12 oz bottle, IPA tasting
This bottle had been aged a year or more.
Murky dark apple cider-colored brew, fine bubbles, nice lacing.

Definite orange peel on the nose, with herabal, grassy notes, rosemary.

Sweetness p front, the malt has taken the forefront as the brighthop flavors have mellowed with aging. An orange soda effect, caramel, alcohol is apparent.

This brew has aged wel, into something other than a DIPA hop bomb, very nice.

12oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Big thanks to jbck109 for the trade.

A: Pours an unexpectedly very dark caramel color with a couple finger of dark tan head that quickly faded into a thick oily film that left a few streaks and spots of lacing down the glass.
S: Big boozy dark caramel and hop notes with an overall roasted character. This smells like a barleywine with big notes of hop resin and sweet malt.
T: Pow! Big in-your-flavors of warm boozey sweet caramel, crackery bread crust, and grahm crackers hit your palate first followed by oily, resiny hops, bitter grapefruit, tree sap, and orange peel. Finish has notes of tobacco, and the aftertaste is full of a sticky sweetness that lingers long after the swallow.
M: Full bodied with a sticky, viscous mouthfeel. Carbonation is frothy and helps the thick body down the throat. Alcohol is present and leaves the back of your throat and gullet warm and fuzzy. However, for such a high ABV, this drinks exceptionally well.
D: I love the flavors in this beer, and it's not quit a chore to drink, but there's no way I'd want to have a bottle of this every day. As far as a DIPA goes, it's closer to hopped-up barleywine. Glad I got to try this. Thanks again Jay!

Dark amber with a touch of off white head.

Smells of intense sweet malt and some faded hops.

Tastes of... the same. Lots of sweet malt and some confused hops in the background.

Mouthfeel is thick with low carbonation.

Super underwhelming beer... not a big fan.

Draft. Poured from a fresh, brand new tap line. Pours a slightly hazed orange amber color with a wispy white coastered head. Malty sweet smelling with a touch of citrus rind hop aroma. The taste is slightly unbalanced in terms of malt vs hops and I wish it had a more hoppy bite. Not a bad ipa but not the best either.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a duvel tulip glass.

A - Nice amber in color with about a quarter inch head, a bit surprising as usually these type of higher alcohol beers pour very flat.

S - Very pleasant, almost wet-hop like aroma. A bit of alcohol, but not overpowering like some higher-alcohol brews. Definitely smells like an IIPA, though some argue this beer is more like a barleywine.

T - Very balanced for the high alcohol and amount of hops. Beers like this have the potential to be really out of whack in terms of flavor, and this one is not. As hoppy as this beer tastes, the malt backbone provides a nice compliment, giving it a very carmally, rich flavor. I think the maltiness is what has people confusing this with a barleywine.

M - Thick, chewy, and warming due to the alcohol content.

D - About as good as it gets for a beer right around 12% alcohol. I've had beers in the 8-9% range that don't hide the booze this well. I'd say the only real spoiler is the nose, where you get a bit of a tabasco-like aroma (similar, but not nearly as strong as DFH 120 minute)

Overall, I love this beer. As with most beers in this category (DFH 120 minute, Founders Devil Dancer, etc.) this really blurs the line between IIPA/barleywine, though I'd argue this is the most accessible of the bunch, not only for newer people to the style, but those who are turned off by highly-hopped/high alcohol beers. I'd also add that this is really drinkable fresh, unlike 120 minute which to me is a big overpowering mess. Well worth the $15/4-pack which I paid.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into pint glass. Hazy orange-brown. Real rich lookin'. Creamy one finger head settled down quickly with decent lacing along sides.

Very flowery, aromatic hoppy blast up your nose when you take a whiff. Citrusy, resiny. Sweet malt smell.

There is a very well-balanced blend of bitterness and sweetness. Very pleasant resininess to the taste. Finishes with a super-fresh taste of hops. I don't get an overwhelming taste of booziness.

Mouthfeel is fantastic. Full and rich.

This beer pairs well with High on Fire radio, on last.fm.

3.68/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Note: The notes I have on this pour say: 13.6% ABV and 90 IBU, (not 12% ABV).

