3.3/5 rDev -9.6%
A: Deep amber color, translucent, not completely filtered. Easily pours a 1" head in a tulip glass. Head laces glass for the duration of the drink.
S: Booze. Smells just like an Olde English 800. There are aroma hops, but just not a lot of them, and they're overwhelmed by the "cheap malt liquor" smell.
T: If Olde English made an IPML, this is what I think it would taste like. Overwhelming malt flavor, underwhelming hop profile. Alcohol is too prevalent--it should be masked, or at least matched, by an ample amount of hops and better malts.
M: Good carbonation. Flavors linger for a long time. The cheap maltiness goes away soon, and the bitterness sticks around for a long time.
O: It's just too similar to a cheap malt liquor for me to drink this one again. I don't know what malts were used in the making of this beer, but they need to use your standard crystal varieties, and not whatever is in this thing.

Tastes better than it smells for sure.Slightly bitter at the end and also a bit too sweet to follow.All in all not bad.I enjoy the darker colored IPAs.Lacing is a bit weak also.Taste is good though to be paired with some fish tacos.3.5 out of 5 stars in my opinion.Nothing fancy but not terrible.I think the rating should be higher than 83.Possible 88-89 score.

Color- color cloudy peachy. Medium head.
Aroma- candied tangerine.
Taste- Starts like a barley wine, very sweet and strong, then finishes with an intense tangerine peel tartness. I'm not a fan of this one.
Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 12/31/12.

Pours a finger of head on a clear dark straw colored body.
The aroma is floral, barnyardish and ripe grapefruit and apricot.
The taste heavy on the malt but the sweetness is contained by the lemon and pine bitterness. Good balance.
The texture is thick with moderate carbonation.
It's a big malty IPA.

As a fan of IPA beers I like tasting all kinds of different ones, this one wasent bad going down but then came the nastyness... The after taste is like cough medicine, it's the type of beer that you have to drink holding your breath and chugging it in order to be able to keep it down. If you're a fan of this beer then good for you, all I'm saying is that I was not a fan and will never buy it again.
