Big thanks to my man olavzisper for sending me this bottle! Enjoyed from a lccb snifter.
Bottle #775

Brew pours a surprisingly dark almost brown with a thin off white IPA head. Head dissolves mostly leaving a thick skin on the surface of the brew and nice lace on the glass.

Nose is a soft resinous hop.

Taste follows the nose leading with rich resinous hop over a big caramel malt backbone. Almost barleywine like. Very piny and caramel biscuit. Bitterness on the finish, a bit chewy.

Overall falls on the resinous side of the IPA scale as opposed to the citric bombs I love. Not a bad brew and I will have no problem taking down the 750, but this one seems to tow the line on an American barleywine with thick rich hopping and a but syrupy. Very enjoyable and worth checking out if you get the chance, but don't expect west coast or citric IPA here. Almost comes across as an amber and is a bit reminiscent of nugget nectar but on steroids...a hint of booziness tingles my mouth.
