Bought a bottle of this at Middle Ages, Bubbles the brewery cat helped pick it out. No, not really...
Anyway, moving on- The beer is of a high quality indeed. I was very impressed. It was a dark amber colour, almost like very weak, watered-down coffee actually. Darker than I'm used to for an IPA. It had a good sized fluffy slightly off-white head that didn't last too too long. It smelled like a big hop festival, almost stinging my nose. Also it smelled a bit bready maybe actually.. yes. Tasted oh so good, the hops were very much there, but not in your face. It was as though I was drinking a buttery dinner roll along with a side of fresh green hops. No real trace of the alcohol, and I know it's definitely in there.. Very very tasty. Mouthfeel was very slippery and soft swirling about my tongue and sliding down my throat. Drinkability is high- very drinkable, but this wench of a beer would whip your ass if left alone in the room with you, so you better watch out with her.

On tap at the Dinosaur, Syracuse.
A: Heavy and dark with brown and red tints over an amber base. Nice thick head.
S: Thick malty deliciousness with a lot of smokey aromas.
T: Roasted malt and caramel followed by scotchlike smokiness and hops. Lacks any significant fruity or citrusy notes but is full bodied and hearty. A very good beer to start your meal.
M: Thick but crisp and hoppy on the nose. Quite drinkable with a high but not overpowering ABV of 8.0%.
O: Delicious and thick, rich and colorful. Great beer.

Dark reddish amber pour, thick finger of tan head, crazy wallpaper lace. Fades to an island and ring pretty quick with the lace dripping oily legs. Nice.
Lemony citrus and caramel, hints of herbal bitter in a light/medium strength aroma.
Simple taste just like the nose, but with some spicy alcohol in there too. Light strength taste, simple and balanced. A little different bitter in the end of sip than I am used to tasting. Kinda nice, but not great.
Worst feature of this beer. Low carb., low viscosity, ho hum finish, and not the cleanest linger either.
Thought this would be a better beer than it is, still not horrible, and one that is sure to taste good with some morels and bacon grilled cheese.
