Pours a nice, ruddy, clear mix of brown, red, and caramel. The smell is very malty, and has a nose almost like a barleywine. It has a massive alcohol hit, and it's so smooth that it invites you to pound it, even though you know it's going to kick your ass. It says it's an IPA, but there's so much malt to get it to 12% that it totally dominates the hops. You don't get a bourbon -style alcohol burn, but it lets you know that it's a high ABV beer. It there going down, and if you swallow some air along with it, that alcohol gives a reminder on the way back up. This is not a summertime IPA (unless you plan on being unconscious as your summertime hobby). The depth of flavor allows it to pair with a lot of different foods.
