Beer I bought without much thought, but pours kind of amurky color, looks, tastes and feels like a crude DIPA ala 1832, not sure this is truely representative of the authentic style, either way a peculiar beer.

Brown with small head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Full body. Alcohol noticable but not overwhelming. Malty caramely flavors but a lot of hops as well. Don’t know if this is really a mild ale but it was pretty tasty.

pours a nice golden yellowish colour with a thin head which dissipates quickly aroma of alc. barnyard and the taste like a mild barley wine great flavour smooth on the palate super easy to drink for 10 percent

This is a pretty hoppy beer with wheat, citrus, alcohol, slight pine. Pineapples and maybe some minty weirdness.

a-nothing special, but decent hazy copper with finger worth of head.
s-very nice, complex and a whole lot going on. Sweet zest of a clemintine, bit of spice and well hopped
T-much like the smell, but even more intence lot’s of flavor. Malt, citrus zesty, peppery spice, a touch of wood and a very nice dry finish.
M&D- much more delicate than I would have imagined. A bit too carbonated at first but it settled down after a bit. Very drinkable especially for the alc% of this one. I was very impressed there.
Overall a very good beer from a great brewer.

Shared at RBWG11: Cloudy orange-yellow color with a thin lacing. Smells like alcohol, vanilla, and bread. Taste of old bourbon, vanilla, barrels, and some bitter hops. Mouth is pleasantly warming and dry.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful bright orange pour with a soft white cap. Aroma is very fruity with some floral notes and alcohol. A bit too hot though to pick out much in the taste past the alcohol & hop bitterness.
