Taster at the Blarney Stone’s Solstice Fest, Oak Forest. Cloudy amber color with a fruity hop smell. Simply tastes quite full of IPA goodness, but also plenty of malts to make for a pleasing balance. Lots of pine and a bit of apricot in the hop palate.

Barleywine, heavily kilned caramel malt nose, c120. Not my thing. Looking for a lighter body, more hop presence. Abv too low for how much malt character. Not a great representation of an 8% DIPA.

I agree with Underdogs88 that this beer looks, smells and tastes like an American barleywine, but I’m not going to dock it any points for that. It has either been categorized wrong, or it is a very malty DIPA. Either way, I liked it. Smells of caramel, brown sugar and some hops, but not much. Very pretty light brown/dark orange color with a small bone white head. Tastes malty, sweet and boozy with a bit of a hop bite afterwards which continues into the aftertaste. Very nice mouthfeel, palatewould be a 5 if it were less carbonated. This was enjoyable, whatever it is.

Very nice fresh hop aroma. The taste is ok with a sweet malt base and some citrus. Decent for a warm evening.

Poured from a can, cloudy, dirty orange with a big sudsy pale yellow head. Aroma is grassy with some citrus and malt. Flavor is malty, a hint of orange. This has a nice creamy feel. I’ll buy this one again.

American barleywine like aroma. Appearance is a cloudy orange color with an offwhite head. Flavor again is more like an American barleywine than a DIPA. Mouthfeel is medium high with medium low carbonation. Overall, this beer is an American barleywine not a DIPA. The beer also tastes old and oxidized.

Grabbed a 4-pack of cans while in St. Louis this week. Pours a dark, cloudy amber-orange with a tall two finger off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of dank citrus hops, caramel malts, grass and pine. Taste is big on the dank citrus hops that are evenly balanced with big caramel malts. Fair amount of boozy alcohol on the backend as well. Getting more of the citrus and hop resin in the finish. Medium to full body, sticky texture, average carbonation. Overall a very good DIPA. Nothing really that makes it stand out from other DIPAs out there, but still quite tasty and well done!

Pours slightly hazy, frothy white head with good retention, carbonation good, slightly tropical or fruity, very light on the boozy flavor for the high abv. still something about it that is not for me

12 oz. can purchased at The Beer Shoppe or $3.95. A tad pricey but worth the sample for sure. Cloudy Amber color with fast diminishing head that leaves very little after it settles. Aroma is rather nice, heavy with resin, pine qualities with a spicy rye (or at least spicy) malt note.
Flavor starts with a moderate level of malt and citrus backed by a chewy yeast body. The chewy yeast gives way to a rather bold pine. The resin pine isn’t real big at first, it seems to stack up after you work your way though the glass. No date is displayed any place on the can, yet it’s clear to me it on the fresher side. If you find this on draft or fresh can don’t pass it up. Tasty