Appearance: Pretty, dark coppery amber with a finger of off white head.

Smell: Big tropical, oranges, and resinous pine hop, grapfruit rinds along with malty goodness and a bit of alcohol. Very nice and inviting.

Taste: The hops show up immediately with a big hit of grapefruit rind and light grassy notes, there is sweetness, caramel and roasted malt. A bitter-sweetness emerges in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth somewhat syrupy and medium bodied.

Drinkability: The bitter-sweet character that emerges along with the high ABV limit my consumption. If you get it in a bottle, it may age well.

Deep hazy amber-brown beer. Thin white head. Big juicy hop aroma, grapefruit, brown sugar/toffee and a touch of light oak as well. Flavor is really much more barleywine than IIPA. Toasty rich malts, a bit of dark fruit and sweet caramel maltiness. Moderate bitterness with a fresh grapefruity/orange citrus component. Lingering sweetness. Heavy duty.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle, consumed from my 3Floyds glass.

A- Light tannish head, 1 finger. A rich murky amber color. Pretty dark for a DIPA, and very cloudy

S- Very nice nosefull of hops/malt/sweetness. Touches of pine and citrus as well.

T- This one is smooth and malty, the hops have faded quite a bit. I had a fresh one, and it was much hoppier. This has lost it's initial hoppy bite, but still has the hoppy aftertaste. Like the smell, has a piney/citrusy flavor, with a heavy malt backbone.

M- Very nice and big. Very complex and dances across my tongue. Has a very bold hoppy aftertaste.

D- Very strong, and hits you a little hard. The beer doesn't taste boozy, but is just a big beer.

Great big DIPA. Definetely has faded a bit since fresh, but is still delicious. Can really only drink 1-2 due to the ABV

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The beer is a medium brown color with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass. The aroma is of hops, caramel, brown sugar, some citrus and a touch of alcohol. The taste starts out sweet with flavors of brown sugar, caramel and bourbon, then the hops flavor comes in, but it's no where near as strong as you would expect. Then there's a slight alcohol burn, but it's quite tame for a beer with 13.60% ABV. The malt character seems on the thin side despite the sweetness. The after-taste is bitter sweet. Crisp and very smooth, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, slightly sticky finish.

BA says that this one is 12%, but the bottle says that it is 13.6%. Either way, this one is a sobriety disturber!

Poured this straight down the middle.

A: Looks like a melted caramel gold with about an inch worth of head. Jeez... Carbonation is hidden under the brown golden funk.

S: Smells like a typical DIPA. Grapefruit, sugar, citrus, etc. Smells like ultra fresh pine.

T: Not boozy at all. Very malty, with a strong caramel backbone and hops and citrus to spare.

M: One might think based on ABV that this might be syrupy... nope. I actually find this one pretty well balanced for a brew this size.

D: Yep....this is a reserve type beer alright. If you drink more than one of these things, you'll be running around your neighborhood naked.

Overall, this is a nice DIPA, and one of the highest ABV 12ozers I've had in a long time.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Looks quite dark. Almost brown.

Smell was huge. Lots of hops on the nose but also some sweetness.

Tastes very nice but some sort of small taste I can't distuish at the finish.

Because of the aftertaste I gave it a lower rating on drinkability but overall a very nice beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Bottle is a few months old but it says it "ages well" and I remember it fairly well fresh.

A- Chunky dark orange with a creamy off-white cap that has good retention. Good coat of fine, milky lace from the frothy ring.

S- Still pretty damn hop-centric. Lots of fruit and citrus, would have expected them to fade a lot more by now. Caramel malt is much more present this time around, a few months age on it. No alcohol, lots of hops like Maharaja and Devil Dancer.

T- Reminiscent of Hop Dam and Devil Dancer, a beastly hop bomb. The hop flavor is the strange tropical sweet fruit one and the general overly hopped pine-earthy aspect. Pretty crazy that this is 13.5%. Caramel malt slowly gains ground with each sip.

MF- May not be alcohol in the flavor but this thing is damn hot, burns my throat like Nemesis 2010. Pretty bitter but supported by the malt and hop flavor. Body itself is moderately creamy and has smooth, high-end carbonation.

