Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, ripe fruit, citrus, caramel and had some floral notes. Flavor of caramel malts, orange zest, citrus, alcohol, tropical fruit and a touch of toffee. Sticky texture, medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation. wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2014

Overall, this bottle was about two months old and was pretty much a total barleywine.
Bomber. Orange pour with a white head. Rich resiny aroma and taste. Some fruit. Super rich. Soooo good!

Bottle share... Thanks, Donny! Aroma is sweet like oranges with a dank, hop smell. Appearance is a murky bronze. Taste starts sweet then turns slightly hoppy then finishes sweet. Palate is surprisingly sweet. Overall, a interesting beer. Would try again.

Review from backlog, bottle tasted 08/12/2012. Pours reddish brown, light tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, burnt sugar, mild pine hoppiness. Taste is sweet, vanilla caramel, toffee, prune, resinous piney hop character, verging on the slightly sour. Medium body. This was a bit off- weak as an IPA, not nice even as a barleywine, a bit of a confusing hybrid. DaTimBennett (111) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottled. CCB did it again! i love the 110k series. Has a great amount of alcohol and some sweetness to it. I’m looking forward to batch 6 bytemesis (9345) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle - thanks! Pours clear reddish amber with a large creamy puffy beige head that dissipates slowly leaving sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma is very malty - caramel, toffee, pine resin. Flavor about the same, medium sweet, medium bitter. Most of the hop character has faded into "bitter", but the beer remains quite interesting as an American strong or a barleywine. There is some zestiness to the bitter, which I am guessing is curacao. Not bad. Full bodied and creamy in the mouth. Dogbrick (14009) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2013
This beer pours a cloudy dark orange color with a medium creamy khaki head that recedes steadily to a compact film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, yeast and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of resiny hops, toffee, doughy malt and citrus. The finish is sweet with a citrus and piney hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
