12oz bottle. Deep brown-amber body, unfiltered. Steady, massive, beige head. A pretty malt forward example of the style, certainly a little antiquated. Could pass for a Barleywine easily, in essence it really is one. Nothing about it is really off, but nothing is particularly exciting etiher. Not outright piney or resinous, which is nice, more of a light zesty classic NW thing going on. OK, but I wouldnt want a four-pack.

Pours a hazy amber orange color. About three fingers tan head. Good retention, very good lacing.

Aroma is interesting. Like a combination of several styles of IPA. I smell tangerine, grapefruit, tropical fruits, citrus. I smell bitter hops, but malty sweetness is still coming through. Theres bread crust, and a touch of caramel. I dont pick up a lot of pine.

Okay, I taste the pine. Pine and pine resin. Feels like theres a film in my mouth that keeps emitting bitters. Bitter, almost mouth puckering. I taste orange and orange peel. Maybe a little pineapple. Its hard to find anything through the bitterness.

Mouthfeel is full bodied. It has an oily film on the palate that keeps delivering bitters. Noticeable alcohol burn. Its medium carbonated, I cant imagine how it would be with more carbonation....

Overall, pretty good. Head remains till the very end. Doesnt change a whole lot even after warming. Pretty good one. Not memorable enough to try gain, or to recommend.

30/IV/16 - 33cl bottle from a trade @ train ride to Tilquin English Beer Festival - BB: n/a, bottled: IV/16/15 (2016-451) Thanks to Brian for the trade!

Clear dark amber beer, creamy beige to orange head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, very malty, caramel, sugary, some vanilla. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter start, bit malty, very resinous, caramel, little fruity. Aftertaste: bitter, resinous, piny, very bitter hops, grassy, dry finish. Well, its pretty much what youd expect from a one year old iipa...

Bottle on the train to Tilquin Beerfestival. Very bitter, malty, light hops. Nice but maybe better fresh.

On tap at Charleville. Very pleasant and clean non-hoppy aroma. Dark for a DIPA with a cream colored cap of foam. Taste is one note hop bitterness but it does live up to its name. This is a strong take no prisoners DIPA. I would like a little more balance but overall it's ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2015 bottle. A muddy brown color with a lush light tan head. Good lacing. The aroma is hopcentric, piney and herbaceous with a hint of tropical fruit and caramel. Taste is the same with the hop flavor taking center stage. Has some green pepper and an almost charred taste that ends a little soapy. Has a medium mouthfeel that is semi-dry acerbic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