DB- A nice beer but it is still a bit too hoppy even for me, I don't say that often (Hop Dam, Devil Dancer). There is a point where hops just taste like hops and not complex fruity, piney flavors. It wears you down, I cannot review another one after this, beast-mode of ales. It has aged fine, it probably has enough hops for about 10 years.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Hazy, opaque, deep amber/orange. Milky, off-white head; minimal and short

Smell is malty sweet, with an intense, yet subtly muted hop aroma. Very citrus-y, piny, floral, and woodsy. It has a nice mix of several hop aromas, forming an enticing cluster-fuck of goodness. There is a hint of heat there too. My nose hairs are burning.

Sweet malts and intense bitterness clash immediately on the first sip. Hard to tell which prevails. The hops move to sweet and sour citrus, accompanied but caramel malts. There is some earthy-ness to it. And the precise finish burns a bit from that 12%.

Feel is medium in body, no carbonation.

As huge as this beer is, each sip is a breeze...delicious, smooth, and luscious. I think this is the most drinkable DIPA I've laid my lips upon.

Thanks to Zoolzoo for the trade!

Poured from a 12-oz bottle into a tulip glass.
A: Cloudy amber/honey color with no head but small delicate lacing at the leg of the glass. Very cloudy and sediment is visible in the glass. Not much carbonation.

N: Biscuity floral sweetness....very sweet honey notes with a touch of floral aspect.

T/M: Tastes like it smells; very sweet....not too much hop bitterness in the forefront, but it is noticeable in the lingering after-taste. Not a very multi-dimensional flavor, but a very good dimension. Alcohol flavor definitely is present, but in no way overwhelming. Tastes almost like a pale imperial stout (as I imagine one would); a bit dry.

I believe this bottle is a bit older (no date on the bottle). I got it on a trade in the middle of the summer and tried to drink it soon (my review is from notes), but it also may have been exposed to some "weathering" due to the cross-country journey. I would love to try this beer again on tap or fresh.

It is actually has a great flavor and has aged well, but it is not super hoppy, which is what I had gleefully anticipated. Good stuff all the same.

Visual...a lovely orange. poured straight in it did a frothy 2 finger head. A careful pour would give less. That head is settling but leaves a lot of froth on the sides.

Aroma...All good things in all good time. There's every sort of hops,something almost watermelon,a bit of raisin,a bit of sherry,there's some floral,some resin...the whole spectrum.
malt hints are caramel to toffee.

Note...5 min after finishing I took a big sniff of the empty bottle and there was still a nice aroma blast.

Flavors....Pow! Bam! A lot happening.

There's a dose of big resiny hops,and a lot of fruit notes doing sweet,sour,tangy. Sweet caramel seduces one set of taste buds and a hop kick spanks another set..but in a good way.
second pour and kind of a quick one getting more foam,but I like to get a sip of foam...sometimes it helps me "see" the flavors differently, here it does bring up the fruity tastes,some Bing cherry is there.

Here, well, there's so much action it's like a big orchestra playing Bolero. Having seen reviews I was thinking maybe I should wear a hemet and lock up the power tools,or this would be some barndywine fruitcake...but it is much more interesting than that,even if those things do factor.

The ABV? I don't get that nasty "cheap malt liquor" tastes but 1/2 bottle and I got some buzz. As it warms the sweet malts get more competitive....there's now a bit of "booze" in the flavor,but it's warm,not harsh and even adds to the grand display of the flavor package that is possible in whatever category this is in. The bright resin-fresh hop finish does say DIPA but this sucker kind of creates it's own category.

Flavor? hey,it's got enough stuff going on you could write a term paper about it.

Mouth...Here...big points a body beyond what you expect in any IPA/DIPA. The Malt bill isn't the p[rimary flavor maker but it ties things together and beefs up the mouth/texture.

Te aftertastes go on and on,with some brown sugar on the lips,some delayed bursts of woodsy evergreen hops,marijuana resins,assorted fruit playing around for a while. A Pine hops and tart Cherry finish lasts along while.

You can nurse a glass of this stuff awhile. Yeah...it costs $ but is basically 2 very nice beers crammed into one bottle.

