Bottle. A very, very nice double hop! I loved it upon first swallow. Very drinkable for a high alcohol content beer.

On tap at Tap & Grind on Orlando. Dark copper, thin foamy head. Warm smelling- brown sugar and toffee. Resiny pine taste with heavy caramel malt. Heavy mouthfeel. Hops stay with you well into the finish. A nice beer, although a little malty for my taste.

Poured from the bottle of a 6-pack, looks a chunky dark orange with lacing that documents every drink. It is a very mellow and smooth 10 percent-er. I was surprised to find that I had not tried this before, but if I see it on the shelf, this season or next, I will drink it again.

Light but punchy, Hoppy and smooth, not too bitter at all. A good bit of citrus, zesty but not tart. Really quite a standout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice, toffee-sweet aroma with notes of vanilla and sturdy strawberry esters. OK label, standard longneck. Brumous bronze color, lacing eggshell head. Up front itís a little chemical, especially when cold. Grapefruit pith, caramelized sugars, straw, elm sap, jute twine. Nicely bitter in the middle, but somewhat clingy towards the end. Goes distinctly grassy with a mellow sweetness in the aftertaste as it warms. Hard for me to determine where 2xIPA ends and barleywine begins. Respectable. New Leaf Market, Tallahassee.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish with a off white head. Taste pine, musty, hint citrus. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

Clear, reddish orange, darker in color than usual IIPA. Aroma is not strong, some citrus and pine. Flavor is huge though, lots of orange, caramel, apricot, grapefruit. Resiny, hoppy, sweet, a little boozy. Perhaps a bit malty for some but solid and enjoyable overall.

Pours a murky copper-orange with a small off-white head. Aromas of citrus hops, lots of grapefruit and oranges. Tastes of juicy fresh hops-- delicious! Nice body, creamy mouthfeel.

3/24/15 (Draft - Iron Horse Ale House Chicago) - Solid pour, slight tan head, copper red look. Nominal scent, great hoppy taste. Solid feel and texture, moderate carbonation, strong texture, bitter taste and kick going down. Overall excellent beer.
