2012 Pours orange with a slight haze, small head, honey, maple, brown sugar, piney hopes in the nose. Taste is overwhelming sweet malt and honey with a ton of hops present early and in the long lasting pleasant warm finish. Booze definitely evident in the finish but not near as boozy as one would think given 18% abv. Mouthfeel also is not as thick as you would think. Have a feeling this would simply be a barley wine if aged - I like this with the dry hop presence. Becomes much more enjoyable as you get through the bottle but may be secondary to the buzz! A great beer even while young.
Draft at Rogue. Aroma of caramel, booze and bitter citric hop. Taste has sweet caramel, booze, pine, glue and bitter hop. Expected more from this, it’s way too boozy. beerplace (1702) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2017
355ml bottle from Elizabeth Station shared with George on Greenpoint campground. Slightly hazy golden with a tan head. Aroma is slightly bready, candied citruses. Taste is similar, very boozy. Quite good. rboozer (7) - - JUL 15, 2017 does not count

Hazy dark orange with thin off white head. Orange, malt aroma. Sweet, boozy bittersweet flavors. Big, thick, juicy body. Long malty, bitter finish. Heaven on steroids. BadgerBucky (1) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2017 does not count

Had to rate because of all the FB ranting about it and in bev. Sam wants it pulled. Don’t know if I blame him or not but thought I’d get a rating in. Dark copper penny color and incredible hop aroma. Thick and kind of sweet it only downside, alcohol well hidden. Really good and really expensive.
