Big thanks to my man olavzisper for yet another lccb brew, enjoyed from the lccb snifter.

a - brew poured a deep chestnut with orange highlights when held to the light. Decent bubbly cap that leaves a think skin of bubbles.

s - nose caries a strong caramel malt. Some soft hop.

t/m/o - the caramel malt comes rough in a huge way. The hopping is more resinous than anything else. Biscuity. Easy drinking light for the style...but actually not very to style at all. Rather shocked that this is considered a IIPA, more English barleywine. Not a bad beer, but if you are in the mood for a IIPA, look elsewhere since although this bottle is not super fresh...so cannot comment how it was at release time...any hop that May have been there at one time or another has faded. If this is how it was fresh, than this is the maltreat IIPA I have ever had. Like I said though, not a bad beer, but usually I am craving some citric hopping in an IPA, definitely in a IIPA and this one is missing that key flavor.
