3.61/5 rDev -3.5%
Sent over by @JISurfer, thanks! 12 oz bottle poured into a Speigelau glass.
Darker than expected, murky reddish brown opque body with a tan creamy head of good retention, lacing.
Smell is immediately boozy. But also, but caramel and toffee flavors.
Taste is booze, caramel, stale hops, and more alcohol.
Mouthfeel is heavy and thick with medium carbonation, good for a barleywine style.
Definitely a BW and not an IPA at all. For a BW, decent offering. For an IPA, definitely misses the mark. I'll rate it as a BW for now as if I didn't know what it was going into it.

4.65/5 rDev +24.3%
Smell: Caramel and pine
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation and hoppy.
Overall: As others have noted, this beer is more in barleywine territory than the IPA territory and it is a good one when measured by that standard. Strong hence the 12.5% alcohol.
