Thanks to Grant for picking this one up in harrisburg, pa. From a 22oz bomber at home. I felt this beer was understated in the hops. I think this would be a good barleywine, but it was not very hoppy except in the finishing bitterness. Slightly sweet and very malty.

Has the color of apple cider; a copper amber. Pretty weak hop taste which wasn’t enough for me.

A little flat. Left me wanting more hops. Aroma is good. Color is good, but a little weak for a double.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a syrupy cascade of dark amber and medium bodied brown ale. Head is about 1cm large and lingers a bit with small islands. Froth is not an issue, but the lacing on the glass is great. Aroma is grainy, couch medicine, maple syrup likeness, bountiful gumdrops of all colors, and an interesting mix of the hops and bittering malts, which gives a sweet, sticky feel on the mouth, very fluid and dense and thick going down. Looks the same in the glass. Not an overally hoppy brew one would expect, but a solid bump up from a standard ipa no doubt. Abv can be felt in the aftertaste, but not an issue at all. This ones a banger.

Dark amber with a light white head. Aroma is subtle citrus. Bready, malty and lemony with bitter hops. Not my favorite high octane IPA

Bottle. Deep copper color with large foamy head. Definitely well hopped as promised. With 9.25% ABV, one bottle goes a long way.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is slightly hopped but mostly musty. Appearance is a good ipa color but with a smallish head. Taste is sweet and hopped with some zest. Palate is thick from sweetness, which makes it hard to drink except in small quantities. Good thick ipa without overpowering hop character.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nicely hopped, but heavy on the malt as well. Hop flavors were dank, pungent, a little citrus. Full bodied beer with a bready malt characteristic. Overall a different double ipa than your typical American style. Definitely worth trying.
