Huge malty, alcohol forward nose - powerful and rich. Beautiful golden brown color. Tastes like a tawny port in a beer bottle. For being 120 IBU and supposedly the hoppiest beer in the world, it isn't really that hoppy. The high alcohol really rounds it out and brings more oaky, malty flavors. I did age it for about six months, so perhaps that toned down the sharpness a bit (although when I first had it on tap, I noticed the same thing). Maybe next time I'll try one fresh. An outstanding drink - however you want to classify it.
(bottle) clear, bright orange amber colour with a small white head; aroma of stewed fruit, jam, dried longan; rich, intense boozy flavour with a long, light bitter finish, excellent DavidWoodruff (600) - Windsor, California, USA - JUN 19, 2017
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. Donít know if I blame him or not but thought Iíd 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. snoot8726 (98) - Terre Haute, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2017 Bottle into snifter. Pours a deep amber with a white head. Notes of floral hops and booze on the nose. Same on the palate with a bit of caramel. Nice slight booze burn on the finish. Great brew but not worth the price tag. hman43 (1540) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Golden in appearance with a white head. Strong alcohol flavors but only slightly hot. justicemaguire (4) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2017 does not count
Drank at home from a bottle. Just a rock solid IPA with a malty backbone. Nice fruity aroma. VinegarStroke (420) - Napa, California, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle: just because you can do something doesnít mean itís right. Deep copper color, good head and lace. The aromas are dominated by a slow or stuck ferment. The palate is sweet and hot. Itís probably has a high VA.
Folks talk about hops, I donít know how you see them with all the malt, alcohol and slow ferment profile.
Intense flavor but no balance. A very poor beer.
