A: Orangish/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thick White Head, Good Lacing S: This smells like a bad, gritty barleywine. There is zero bottle dating but I am going to say that this is an old bottle. T: This is completely devoid of any hops... M: Great Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, ...this is either an old bottle or just junk. Overall....nothing more to say.

Poured this at a good temperature with a mammoth, foamy, frothy, thick, cream-colored head that settled very slowly and plenty of lace. Color is a clear amber with many bubble trails. Aroma is mainly fresh hop composed of citrus and then resin. Canít hardly smell much else. Flavorís like nose, fairly dry, mostly bitter with complimentary carbonic tang. Body is a bit thin and carbonation is decent. Finish is like flavor with bitterness being very long; not much sign of the alcohol. Too bitter without the balance for me.

Deep golden orange pour, thin decent layer of creamy off white head and sticky striped lacing ... aroma of chewy caramel malts, citrusy hops, light pine and a little resiny ..... taste of citrusy and light piney hops, mostly chewy caramel malts, little resiny ... nice bitter hop bite that lingers into the finish ... like a cross between an imperial red and dipa ... abv hidden insanely well for 9.3% ... they must have changed their recipe .. nicely done

Can from Mariís. Pours crystal clear orange with a couple fingers of off white head. There is tons of carbonation in the glass supporting the retention of the head. The aroma smells like a pine tree, pine cone, some resin, light floral notes, mild caramel. The taste on this is pretty damn bitter and hits you pretty quick on the tongue. The hop flavor is fairly earthy and has a strong caramel backing. Limited citrus on this and the finish is very dry. Donít see the low rating.. pretty solid overall brew for my palate.

Tasted from a bottle received as a trading extra. Pours a clear light brown with very little head, but just decent lace. The nose is caramel malt with good fruitiness, featuring mostly dried fruits, and a nice grapefruit hop aroma that sneaks in under everything else. The flavor has some sweetness up front, but is a little more bitter than expected from the nose with the citrus and almost raisin fruitiness coming through as well. The body is fairly full, but has somewhat of a watery texture with very little carbonation and a long bitter and fruity finish.

Can. Moderate malt aromas of roasted and caramel, pine for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with pepper and dried fruit. Head is large, fizzy/frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy yet sparkling light amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, slick, with a soft to lively carbonation. Nothing over the top in this DIPA but everything is in the right place per the style.

12oz can poured into glass. While I was intrigued by having a DIPA out of a can this one didnít really live up to my expectations. There just wasnít enough hop character to it and it was overall pretty boring.

Really nice drink. Thanks kathouse. Pours a hazy light peach colour. Really nice fresh herbal and spicy hop notes. Some fresh fruit too. Nice earthy and musty flavours.. Very balanced and the hops are nicely restrained. No booze detected. Pretty great stuff.

Yellow brown reddish in color... Sweet syrupy aroma... Flavor is fairly sweet, burnt caramel malt, finish is not very bitter, mild spicy hop finish... Not the best
