Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a wonderfully built tight creamy head. Aroma is mixed with malts, sugars, and hops. Full aromas both sticky malt and vineous piney malts. Lots of aroma activity and ballance. Imeadietly impressed with the mix of flavor. Really full matlyness, not too sweet, but inviting. A bit of a biscut and tea character and noticable fruity citrus hops and a round alcohol finish. More fruityness in the form of strawberry flavor. Finishes meduim bodied with flavors mentioned earlier and a warming alcohol. Thanks to Kevin for including this as a bonus.

Copper, cloudy appearance with thin bubbly lacing head. Aroma is hoppy and caramel. Flavor is malt, hop, citrus, floral. Smooth creamy palate with hoppy burp finish.

750-ml. all to myself, bottled Sept. 2004, No. 8657 and 9% ABV, for those of you who give a damn.

Translucent amber-orange in color with a dusty, oily, grey flecked head. Consecutive pours would usually yield a foamy, orange tinted head and thick rungs for lacing. Aroma is hot dogging it with mango and grapefruit abrasions, some greasy potato chip bags, hints of alcohol content and some freesia and rose blossoms to provide touches of floral lightening. Decadent oily residue seeps in to welcome us to the flavor department. Thick orange, papaya and starfruit provide a citric shine, yet theres no plateau or break of alpha absurdities (might be the nature of its age, but it lends itself to being one of the best balanced double pale ales that Ive ever had.) No dactylic alcohol whatsoever. Nectarine cream melding with vanilla-orange caramel/toffee nips. Oily, thick, chewy and massive substance on the palate. Hefty malt bill with controlled carbonation and a sonorous, balanced motif that reminds me of Goose Islands latest batch of the Imperial IPA. Finish winds down in like fashion, pulling on orange dream and hints of papaya enzyme. Subtle force and complexity, and a sheer delight to drink. I dont think this one could have been any better than when I had it in its present state.

I shared one of these with Zeswaft a while back, I just remember that it was really citusy and didnt hide the alcohol at all.

Have had this in the cellar for well over a year. I expected this beer to lack some of its great hoppiness it had when I had a fresh bottl. However, the aroma certainly indicated that the hoppiness did not diminish. Unfortunately, while it smelled very hoppy, it sure didnt taste very hoppy, at all. The head was great for a year old; it lasted forever and had excellent lacing. While the aroma was much hoppier than malty, the taste was the exact opposite. There was still some hops left and the alcohol had lessened quite a bit.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2007 Bottle 3353. Hop aroma of grapefruit, lemon, grass, and malt. Aroma is pretty subdued for the style. Pours murky amber with floaties. Nice frothy white head with some lacing. Initial flavor in dominated by citrus hops, and the caramel sweetness comes out as it works its way down. The earthy, grassy, resiny finish lingers nicely. One of flying dogs better brews. Charging $11.99 for 750ml is a tad high for my budget.

Very hoppy and sweet. Full bodied barley wine, to me. A bit too sweet in the long run and quite bitter for a barley wine. Demanding. Red fruits and grape seeds in aftertaste.

thedm (6051) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2005
This bottled brew corked and caged while brewed on 9/4 as a limited edition bottling and marked 3518 thusly poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained unnoted carbonation, was transparent with hazy yeast floaties and unnoted in color. Its aroma contained notes of brown malt hoppy musty but different. Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a very tingly palate and a aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild floral dirt caramel hoppy doughy notes and was very different.

aroma is overpowering and it promises piney hops. It delivers but the flavor is too piney and very balanced. this gets a few extra points for 10.5% But this is a poor example of its style.

Pour was amber with immediate nose of hops, all kinds. I got grapefruit, grass, lemon, spruce and pine. Good lacing from the off white head. This was a chew and sticky PA, lots of bittering from the multitudes of hops. Good sweet pucker finish.
