Idiosynkrasie (7311) - Bielefeld, - NOV 16, 2012
330ml bottle. Sligtly cloudy, orangey golden to amber colour with average, firm, frothy, moderately lacing, off-white head. Fruity aroma has notes of passion fruit, peach, tangerine and lime, grassy, bitter hoppy overtones. Taste is bitter hoppy with fruity notes of orange; sadly an unpleasant bitter almond notes flashes up in between, presumably in combination with the the warming and biting alcohol; lasting and slightly biting bitter hoppy may be influenced by the high abv also.

Pour was hazy orange, short of cloudy, thin to no head. Aroma of booze, caramel, resin, honey. Flavors followed with additional elements of citrus, tea bags and toffee. Mouthfeel a bit sticky and hot.

Pours orange with an off-white head. Aroma is strong hoppy fruity, berries, candy sugar and sweet caramel. Taste is boozy, lots of massive fruity sweet hops, paired with alcohol. Finish has fruits, alcohol and a perfumey note.

daje (4334) - NORWAY - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle, april 2nd 2016. Clear light brown body with a thin white head. Aroma is boozy with honey and piney hops. Taste is toasted with strong bitterness, grapefruit and lots of caramel. Quite boozy finish, with a dry bitter hop aftertaste. While it has the hop characteristics of an ipa in my opinion at 14% this is more resembling of a barley wine. Who cares about styles though, an alright beer it is.

metalhead0043 (207) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2015
12 oz from Triangle Wine for 5 bucks. Pours a deep, hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is huge caramel, citrus and pine hops. Reminds me a lot of a barleywine, as others have mentioned. Taste is very piney and syrupy, some caramel malts with a strong alcohol burn on the end. Heavy, thick body for the style. Overall this one is more of a barleywine than a double IPA, but is still a fine beer nonetheless. Too bad its retired as of this review.

Cimbasso (886) - - AUG 30, 2015
Dark orange colour with a beige head. Rich aromas and a taste which is sweet, but very complex with notes of candied fruit, tangerine, pineapple, resin and leather. The alcoholic strength is surprisingly well hidden but is definitely there! A lovely, well-made beer, close to a barley wine in style. A really great Imperial IPA which can be savoured with great pleasure.

bytemesis (8109) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Yop, shared by Brian. This bad boy is a Barleywine, no doubt. Pours very hazy dark hazel, small beige head, some lacing. Aroma is sticky caramel and pine and booze. Flavor is very sweet, lots of sugars and pine, medium bitter with a boozy bite. Medium body, quite hot and alcoholic. Not my favorite.

jjgmd (2125) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2015
With Z , July 4th evening, pours a clear light rusty gold color with an ephemeral beige head. Nose has champagne notes with alcohol and hops. Taste is bitter sweet with strong alcohol and hard resin and pine notes, and well balanced... enough to taste some caramel, toffee and malt. Finish is bitter sweet, with the bitterness accentuated along with the alcohol, ending is dry and long. Quaff Score 7 / 10
