Pours a nice cherry garnet with a dense white head that has a lot of "IPA" behind it. Aroma confirms that as the hops rule, piney and sugary sweet, some grapefruit and caramel there as well, but the pine scent of the hops dominates. The mellow caramel comes through more in the taste, which is surprisingly smooth, lots of bittersweet grapefruit. A lot of sweetness comes from the malts, while the hops keep it in balance, though the sweetness shows through a bit more despite some impressive hoppiness.
A tremendous brew, on par with Great Divide, Sierra Nevada and Victory in the barleywine style.
