32oz growler filled at Heinen's in Mayfield Village, Ohio

32oz growler poured into a pint glass. Pours a transparent burnt copper with a nice tan head that fades and leaves nice retention and lacing. The aromas are loaded with caramel malts along with a blast of citrus and tropical notes. Very sweet aromas. Lots of pineapple notes too. Malts definitely aren't shy. The flavors are nice. Lots of caramel malts with a blast of fruit. The flavors seem to match the nose. The hops really shine despite having a strong malt presence. It's slightly warm and spicy. I actually think "Strong Ale" is an appropriate moniker for this beer, although it can easily pass as an Imperial IPA. I've seen people compare it to a barleywine, but I just don't see it (this batch at least). Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. The alcohol is slightly noticeable, but it's not boozy at all. Despite it drinking like a big beer, it's dangerously drinkable. It's a nice complex beer to relax with. It makes a great sipper.

This is a very nice beer. It has Columbus written all over it. Maybe it's not my favorite hoppy beer from them, but it's definitely a respectable brew. Not bad at all and it's fun to drink. Well crafted stuff.

Served on tap into ahaker glass. The sixth of my 2014 twelve beers of Christmas.

A- Poured a dark reddish brown color with a very small off-white ring of head that left no lace.

S- Lots of big pineapple, tropical fruit, and pungent grapefruit hops notes and some sweet caramel malt notes.

T- Lots of big bready and caramel malts, huge amounts of pineapple, tropical, and pungent grapefruit hops. Quite a bit of sweetness and high bitterness.

M- Big warming, dry, medium to fuller bodied, and prickly carbonation.

O- This is a big beer, but it drank pretty smoothly. It had the huge hop character of a DIPA and a huge malt bill of a barleywine. A nice hop-forward change of pace for a Christmas seasonal beer.

A good CBC alternative to Bodhi and Fresh Hop. The hop notes help to mask that this beer is 9.2%. I like my IPAs but this will be a good considerations on those cold night this winter. If you like CBC this is one you should try.
