Drink a decent amount, and you’ll feel its strength. I’ve had this both from the bar on tap and in the bottle, and it is certainly worth the purchase.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2010
Nice texture with sticky malts attached to it and a high alcoholic twang. Strong citrus aroma with almost a hint of bourbon malts. I’m not too fond of all the sweetness in this beer even though it is well crafted and has a juicy hop profile. The malts are too pronounced for me. It makes me wonder what a hoppy barley wine would taste like.
