Draught at Faucets. Pretty, glowing deep orange with a low head. Big, grassy, earthy hop aroma with solid cereals and chocolate malts. Light citrus. Nice caramel flavor, stewed dark fruits n the back, grass, hay, and big piney resins. Quite bitter but balanced. Excellent.

Opaque / cloudy golden amber body with much sediment and slight head, no retention. Very floral hops with honey, citrus and some funk to the nose. Weird funk, almost.... nah. Flavor is sharp and bitter at first, then becomes mild as it lingers in the mouth. It has a slightly astringent quality, but the sweet malts counter the effect. Nice, smooth, even mouthfeel. No volcano. rejtable (2809) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
Love this! Pours cloudy orange with limited head and lacing. Nose is earthy. Aromas are resin, grassy hops, some sweet malt backing and a massive fruity bouquet through the middle. Love this. Tastes are medium sweet and a medium bitter finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. Not a big hop bomb, but regardless it tastes great! thorongil2 (3259) - , Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
(bottle) hazy copper colour with a small off white head; aromas of grapefruit, fruit, honey; balanced flavour with a long strong bitter finish; excellent blankboy (7735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle [500ml]. Pours golden-orange with a small semi-lasting off-white head. Lovely aroma of resiny, citrusy hops along with some alcohol and juicy fruit.
Flavour is just as good, with lots and lots of hops along with fruit and malt in the back and just a hint of alcohol. Nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. Like others said, it’s closer to a Barley Wine then an IPA, but whatever it is its delicious.

Pours a hazy orange-copper with a thicker eggshell cap. Nose involves sweet barley, some pit fruit, light pine resin, and candied citrus. Taste is largely sweet but quite bitter also. Heavier bodied, tingly, a touch sticky, with a fairly lengthy bitter finish. Not sure how fresh it was, but it came across as a barleywine/IIPA hybrid with many of the heavy malt characteristics of barleywine styles. A really intense, big beer that was very enjoyable. pentaz (1264) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle. Pour is clear light amber brown with a average frothy mostly lasting and some lacing off white head. Aroma is caramel, candy, citrus, grapefruit.
Taste is almost heavy sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium+, texture is oily and creamy, carbonation is average. Finishes very sweet with a grapefuity hop-bite. Could use more aroma-hops. SlackerMads (3436) - DENMARK - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle shared with pentaz. Clear light copper with small staying off white head. Aroma is caramel, butterscotch, light citrus and pine. Taste is sweet with caramel, butterscotch. Finish is long and bitter. Dominated by caramel malt, could use a stronger hop profile for my taste, but still nice. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. solidfunk (9206) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Smells very rich in fruity hops. Pours cloudy orange with good head between creamy and foamy. Decent lacing. Taste is very bitter from hops and the booze is hard to detect. A little malt in the aroma as well. Bottle. mczee (21) - NORWAY - JAN 5, 2013
