Bottle into tulip
A – Moderate carbonation gives a thicker 1 finger head that reduces thin layer, no lacing after pour, brew is a cloudy reddish/brown amber, quite pedestrian 3.5
S – Barleywine like aromas: dried apricots, caramel sweetness are backed by more subtle pine, prune, alcohol, candied fruits, and citrus rind 3.5
T – In one word, intense. Sweet, like a bourbon infused toffee, with a moderate trailing bitterness but the malts dominate the show, unbalanced. Two gigantic positions of hop & malt fighting it out. Alcohol punch is less than I expected. Too sweet for my tastes. 2.5
M – Thick & syrupy, full body, low carbonation, warming alcohol 3
O – A beer I will not be revisiting. A challenging sipper, an over the top grain & hop bill that is reflected in the price and the taste, a novelty. An overwhelming brew, which is not a hop bomb but more barleywine. 1 bottle feels like I’ve been eating Halloween candy for hours. 2.5

Where do I start, this beer completely took me by surprise. Its bold but you can tell that just by reading the outside label. Pouring it and taking in it's aromas, my taste buds started salivating immediately. It has a very potent citrus and pine scent with a very enveloping tone of vanilla and herbs giving it a sturdy weight. The actual taste itself lives up to it's aroma completely. It is very rich with a powerful hop flavor! I picked up on some of the finer notes of vanilla, spice, raisin, and a slight mineral flavor all wrapped up in tangy notes of orange and pine. I love this beer. It is truly complex and makes you think about what your drinking. In my opinion, enjoy this one like a fine scotch or bourbon. Just a few sips and I got a head buzz from all those hops! warm it up a little in your glass and your golden. I plan on buying a couple more bottles and letting them age.
