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
