22 oz bottle served in a large mug. 2015 batch; says it's 8.7% abv this year. Can't find a bottled on date or anything like that.

Pours slightly hazy golden with a perfectly sized large head that fades at a medium pace and appears to be leaving nearly solid sheet of lacing down the sides of the glass. Smell is hop cones, juicy and floral, fruit blossoms of some sort. Very powerful aroma.

Taste is heavily bitter. Sweetness that dominates the aroma is definitely detectable, but bitterness dominates the flavor. Resinous, piney. If you pay close attention, the first splash of flavor as it hits your tongue is juicy and sweet.

Mouthfeel is dry -- really dry. Resinous. Overall, very pleased with this beer.

Drinks a lot like Founders Devil Dancer. Incredible. Beautiful brown poor in a 6 oz. snifter with a finger of off white head. The aroma is surprisingly tame (maybe just too cold). As it warms, the bubblegum/juicy-fruit gum aroma gets enveloped by citrus and floral hop bitterness.

Triple IPA, yes, this drinks like an American style barley wine barley wine. Listed at 112 IBU, the caro-syrup sweetness pushes the complex hop bitterness to a higher plane of flavor sensation. Butter-caramel and plum/raisin in the backend. Very mild fruity alcohol on the breath.

Sticky. Wonderful.
