from notes.

Pours a hazy burnt orange with a decent sized white head that quickly fades to light lacing.

Smells syrupy like pine and citrus hops. Pretty pungent.

Tastes malty sweet with a lasting bitterness. Tastes fruity but with a big malt character as well.

Mouthfeel is a light medium with lots of carbonation.

Overall is good and am glad I got to try this.

Pours a hazy shade of orange to brown (top to bottom) with a finger of head which quickly dissipates. Smells like barley juice! Still getting some resinous pine notes in the nose, but mainly smells like lightly toasted malts, bready, barley.
The flavor is spot on with aroma.. Mostly barley, a bit of wood like- cedar flavor, bitter hops are still present but not very dominant over the malts. Like a ripe Barleywine.
Medium body with lower carbonation.
I'm sure this was excellent fresh, hell for what it's worth this makes for a hell I a tasty barley wine.. Not too sweet, not too bitter, complex enough grain bill to still stand out with age (who knows how old this bottle is).

Bottle - not sure of release date but this may have been a bit old. No points deducted for that in this review.

Muddy orange pour with small white head. Aroma is orange, bread. Taste is caramel, sweet malts. Lighter bodied and bitter finish. I’m sure this was splendid when fresh.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours deep amber with a fading head.
Masses of pine and resinous hops on the nose along with a massive hit of clean malt and caramel.
Super full-on flavours, heaps of pine and resinous, spicy and earthy hops along with loads more clean malt underneath. Finishes with an aggressive but balanced bitterness.
Carbonation could be a bit higher.

3.93/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a very cloudy tan orange color, no head, barely any lacing.

S - Aroma makes up for the scary color. Dank fruity and piney hops - grapefruit, and light orange. Caramel doughy malt.

T - Follows the nose. Light doughy caramel sweetness underneath from start to finish with a very assertive hop presence: grapefruit and pine bitterness, light bubblegum, slight earth, and a very noticeable alcohol warming on the way down, especially after that first sip. Ends with a layer of wet, sweet malt and a lingering coating of peppery grapefruit and pine.

M - Medium body, slightly and still dry, bitterness is aggressive and lingering leaving the mouth with a coating of peppery grapefruit, oranges, and pine. The alcohol effervescence creates a layer of dryness over top of a wet palette.

O - Another high octane IBU palette trasher with Mikkeller's hand in the brew kettle. Plan on everything tasting like water after this beer. Powerful and aggressive.

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

A: The beer is very hazy dark yellowish amber in color. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are moderate to strong aromas of a mixture of hops (pine resin, tropical fruits, citrus) and caramel malts in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has a moderate amount of bitterness. There are balanced flavors of mats and hops in the initial taste and bitterness lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very well balanced between the malts and hops and any traces of alcohol are non-existent.
