Anyone else think this has barley wine characteristics? Great flavor and aroma. A solid beverage!

APPEARANCE - Transparent coppery red. 5-finger head that lasts awhile. Some lacing. SMELL/AROMA/SCENT - Very aromatic. I could smell it from 3 ft. away. Strong piney, just a little sweet. Herbaceous. TASTE - Piney, herbaceous, cloves, rye bread. ABV very well-hidden. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Light and dry, with very good carbonation for a high ABV brew. Well balanced. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - This is the Levy’s Jewish Rye of IPAs. Magnificent resiny aftertaste that stays with you. A very drinkable ale. You can guzzle this one (if you dare).

Mmmm. Pours deep red with a small off white head. Aroma is huge amounts of sweet malt. Body is heavy with a full mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with a slight bite.

jmohno (1059) - Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Clear amber,short,rich frothy head,light lace. Nice malt and good hop aroma. Caramel vanilla tones. Great malt and hop flavor also. Smooth and creamy,not too dry. Pretty impressive, drinks easier than I would have expected with no offness or much booziness. Little bit on the end but hops and malt dominate. In a way this reminds me some of maharaja almost. Probably the hop combo and possibly some of the malts. Dig this. Ton of good hops and malts.

Garry_Evans (29) - HONG KONG - JUL 25, 2014
Dark copper with big brownish head. Aroma of caramel, liquorice, sweet malt. Soft on palate, incredible range of flavours from toffee and burned caramel to raisins and resiny malt. Impressive but not really to my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zvsn (551) - ISRAEL - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle sample at He’Brew tasting at Beer&Beyond shop. Clear amber-red with a small head. Aroma of hops, dried fruits, spices and alcohol. Sweet, flavors of caramel malts, fruits and toffee, strong hoppy bitterness, alcoholic, a bit medicinal and spicy. Medium bodied, chewy. Bold but too aggressive and boozy for my liking.

Bottle to pint glass. No best by or born on dating. Pours clear amber/red with a decent one finger head that leaves a decent cap. Aroma is caramel malt and hops. Taste follows through with a nice rye bite at the end. Finish is full and slick with decent carbonation. Really good beer overall. Nice and balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (1724) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a drop orange/red with full head. Aromas of caramel, malt extract and grass much like a barley wine. Flavors of toffee/grass, bitter dried oranges, and toasted malts. The rye adds a nice sharp note. ABV is noticeable but does not distract too much. Very enjoyable.

Paincane (151) - Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Ruby amber body w/ a pretty tan head, good lace and nice head retention. Rye, grain & caramel malty aromas. Malt forward front end. A melange of hops finish dry, clean and bitter. A very well-balanced brew that is equal parts malt and hops.
