Pours out a dark amber with a thin head. Smells of a light hint of herbal hops. Smells like sugar. In the flavor: a wallop of sweetness with very restrained bitterness and hops flavor. Very hot finish. I have to admit that the mouthfeel is nice. Full and creamy. This is an IPA? Even for a barleywine, this is sweet and lacking.

12oz can from Monkeypuker (thanks man!). Canned 12/18/13. Served in a Clown Shoes snifter.

Hazy chestnut with two fluffy fingers of manilla head. A thick layer of foam lingers, leaving big clumps of lace.

Straightforward, lackluster nose with pine, citrus zest and biscuit.

This one is a bitter bomb. Flavors of pine, earthy, floral, citrus peel, cracker, biscuit, pepper and alot of booze.

Slick medium full body with moderate carbonation. Bitter earthy hops and alcohol finish.

Ultimately this is just ok. Not much flavor to balance the heavy handed booze and bitterness. I didn't have a problem drinking the can but I won't be seeking out any more.
