j12601 (6778) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a clear light amber brown with a medium sized white head. Big bright hops on the nose, bright and full of pungent earth and citrus. Medium bodied, spicy malt and citrus, toast and warm yeast. A touch of warming alcohol, toast, malt, spicy hops. Pungent earthy bitterness into the finish. Blurs the line between IIPA and barleywine. Interesting.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pours a dark amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is hops with a decent amount of toffee and caramel malts, some tropical fruits, kind of smells like a weak DIPA. Taste its lots of sweet caramel malt and fruity hops, reminds me of bells this one goes to 11, palate is kind of thin, needs more body to it.good but far from great.

AirForceHops (3516) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 18, 2013
22oz. Bottle. Winooski Beverage Wear house. Almost clear amber color with thin white head. Nose is caramel, toffee and the hops that they speak of. (Bravo). Flavor is malt forward with hops an after thought. Molasses, honey, figs, brown sugar and some citrus hops to cut the sweetness. Overall for the price it is a nice Barley Wine.
