3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
For having 144 IBUs this actually wasn’t as much of a hop bomb as I was expecting; I guess the wine barrel aging takes away some of the bitterness? The flavors and aromas are nice and citrusy but a little one dimensional. Not much malt presence to balance the hop bitterness. Overall though this was pretty good, however.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Epcot. Poured a deep chunky amber body under a large frothy light tan head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, dark corn syrup, sweet orange fruit, dark sugar, and vanilla candies. Flavor of vanilla candy, molasses, sweet sugary citrus meat, grapefruit rind, dark sugars. Big body, chewy, cloying, average carbonation. Meh seems more like a barley wine

"Not sure of the age on this one...in hindsight, I’m guessing somewhere in the not so fresh range. Ample bitterness, but lacking any floral or citrus quality in the aroma, just some back of the mouth tropical fruitiness and a ton o bitters. Malt heavy in a way that suggests age. Not a fan for the coin."

Tap. Murky dark golden-brown. Good head on pour. Very piney nose. Lots of grapefruit, some syrupy sweetness, pine-bitterness.

This is a very strong beer. Tons and tons of hops. But it’s not all bittering hops, just mostly. This actually seems happier to me than a stone ruination.

Deep caramel orange in color... Aroma is sticky wet citrus hops, caramel malts... Flavor is really pleasant, malt forward with citrus notes, light bitterness throughout... Finish is incredibly smooth, vanilla and oak on the palate... Great beer
