DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours a deep amber with a big, white head that dissipates slowly into a cap and leaves great lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, molasses, butterscotch, and caramel. Really big sweetness is first present, but those 114 IBUs hit you hard at the end, leaving behind a bold citrus hop finish. This is a big, bold beer, not for the weak.

On tap at Howells and Hood. Pours an almost clear amber color with small off-white head and little lacing. Aroma has pine resin, citrus, and honey. Taste is initially bitter with a dry finish, but the honey and caramel malts in the middle are so noticeable that I would call this one malt-forward. Body is medium with soft carbonation and a sticky syrupy mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden.

Very strong beer!! This is a great beer to sip with a good Connecticut cigar. You can definitely taste the fermented honey in this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2017 Botella 33 cl en el Kraken 18..11..2017. (r193). Lote y fcpref ilegibles en etiqueta. Color ámbar miel turbio con espuma blanca persistente. Sabores dulces intensos maltosos y cereales con suaves toques melosos y melaza. Suaves afrutados y poco amargo. Cuerpo medio a intenso con buena sensación alcohólica desde el principio. Denso y espumoso. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda.

Delicadamente equilibrada. Una gozada para nariz y paladar que nos lleva de caramelo, miel y vainilla a cítricos, resinosos y herbales. Compleja, plena y a la vez delicada. Muy guay!

kaserov (1097) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 11, 2017
Color ámbar, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de tres dedos de grosor (muy buena retención). Carbonatación media visualmente. Textura oleosa (parece que va a tener más cuerpo pero no). Aroma a caramelo, resina, pino, miel, vainilla, cítricos. En boca entra dulce, con mucha malta caramelizada, miel, pino, vainilla, anís suave, cítricos. Verdaderamente impactante en boca, pero a la vez sutil. Amargor final resinoso no demasiado elevado pero presente. Resina y mermelada en boca entre trago y trago. Cuidado, si te gustan este tipo de DIPAs, se bebe sola.

On tap at the brewpub. Initial aroma said "this is going to be too bitter for you to like". However, I plowed ahead and was pleasantly rewarded with an IPA that was fairly well balanced. The sugar really cuts through the hops without overwhelming them. However, the fact that they are there doesn’t make this beer come off as TOO sweet. It’s really pretty good.

At Howells and Hood. In a snifter. Pours caramel brown with no head. Big malty brown sugar hop taste of a double IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

justkoehn (173) - Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Poured into pint glass. Little head and lacing. Rich deep brown color. Raisin aroma. Sits lightly on the tongue for imperial IPA. Dried fruity flavor up front that packs a punch to finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
