COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with Curacao peel.

Sometimes a lot isnt nearly enough. For the times when a lot plus a bit more is called for we proffer the 110K+OT series. This 5th iteration is a 25 OF, 5 FG, 11% abv, 5 SRm sort of brew. If you dont know what all that jargon means the gist of this is; its more than you deserve. A lot more. And a little more than that too

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Pours to a hazy orange hued chestnut colored body with a white head. The aroma is a light orange covered chocolate. Like orange oil. The flavor is bitter grassy and pine hops with some light oranges and bitter malt. No signs of chocolate. The palate is medium bodied and has an extreme lingering bitterness.

Rumbero (32) - Miami, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Aged from late 2012. at 11% abv it should have done better. poured deep amber with thin off-white head that dissipates rapidly. on the nose its all caramel, honey-like sweetness, some toffee and unfortunately some oxidized staleness. taste is heavy malty sweetness, very boozy and significant bitterness. no trace of the curacao peel. beer is full bodied, oily textured, carbonation is medium to light, and theres some definite astringency present. finish is long, all alcohol warmth.

MrHangover (4128) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle @ THT July, courtesy of kermis. Most likely a very old bottle. Pours a darker golden beer with a big beige head on top. Aroma of booze, malts, some chocolate, almost like an Imperial Stout or Barley Wine. Flavor is very sweet, loads of booze and caramel and port wine touches. Defintely old. When rated according to style, this is nowhere near an IIPA, but considering age and how well it held up, this scores a bit better.

Scotty001 (523) - Portlethen, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Poured a hazy reddish brown, small tan head. Aroma of a Barley Wine. Full body, flavour as the aroma, quite meaty.

Bottle shared at Deans Technicoloured Dream-Shorts Tasting. Pours cloudy dark amber with a cream head. Aroma of caramel, butterscotch, orange peel, cheesy old sock malt, toffee and fruits. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter. Light full bodied with soft carbonation.

deanso (9493) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2015
Bomber shared at July THT courtesy of Kermis. Were not sure how old ot is. Thin off white head. Cloudy amber pour. Light bitterness. Maybe its too old. Its become more like a barley wine. Pretty decent though

Bottleshare thanks to homer. Pours a golden ruby color. Aroma is malty, hops died long ago. Taste is same, all malt. Hops died. Would like it fresh. Dont even want to rate it. Im Torn.

slowrunner77 (10457) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
As with batch 4, in no mans land as far as style is concerned. Not resembling any IIPA Ive ever had, though this may have been out for a while. Kinda fruity sweet hops and malt with an odd combo of fruits (curucao) and toast and caramel. You can tell its hefty, but no heat. Kind of a weird one, but enjoyed."

Unclear amber of color with an off white head. An aroma of sweets, honey and malty. A flavor of citrus, spice, yeast and orange.

jsquire (4209) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Deep amber color out of the bottle with a fluffy off white head. Big sweet nose with lots of dried fruit and a hint of leather. Big bready malt flavors with a rich creamy mouth feel. Flavors of raspberry, bitter orange, vanilla, honey, apricot jelly and alcohol. Some cardboard with an aged patina. Very nice, aged beer.

suprchunk (2982) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Deep amber. Small off white head little lacing. Big sweet malty aroma. Slight fruit and raisin. Taste is a big malt with a slight citrus fruitiness. Finishes sweet and a little warm.
