Brown pour with a 2 finger head that laces well. Nose is slight, but of malt, alcohol and hops. The taste is complex. The malt serves as a backbone to aggressive hoping, which is amazingly balanced in terms of flavor and bitterness against a 12% alcohol content. Full bodied, which is rare in an IPA. It finishes balanced as well, with hop flavor and malt as the base with a lingering bitterness and alcohol note. This is a well crafted beer, especially considering the IBUs and alcohol content, but it takes those factors to extremes.

Rating based on the first few sips. As with all monster IPAs, the bitterness quickly builds to the point that I can’t actually taste anything but until then this dank, juicy, herbal beast quite nice.

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours a hazy amber with an off white head. Sweet, dank, hoppy, caramel aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Toffee, lemon, pine... sticky, slightly sickly, stuff and pretty boozy, but nice enough.

Pours a dark amber color with white head. Not as bitter as in thought, but still a little much

Bottle @ home, from Heinen’s, Cleveland, USA. Strong bit boozy aroma with cherry, plum and a hint of buttery cookies. Dark copper/red color with minimal white head and clear liquid. Strong taste with cherry, mango, some buttery cookies. Balanced with wide taste spectrum and long fruity hoppy aftertaste. Strong/medium body with medium/low carbonation. Overall, hyper taste and quality, although bit more malts would make it perfect.

Pours a really dark amber. Really good and easy to drink for a tripel. Not sure it is worth the price but really good.

Draft - Rich amber color, slightly brown. Doesn’t have much of any smell to it at all. Hints of vanilla and roasted flavors. Very sweet flavor.

12 oz bottle via my bro. Clear deep orange-copper with a fair tan head. Pungent orange and citrus, lots of sweet caramel maltiness, quite peppery, spicy, dank, wow. Medium-full body, syrupy with almost moderate carbonation. Lots of big orange and citrus, very sweet maltiness, resin, such a big beer.

This is a monster of a beer! Very rich intense malts balanced by an extremely complex hop cocktail. To my delight, not as hop forward as I had expected but full of flavor. This beer is much better served slightly chilled. I found it too much to handle when first poured out of the fridge. It opened up nicely as it warmed.

Make sure you eat something before drinking. It tastes gross otherwise. Really nice rich aroma. Hops, sugars, a little boozy. Heavy booze taste but nice hops and flavors. Bottle

Strong, aromatic, spiced, sophisticated and hints of autumn flowers and dry fruits. Hot punching combos on your head. It's not a wise idea to drink it at mid-noon or as breakfast companion, but in terms of the bed-warmer for a decent sleep, certainly it adapted.
