12 ounce bottle pours a golden orange color with minimal head. Pine and resinous aroma with some sweet smell also. Seems extremely bitter just for the sake of being bitter. Very harsh aftertaste. Unpleasant. edgallow (4362) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2014
12 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and sweet malts. Taste is caramel, citrus and some spice.

bottle. clear, amber pour with thin lasting head. big boozy, hop aroma. big body, big in malt and hops. oily, sugary, bitter finish. WVHouseofBeer (1081) - West Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2014
For having 144 IBUs this actually wasn’t as much of a hop bomb as I was expecting; I guess the wine barrel aging takes away some of the bitterness? The flavors and aromas are nice and citrusy but a little one dimensional. Not much malt presence to balance the hop bitterness. Overall though this was pretty good, however. vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle at Disney Hollywood Studios. Orange amber pour with tan head. Light hops and some malt like aromas, flavors follow was really hoping for a richer, fresher hop tones.

Bottle at California adventure. Pours a dark orange. Thick white head. Scent of hops, some citrus. Taste is a nice floral hop. Strong hop flavor lingers for a while. Good beer. gerbewa (253) - - JAN 28, 2014
Had this at Epcot center in Disney world. Good hop aroma, piney grassy aroma and taste. Not enough bit but overall a good IPA. Busick (390) - Lake Wylie, South Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Pours a golden to dark yellow. Aroma is of lots and lots of hops! Taste is a smooth IPA, not an imperial IPA!

Pours a dark copper with creamy white head. Malty, sweet, caramel aroma with little hop character. Taste is malt forward and sweet then mixed with grassy, piney, floral hop character. Bitterness mid palate and finishes with slight hop bitterness that lingers but isn't harsh. Well balanced and hides the 9% well. Loses points for nonexistent hop aroma and slightly too sweet. Overall, decent IIPA and would drink again.

22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy dark orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, caramel malts, and residual sugars. Flavour brings out resinous hops, caramel, and residual sugars - only a slight wine barrel quality to this. The 144 IBUs isn’t that revealing, as the barrels take away some of the barrels. Quite well-balanced, with the wine barrel aging taking away any residual sweetness, but also taking away much of the bitterness. Solid stuff.
