4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12%ABV. Triple IPA.
Poured out dark amber. 16ºSRM.
Nose is sweet and dank. Ripe citrus. Papaya. Caramel and burnt milk aromas.
Mouthfeel is syrupy. Palate is deeply sweet with corn syrup. Other toasty flavors with some creamy, nutty flavors. I get some candied pecans. There is some broad fruity sweetness in the middle of the palate. Overall the palate is dominated by hops and alcohol. Hops are pine on the front briefly, then bitter melon, then spicy with cilantro and wild scallion, there is a bit of sweet spice that is reminiscent of a walla walla sweet onion.
Finish is long. Bitter melon and resin and fresh pine needles lingering on the back of the tongue.
Goes on Favorites List !

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear amber color with white head. Aroma has lots of sweet fruits, alcohol and hops. Taste is very malty with long very bitter and a bit sweet aftertaste. Flavors of pine, needles, caramel, alcohol, grapefruit and hops. Very hoppy and high in alcohol but still nice to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled a couple times. Feels like a torrent of red tropical fruits, more of a hoppy barley wine maybe. Pretty smooth and devilicious.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Intense caramel malts, overripe tropical fruits, rotten mango, passion fruit, resin, pine. Slightly hazy, dark brown, medium, creamy, off-white head. Medium bitter. Initially sickly sweet caramel, molasses, bread malts, then resin, pine, very bitter, full bodied, dry finish. Interesting IIPA, very intense, would not have guessed the ABV, quite harsh finish. Bottle from Discount Liquor, Milwaukee.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap, Craft Bar Grayton Beach, FL. Pours dark orange with white head. Maltiness and hops on the nose. Caramel, cereal, herb-y resinous twang, hops all over the place, super balanced. In the mouth it’s more of the same but here you see just how incredibly balanced this brew is. Strong malt character countered with crazy hops and they somewhat cancel each other out. On the finish is where there’s a lingering bitterness. Medium bodied brew. At 12% the booze is totally hidden and it’s pretty crushable. Aside from the powerful bitter finish which I don’t mind but am not crazy about, I really enjoyed this beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark orange colour, almost red, a head is medium and blond. Aroma is powerful, strong maltyness with caramel, pine, grapefruits, some warming alcohol. Taste has strong maltyness, resiny wood, some fruitness, hint of alcohol is there as it should be there, maybe. A bitterness is strong, but it’s not feel so strong due to heavy maltyness in the body. Full bodied but not heavy. Powerfully at all ways, tasteful... yeah it is.

Very much a barly wine - huge malt character. Bittering hops very strong at the end. Nive ruby color.
