Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a dark amber/red colored body with a one and a half finger’s worth of foamy white head that leaves some lacing that clings to a spider web effect to the sides of the glass. The smell was a sweet and spicy rye malt, some sweet sugary notes. The taste was mainly sweet through the previously noted aromas, sticky rye aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a medium, actually slightly sessionable despite the alcohol saying its supposed to be at 10% so it seems to be hidden well (I wonder how old this is...?). Carbonation is pretty smooth for a DIPA. Overall, this is a good DIPA that I would come back to. I like the fact that for the ABV it comes across fairly drinkable.

Pours a clear amber color with a big light tan head. The smell is caramel, a bit of spice, citrus pine. The taste is citrus, caramel, tropical fruit ending with biscuit, dry and bitter. The body is a bit sticky medium with very fine carbonation. Good stuff!

bottle. Dark reddish brown pour, minimal head that hits the bricks after a few min’s. Aroma, wowie wow wow, strong malty aroma, thick like a barley wine almost, some pine, and more malt. Taste, Hoppy up front, followed by some malty sweetnessand then wam a big dose bitter hops with some rye spice to finish it off, the aftertaste is very bitter and leaves some spices on the back of your throat and tongue, mouthfeel is somewhat slick and there is bit of heat on this guy but still very drinkable. Good stuff

Advocate_Ames (426) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours a clear dark reddish amber with an off white creamy head that sticks to my glass. The aroma is hop driven. This double has a nice citrus scent with a sweet malty back drop. In tasting I picked on the rye character with a sugary malt like blend of flavor. It is rather sweet, boozy, and has a pleasant bitter bite. Overall a solid beverage with an interesting rye twist.

Nice spice from the rye, lovely sweet maltiness, boozy, bitter bit back from the hops. This is a solid beer.

Wow. A ton of what I’m attributing to rye, but I suppose I don’t really know. This beer is hugely in your face. Big. Deep amber, persistent almond foam, slightly off funk nose. Opens huge on the palate like a bourbon, finishes bitter like an IPA. It’s like a barleywine wine with an IPA added to it. Sorta. Well crafted and complex.
