750mL bottle thanks to Jason! Poured medium plummy-amber with a thin creamy head. The aroma picked up some strong, odd sugars.. overripe oranges and apples, some apricot, biscuit and noticeable alcohol. The flavor is very sweet even at colder temperatures. Fairly hoppy but the sweetness and alcohol really mask any bitterness. Some lemon peel finish and a slightly astringent soapiness. Long, warming finish. Heavy body with a sticky, oily texture. This beer took some time to kill. Its a little "heavy-handed." I dont know if aging would really help this much. Perhaps it would be smoother. The text on the label was off-putting. Do we really have to resort to all this "big-boy" trashtalking on beer labels? One Stone Brewery is about all I can handle. (Perhaps CC was making fun, but I sure couldnt tell.) Just tell us about the beer. Dont make it a test of your manliness, please.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
750ml bottle purchased at Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida. Golden-orange in colour with a large long lasting white head, excellent lacing. Aroma is quite sweet, lots of caramel malts, light citrus hops, noticeable alcohol. Flavour is very chewy, rather hot, lots of malt in this, very sweet and syrupy, some citrus hops. Sweet and warming mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. FInishes long, hot and sweet. A big IIPA that is nowhere near being balanced. Still good though.

haukur (1916) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - NOV 30, 2013
Insane oaky aroma of vanilla, cedar and slight cocoa and candy. Heavy on the tongue, a bit malty with a sticky sweetness balanced somewhat with the heavy vanilla and cedar. Quite an awesome brew and lucky to sample this batch

travita (4956) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The look is cloudy, ok off white head, and orange in color. The smell is sugar, fruits, apple juice, caramel, and more sweetness. The taste is very sugary, under attenuated. Not good a sugary mess.

DoublEE (782) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
I do not detect a hop presence. Malty, sweet, syrupy, raisins, brown sugar, more sweetness. Tastes like a blend of orange soda and prune juice.

Bottled. Has a great amount of alcohol and some sweetness to it. Malt, cedar, caramel, vanilla. The hops is not that noticeable. I personally love this beer.

Raiting #4000, thanks to Stobbe74 for sharing. Pours cloudy copper with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, dried fruit, alcohol, peach and grapefruit. Flavour is caramel, alcohol, dried fruit, peach, grapefruit and citrus. Smooth and extremely well balanced. Imperial IPA meets Barley Wine. Nice.

Pours an unclear and dark copper beer with an offwhite/orange head. The aroma is malt, fruit, dried fruit, alcohol, wood, vanilla, caramel and hops. The flavor follows the nose with additional grapefruit and citrus. The palate is smooth with sweetness and some bitterness. Overall a really good and complex beer.

Huhzubendah (3686) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Shared at my tasting on August 7, 2010. Thanks to whoever brought it! A: Slight hazy orange-ish hue. Medium-small sized head that leaves a few traces of lacing on the glass. S: This is NOT an IPA. Not by any standards. Heavy malt, little to no hop presence. T: The taste is even more disappointing than the aroma. The beer is way too sweet, with no hops, citrus, floral, or anything else that might be used as a descriptor of a tasty American DIPA. As far as style, this beer gets a WTF rating. There is nothing right about this beer and everything wrong. The taste is odd, off, and overly sweet. The flavor is more like a barleywine gone wrong than anything. Ick... M: Cloying from the first drop. Awful. D: Im grateful for the opportunity to have tried this beer, as I was really looking forward to it. However, it was plain awful. Drain, meet beer.

glennmastrange (2802) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted, caramel and cookie for the malt, moderate cooked orange for the hops, light dough and broth for the yeast, with date and brown sugar in the background. Head is small, fizzy/frothy light beige with no lacing but good legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy amber orange. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet, lightly acidic and light to moderately bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily with a soft carbonation. A little short on acidity and a little too sweet for a DIPA, but this is still an excellent beer.
