AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Porcelainbomb (reddit trader). Pours dark orange and gold with zero carbonation. Aromas are sweet sugary goodness, apricot, caramel and soap. Flavors are big sweet candy, then alcohol both burn and flavor, then something that tastes akin to carrot juice and finally some intense hop bitterness. Palate is very heavy in weight but a little thin and hot, it would benefit from some carbonation. Overall, this is a good beer though it is hard to wrap my head around all the flavors and feelings this is trying to convey to the drinker; it is a little too broad in flavor which causes it to become muddled. Still above average due to its scope and the fact that not many brewers would take this kind of a chance.

Pomiędzy Triplem a utlenionym na miodowo IIPA. Całkiem spora goryczka, sporo miłej, owocowo-przyprawowej słodyczy. Fajne.

josanguapo (1441) - SPAIN - MAR 18, 2017
From Mikkeller Shop. In Teku glass. Batch 96. Playing Shantae Pirates Curse. Pretty alcoholic and sweet. However, its not unpleasant but just the opposite thanks to a good usage of candi sugar and hops. Sticky and oily

Butelka, bottlesharing w Piwotece. Taka wypadkowa DIPA i BW. Sporo chmielu, ale też przyjemnie słodkie i gładkie. Fajne.

mariuspoenari (2090) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2017
Sampled at ACBF 2017, Vichte. Clear golden pour with a thin fine-grained off-white head. Notes of citrus hops, bitter hops, dried fruit, caramel, soft alcohol. Feels more like a triple IPA than a barleywine, but I am not complaining!
