POurs dark amber with tan head.
Aroma is loaded with caramel and light traces of hops.
Taste, thick mouthfeel, superior malty presence all to the way to the finish, adding for some sugary notes. Light hops, very smooth and grainy. This is 13% and really didi not feel like it. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Thanks retorp for the share. Pours a caramel brown with a white head. Nose is strongly caramel and pine. The flavor is horrendously sweet malt, lots of caramel sweetness, and love blended together to make a unique beer. Very noticeable alcohol presence; not sessionable at all. This beer is on up with some of the best Triple IPA’s I have had. 3Faveryrogue (181) - Aslip, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Found out that this has been @ kenwood for a long time before I had purchased and was wondering where the 200+ IBUs were: Murky brown pour with first impression of a barleywine. Lots of caramel, pine, hops and malt. Not the punch in the palate I was expecting from the hops, but they are a reasonable bitter. Alcohol works its way down the chest. Decent, but want some fresh.

This one is amber colored without much head. Just a touch. Loads of pine and grapefruit. Strong caramel malt backbone. Strong alcohol presence in the nose and taste. A huge beer that’s fun to drink but maybe not a little too boozy to be great. lebshiff21 (174) - Skippack, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Sort of a weird pour. Very cloudy. Lots of caramel in the nose. Lots of thick hops across the palate. Very enjoyable shared with friends. Very thick. Great interpretation.

Cloudy deep amber with metdium beige head. Sweet aroma with plent y of hops, grapefruit pand piney notes. Flavour is dry with loads hops, grapefruit and piney notes. serious bitter finishs. Lovely! bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours cloudy copper with a lacy pale yellow head. Some citrus and a lot of caramel in the nose. The aroma is almost chewy. Full, syrupy body with moderate carbonation. The taste is hop-flavored candy: starts off sweet, then a full palate of hops powers through with fruit, earth, grapefruit and pine for a long finish. And 13% ABV??? Oh, my goodness... there is really no way to tell. That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Crushed with Jakebra. Chewy-er than the dude in Star Wars. Another brew from Founders that resembles chewing on a hop, except this one has a sweet finish after about 15 minutes. The roof of my mouth is burning. Alcohol is hidden and converts to euphoria later on. MiP (15943) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle, 13%. Spicy hop aroma. Cloudy dark orange colour. The flavour starts off quite hoppy, grassy and grapey aroma hops. Turns quite sweet, almost syrupy. The bitterness is distinct, slightly rough. yespr (46530) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy deep orange to amber with a fully gone head. Dense pinewood hoppy aroma. Solid sweet malty at first but with a very intense dark hoppy flavour following. Quite dominant and almost overempowering. Solid roasted caramel malt for base providing some decent counter balance to this.
