marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Appearance is dark copper with a good-sized off-white head which leaves significant lacing. The aroma is intense citrus, bitter hops, and some slight earthiness and spiciness. The taste follows the nose. Good feel. This beer has a very strong, bitter taste, but it is very good.

rosenbergh (8268) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2015
12 oz bottle. (Davy Jones Liquor Locker) Venice, CA. Clear amber colour with a mid-size foamy light sand head. Dark hops, strong bitterness and sweet maltiness in the aroma. Very malty and hoppy aroma. The hops are not necessarily that fresh. The flavour is herbal and resiny hops, strong bitterness, very strong sweet maltiness and some spices. Strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

acearl (414) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2015
12 oz pour, copper hue with creamy tan head, minimal lacing, overly sweet caramel malt smell with a bit of grapefruit, syrupy texture a bit sweet but maybe a pickled finish, overall more of a barley wine than an IPA but different and exemplary of the brewer

bluejacket74 (1509) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2015
12 ounce bottle, no bottling date that I could find. Served in a DFH IPA glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a couple inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like caramel malt, spicy rye, peppery spice, and pine and citrusy hops. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some tropical fruitiness, earthiness and oranges. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s coating and is well carbonated. The 10% ABV is well hidden, it sure doesn’t drink like a beer that is that strong. One of my buddies gave me a bottle of this recently, and I’m glad he did! I wouldn’t mind trying this again, definitely worth picking up!

Clear deep reddish mahogany with an ample tan head. Spruce, caramel, hint of vanilla, bread. Quite strongly bitter, big malt sweetness. Chewy, oily, medium body, longer finish. Quite good.

tom10101 (3670) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Sample @ EBF.

Appearance: Bright golden-orange with a medium off-white head and good lacing.

Aroma: Burst of eucalyptus with caramel, peppermint and booze.

Taste: Moderate sweet. A lot of eucalyptus and peppermint with an heavy caramel malt presence, boozy notes and moderate bitterness. A bit more "balanced" than the aroma, but still cloying.

Palate: Medium to full body. Moderate to medium carbonation. A tad creamy. Sticky eucalyptus finish. Warming, borderline burning finish.

Overall: We aren’t in the "easily drinkable" category. A flavorful, but boozy and cloying DIPA. Way too much eucalyptus.

JulienHuxley (4023) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Sample at EBF. Clear deep copper pour with lacy off white head. Aroma is dominated by caramel, eucalyptus, menthol, leafy hop, light medicinal notes, boozy, lots of raisins. Taste is bitter, lots of caramel, tons of menthol, leafy bitter hop, booze, raisins. Palate is full bodied, cloying and sticky, med carbonation.

thb (744) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Attractive crystal clear copper with half inch of lasting foam. Aroma is hop heavy, leaning towards the resin/tropical fruit end of the spectrum. Also a pungent spiciness (presumably the rye). Taste has a big grainy kick at the start, and the there’s definitely rye. Pumpernickel beer. Bitter and sweet in balance. Chewy and boozy, alcohol is really pushing into barleywine territory.