Drinkable? ONE...is real drinkable. then maybe later do something lightweight....less LARGE.

Looking at reviews and having recently discovered Dark Horse and their amazing set of big dark brews,I really expected this to be very interesting but too over the edge...too Barleywine. Instead Dark Horse does a brew that is simply world class great. I'm a sucker for complexity and "entertainment" in a big beer. I love to see flavors dance,play harmony,have a purpose. Call it Dark IPA,Barleywine or " Oh My Gawd"...this stuff can dance.

EDIT- Now there's a "Dark Cascadian" category so great and innovative beers like this won't get slammed as too big for a DIPA. Note too....I had one today...and it was released Feb...7-8 mo,so the Malt-Hop balance does shift. Chech reviews from April + May. Also...if you WANT your double crooked to be a bit more HOPPY or to mask the alcohol....drink it a bit colder. I love it COLD...then I drink it slow and let it evolve as it warms. THIS is very very good at that . Storm King is another brew that does remarkable temperature transitions. If you WANT this to do Brandywine, let it warm.

The 12% ABV is what's on the website,and why it is sellable in Ohio. Perhaps the 2009 edition was 13.6%...this isn't

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip 09/02/10.

Pours a dark amber color and forms a very small but nicely retained khaki colored head. Small amounts of filmy lacing are left as I rotate the glass but thy don't last.

Leads off with some citrus hoppiness which is chased immediately by toffee, caramel, and alcohol. Actually stings the nostrils a little.

The slight citric hoppiness from aroma is virtually absent on the palate but there's a fair share of bitterness in there. Malt manifests itself in a big way in the form of yellow apples and caramel. Alcohol is still slightly too obvious in both the flavor and feel.

Had to step back from this beer and take a second to look at my review after I was done. As a DIPA it's pretty near a complete fail but after logging on to post my review and seeing how insanely high the ABV is and looking at my notes this is actually fairly decent as a Barleywine. No reason to judge the beer too negatively because they put the wrong label on it.

12oz. bottle given to me by an awesome dude at Ebenezer's Belgian Beer Fest. Thanks man!

Pours a cloudy dark amber with a dense one-finger head. Laces and retains well for a high-ABV brew.

Aroma has a good dose of orangey hop juiciness, woody spice and mellow alcohol.

This is a tasty and heavy DIPA. Loads of hop bitterness are equaled by a ton of rich, molasses malt. Neither too sweet nor too bitter, just incredibly hoppy. Tastes like a pine tree: very resinous. The mouthfeel is thick and oily, with smooth carbonation. Alcohol is present, but I would never guess this beer to be nearly 14 percent alcohol.

Well-crafted and insanely drinkable for the ABV.

Poured into my tulip glass from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper/amber color. It was weird, when i held the beer up tot he light, as I often do, I saw what I can only describe as section of cloud in the middle of the beer. Never see anything like that before. At first I thought maybe it was yeast sediment that hadn't settled, but it persisted to stick around after I started sipping the beer. Finally after about 10 minutes I clearly saw clumps of yeasty sediment at the bottom of my glass. Tan head is about half an inch thick when poured before quickly settling to a nice thick ring lining the inside of the glass with spotty lacing. Aromas of sweet caramel malt and citrus hops along with vanilla and some fruity aromas of grapefruit and maybe something like plums or figs. Has a great flavorful blend of sweet caramel malt, citrus hops, a bit of a peppery spice-like Ancho chili's perhaps, and is rounded with the aforementioned fruit. Certainly not as hoppy as I would have expected a double IPA to be. This one reminded me more of a spiced/herbed beer. It certainly reminded me of Theobrama, but with a noticeably bigger hop profile. I wonder if that's what they were going for with this beer or if the hops have faded as I have no idea how long this was sitting on the shelf for before I bought it. Has a nice thick, sort of chewy, crisp mouthfeel. It just coats the palate and the flavors linger long after each sip has been taken. Moderate carbonation. very easy to drink especially once it starts to warm up. I really enjoyed this and hope to have it again.

12oz into pint glass. From notes.

A- Pours more like a barleywine, a nice copper color. Great head and retention considering the ABV, textbook lacing.

