12 oz bottle: Pours a bright orange/yellow with a nice white head and dubious CO2 release throughout. Aroma is complex with lightly caramel malt, citrus and floral hops and an earthy finish. Taste is hop forward with great malt balance, not too sweet, slightly bitter and dry on the finish. Slightly bubbly, alcohol masked well, and easy to drink Could be sessionable!?!?

bottle trade with papso.
very slightly unclear golden, smooth white head.
bitter hoppy, bready, malty aroma, loads of bitter hoppinness, but not as flowery as some, aroma indicates something pretty heavy.aroma also have some sweet fruity or ripe fruity notes, blending with the bitterness.
flavor is flowery nectar, loads of sweet malts, and then loads of bitter hops, the malts and hops also resemble a US barley wine a bit, as it is this sweet and heavy, very sweet, very hoppy brew. If You need something very very solid, go for this one.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Old Chicago Colorado Springs, poured into a snifter. Color is a hazy gold with good carbonation and a rocky head. Aroma is a spice hop scent with a bold citrus note. It has a bolder medium body with a rich mouth feel that gives a citrus bite on the end. Flavor seems to have a bit of malt up front with a little caramel, but this is crushed by a huge citrus, a peppery lemon zest and pine sap, then a mellow bitterness. In the after taste the pine seems to clod up and hang on the back of your tongue.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle from bhensonb, thanks!) Pours a semi-hazy light gold color with a fairly thin white head and a solid amount of lacing. Aroma smells a lot like a barleywine, with plenty of sweet caramel, oxidation, booze soaked raisins, and some booze soaked pineapple. Not too much in the way of hops here, with just a suggestion of citrus peel and a light floral undertone. Taste possesses some iced tea component, with more clear flavors of slight darjeeling showing on the semi-astringent finish. Little hint of lemon zest here too. Further flavors of sugared prunes and caramel. Even though the aroma had some heat to it, the alcohol is very subdued in the flavor. There’s a glimmer of heat right before the finish gives way to bitterness, but that’s about it. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is borderline spritzy.
