look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: A copper brown, with a small tan head. It has a sort of brick-like color, quite dark for an IPA. However, it looks like it tastes: delicious.

S: Not very strong, but a somewhat sweet smell with pine in the background.

T: Huge sweetness and caramel flavor up front, with lots of hops. There is some pine in the background. The heavy 12.5% ABV is pretty well masked, so be careful when drinking this brew!

M: Medium-bodied with decent carbonation. Pretty smooth overall. Again, be careful to remember that it is 12.5% ABV!

O: An incredibly tasty brew, and much sweeter than your standard IPA, which is surprising, considering the high alcohol content. Overall, I think this is a tremendous beer, and is highly underrated. Thomas Creek scored big with this one.

Not nearly as hoppy as most IPA's which I personally enjoyed. Kinda thick but kinda awesome. Weighing in at 12.5 ABV you won't need much to feel like a total champion. However as a complete amateur myself I was not aware that it tastes of barley wine, which other reviews noted. Definitely glad I purchased it