S- A blast of hops and alcohol, not dissimilar to DFH's 120min IPA. Nice vanilla and caramel notes (once the alcohol burn subsides).

T- Wow. This is a flavorful beer. As with the nose, there's an all-out assault of hop oils and alcohol. This one is warming in the mouth. Hops taste very fresh, is this one dry-hopped? Caramel/molasses body comes through in the finish, not cloyingly sweet but close to it.

M- Heavy, big big beer. Good carbonation, perhaps this one would do better at 2-3% lower ABV though. Slightly syrupy.

D- Moderate. I really like the flavors here, but it might be too much. That being said, I'll buy some more of this next time it comes around. The 4pk dissapeared rather quickly.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle with a scary looking tree on the label into an oversized snifter. Pours a dark cloudy amber, almost th ecolor of peach iced tea. Minimal head presents even with a rather aggressive pour.

Has a citrusy pine hop smell, tempered with sweet malt. There's a bit of a sweet fruit background as well.

Sweet, with a pepper spice on the tongue followed by some yeastiness, there's as much malt as there is hop in this one. There's some fruitiness on the back of the tongue as it finishes. Slight bitterness on the end, but the hops, which were so prevalent in the smell, are not nearly as present in the taste. I wonder what the boil time was on this one?

Decent mouthfeel, rather smooth yet slightly astringent.

Quite drinkable, I'm enjoying this one and would gladly have another.

Based on 7/18/10 tasting:

This is good, but a bit too bitter for me. Devil Dancer would be a nice alternative. The mouthfeel is just sharp and not pleasant. You can "feel" this beer on your tongue. Maybe a bitter hophead's dream, but not mine.

Review input from notes. Enjoyed 03/23/10

Deep hazy amber cider like color. One finger sandy head with very little retention, not really expected with a high abv beer such as this. Lacing is decent and somewhat surprising.

Bright pine and citric hops. Very sweet caramel back bone. Malt is dominate though pairs well with the hops.

Sweet rich caramel hits the tongue first. Hops seem to lighten the flavor. Sweet citrus with a light pine flavor. Lacks a biting bitterness for a DIPA.

Smooth though a bit short of creamy. Finish is much drier than I expected. Slightly warm boozy heat but not off putting.

Drinks lighter than its abv. One would certianly be good but a couple in a sitting would not be the worst thing in the world. Definitely worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Bottle only lists 98 IBU's, no freshness/bottling date or abv listed. After tasting I'm not surprised to login to see that it clocks in at a 13.6%. Guess I was expecting less though considering this is available in OH... that, or this site has outdated info.

Label would be interesting if it was just the tree, the scrit layered on top makes this one ugly looking beer label.

Poured into a snifter, bright ruby/honey color. Clear, almost no head and very little lacing.

Smells of bitter hops, and alcohol. It's got a sweetness, but I'll attribute it to the abv or malt, it's not citrusy or fruity as if it were imparted by the hops.

Tastes bitter up front, not sure if it tastes a full 98 though. Then you get some alcohol burn in the bottom of your throat, followed by strong sweetness and caramel malts, followed by more alcohol sting on the tongue and throat. This tastes more like a hoppy barleywine and less of a DIPA.

Medium bodied with almost no carbonation. Sticky coating left inside the mouth, I need a glass of water.

This beer is very boozy to the point that it's boozy to be boozy. It doesn't compliment the beer and makes it tough to drink. After all the hype when this was released earlier this year I'm now glad I found a single (seemingly illegally) for $3.99 rather than paying $15.99 or whatever it was for a 4-pack. Not impressed here.

Poured from a bottle in a DFH snifter glass

A: Pours a ruby/brown color with very little head and minimal lacing.

S: There is a little citrus, but definitely not as hoppy as expected for a double IPA. A lot more malt/bread on the nose than usual for this style.

T: Again, not very citrusy, a lot more malty/bready than most doubles.

D/M: It is creamy, but did not have a lot of carbonation. Its a sipper for sure. Overall I liked it, but am guessing that it may be a bit old. Did not find a bottling date on it, and would be more than willing to give it another shot on a fresh bottle. If what I drank is what it normally is supposed to taste like, I will pass in the future.
