Appearance: served on tap at Capones in Norristown PA. A Crimson red color, beautiful look in a 6 ounce snifter, with ivory head and nice light lacing.
Smell: A warm hop liquor aroma. Malts yes but not very sweet. It is biter and it doesn't back down on the alcohol. I like it but it could easily be perceived as intimidating on both counts, Hop and Alcohol.
Taste: It looks good it smells good but it really needs some age to become a decent mellow light barley wine. Double IPA. WOW. I don't know. At some point you just get too hot to be an IPA. Still it is tasty.
Mouthfeel: It starts with a nice some malt body giving it a smooth medium feel. As it harms more and more the booze comes out and the hotness makes the malts disappear a bit and gives a thinning impression at the end. Not bad though.
Drinkability: This is a one and done beer for me. It is a monster. An enjoyable one for a small serving but it is certainly a sipper.
Hope this is helpful.
Serving type: on-tap

3.84/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. It is an amber copper color with good clarity and vision of slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Floral, grassy, pungent, citrus, onion, garlic, booze, and caramel.
Taste: Same as above. Burning tingly boozy sensation going down. Even after warming up, it's still the same.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, tingly bitterness, and real boozy. It's definitely a sipper.
Overall: It's been a while, but still tasty. Should have held on to this one a bit longer.
Serving type: bottle
