10/11/2013. On tap at the brewery. Amber color with a white head. Caramel aromas with malt, citrus and pine. Caramel flavors, some malt and hops, but muted. A bit of alcohol on the finish.

Weird freakin’ beer. The aroma is strange, caramel malts, and some sort of condiment sauce, like bbq. The flavor was malty, peppery, with a strong undercurrent od tobasco or something like that. The finish was sweet, but with an odd aftertatste. Something went wrong here...

I generally love the hoppy beers at willibrew but this was too boozy, malty and unbalanced to even qualify as a DIPA to me. Tasted like an over hopped dubbel or something. Not my favorite.

Drake (9012) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color with a large off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of herbal, floral, fruity hops, toffee malts and a bit of butter. The taste is intensely fruity with notes of melon, stone fruits and citrus, along with some herbal notes and toffee malts. Medium bodied.

Ernesto987 (3933) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 17, 2012
sampler at the brewpub, horribly boozy. Almost barleywine/wheatwine boozy. Very bitter though, which sort of helsp but its alcohol then bitter. Not my type of beer.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Growler (I am guessing this is it, but will move if I confirm that it isn’t) thanks to t0rin0. Pours with a hazy golden brown body and a tan head. Aroma is grassy, catty, windex, pine, lemon and bitter. Flavor is bitter, lemon, citrus. Dry and bitter. Not amazing, but not bad either.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Appearance: Iced tea brown with orange folds. A small off white crown rapidly dissipates and leaves little lace. Smell: A touch of malt sweetness along with a healthy dose of juicy hops....almost smells fresh hopped. Taste: Initial hop bitterness that opens up into a slightly fruity and slightly buttery malt profile. Finishes slightly bitter and slightly dry. Mouthfeel: medium bodied and a touch slick but I think this growler has lost some carbonation since it was poured (5 days ago). Growler says "best consumed within 24 hours of pouring" on it and I think they might be right. Drinkability: No alcohol presence which is cool considering the abv. More carbonation and a better flavor profile would make it more drinkable though. Nothing special but not bad. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 10-08-2009

Tap at the brewpub. Aroma bursting with fresh citrus hop character, orange, grapefruit, lemon, some peach as well. Flavor keeps the hops coming though also gets a bit taken down by residual sweetness. Great display of hops, not as great getting rid of distractions.
