Pours a ruby red and copper with a thin, half-inch head that quickly dissipates. What’s left over clings to the glass and leaves a nice lacing - a trait I find in most all Founder’s beers.

Poking my nose into this one I get a lot of sweet hops - most apricot and apple as well as caramel malt. Fairly big and alcoholic in the nose. Funny, but the hop bitterness is just missing from this beer - especially given it’s reputation and high IBUs. It’s sweet and cloying - not in a completely bad way, but not what you would expect. Definitely big on the sugary malts.

Alcoholic and somewhat astringent - not what I would classify as a IIPA or barleywine by any stretch. Definitely an interesting beer, but not one I will go out of my way for again.
