Enjoyed a glass of this this evening from a 22 ounce bottle purchased at Party Town in Florence, KY.
Appearance after pour is an orange-ish golden hue. Carbonation seems somewhat limited, but still adequate.
Smell: The strong caramel flavors and sweetish notes of this Imperial Double IPA hint at the flavors found in a typical barleywine.
Taste: Here is where the beer makes its biggest show. At a cold crisp, the flavors of apple and grapefruit with just a tinge of pleasant sour at the end. With 22-ounce beers, I like to let the bottle sit out and re-engage the beer as it warms to room temperature over time to see how the notes change. As the temperature adjusts, the beer takes a slightly milder, less fruity tone.
Mouthfeel: If you can't readily see much carbonation, you can still taste it very clearly. Mouthfeel becomes smoother over time.
Serving type: bottle

Sampled on tap at the Upland pub in Bloomington, IN on a bright, sunny Spring afternoon.
Rich amber in color, poured into an Upland goblet. Lace present but minimal.
Lovely floral citrus aroma.
Taste is strong, and heavy on the bitter side but enjoyable. Notes of pine and citrus are most prominent. Very enjoyable, and although this is a heavy beer, I find it tastier than the regular Dragonfly IPA. Solid.
Serving type: on-tap
