UPDATED: OCT 10, 2014 On tap from a growler tapped today cloud gold with a thick white head.
Aroma is sweet pine trees.
Flavor is divine. A caramel dipped evergreen.
An extreme brew done exceptionally from CBC. DoublEE (781) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2012
This was described as a Double IPA/Blonde Barleywine. Really big juicy and hoppy beer. Definitely gets most of its flavor from hops but there is a really nice big bready backbone. Really great crossover style beer and very drinkable with no trace of alcohol for 10%. It does creep up on you Shot (573) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a massive sticky head. Aroma of abundant fresh piney hops and citrus.Flavors are citrus, stone fruit, pine needles, fresh bread. Dry, piney finish. Wonderfully clean mouthfeel. This is an unbelievable imperial IPA. zimm421 (63) - Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Fresh growler from The Daily Growler. Pours a gray orange color with perfect head and lacing. This is described as a double IPA by the brewery, not a barleywine. Nose is piney, with citrus, and some malts. Taste is very similar, finishes nice and biter, but doesn?t overdo it. This is very impressive, wish it would come around more often! bluejacket74 (1996) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2013
32 ounce growler picked up from Blacklick Wine and Spirits earlier today. They just tapped the keg yesterday so I assume this is a fresh batch. Served in a Dogfish Head IPA glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a couple inch white head. The head sticks around for a long time, and there’s also a lot of lacing. Aroma is very nice, the brew mostly smells like citrusy (tropical fruit, grapefruit, orange peel) and pine hops, and some bready malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some peppery spice and herbalness. The tropical fruit bittersweet finish lingers for a very long time. It’s creamy and slick with a good amount of carbonation. Well, I’m very happy I picked up a growler of this on the way home from work. Definitely worth trying if you come across some! $10.99 a growler fill.

(Bottled on 3/27/17) Pours a clear light straw, with a dusting of white head. The aroma is a mosh pit of hops, grapefruit, tropical fruit, and dank notes all come forward in it. The hop flavor cares through with the beer, there’s just barely enough malt to support the massive hop bill. Lot’s of heavy dank bitter notes, leaving a long lingering bitter finish. The mouthfeel is full, with a slick note to it. This is a classic example of an American IIPA.
