On tap at Apex. Didn't take notes at the time, almost never do when I'm out somewhere or with friends. The nose on this stuff will be in my dreams forever, and the taste was pretty much as good. Wish I could buy this stuff to take home, one of the best DIPAs I`ve experienced so far. (283 characters)

on-tap @ Belmont Station.
from notes.

Clear golden with a foamy white head.

Big resinous, piney, lightly boozy, citric flavor notes.

Medium body, with a slightly oily, mouth coating feel.

A very well done, big DIPA. Dangerously drinkable for such high ABV, as I could easily throw back a few pints without thought! (318 characters)

Nice clear golden brown color. Nice citrus notes, but also a little on the dry/bitter side. Very enjoyable overall. (115 characters)

On tap at Apex the other day. I think the abv. was around 9.8%, but I'm not positive about that.

The beer pours an orange amber color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose... Jesus Christ, it's a Barley Brown DIPA (there's nothing else quite like them). The nose is just completely over the top, with a huge aroma of pine, dry citrus, skunky weed and peat. The beer smells like the inside of a barn, but one where fresh hops were stored for quite some time. The flavor profile replicates the nose, except I don't pick up any of the peat or barnyard aroma. However, this is a massively hoppy DIPA, one with a bitterness level that is almost punishing. There's barely enough sweet malt to keep it all together, as my palate felt as if it was assualted by a tidal wave of hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel was fairly full, with a long, dry, incredibly bitter finish. Alcohol was pretty much unnoticeable, which is hardly a surprise, given the avalanche of hoppy bitterness on the palate.

An amazing beer, but the 12 ounce glass I enjoyed was plenty. My palate was literally worn out after drinking a glass of this bad boy. (1,127 characters)

On tap at ABV. Pours a clear amber with a dense, off white head that falls off to a ring leaving no lacing. The nose is awesome. Bright, piney, pungent hops, brutal, pungent, fruity and with plenty of grapefruit pith. Moderate malt character that makes this rather juicy. The palate opens with a big bitterness, very pungent with grapefruit juice, pine sap, bitter orange juice,English orange marmalade , especially in the way the sweetness is reserved. Medium in body with a long, bitter finish, this beer is lightly carbonated and has a wonderful mouth feel. Imagine Notorious but with a smaller body and less sweetness and you have this beer. Exceptional. (671 characters)
