Poured from a 12 oz bottle to a DFH Snifter glass.
bottled in 2011
Pours a clear deep copper color with little to no head what so ever, a thin lace of small tight knit bubbles created from the little visible carbonation rising from the bottle of the glass. Huge grapefruit hops slam the face, lemon citrus all over the place, a subtle but present dark fruit aroma also. Earthy, tobacco, piny wood characters follow as the beer warms up. A spice like scent is created from the bready sugary malt meeting with the bold alcohol scent. So complex, the nose on this beer is insane. Caramalized fruit explodes on the tongue. Bold sugar meet grapefruits, tobacco, sweet fruits and subtle alcohol. Gigantic on body and feel, through the roof. Subtle and sweet despite the 18%, you only really feel the booze through the heat not in taste or on the nose. Overall; this beer is insane, its aggressive with hops, malts , alcohol and sugar. Totally worth trying, this was an extremely intense experience.

3.78/5 rDev -7.6%
12oz bottle poured into Dogfish Glass
A: A nice golden brown in color, with slight head at the top and barely any lacing around the glass.
S: Slight hints of grapefruit and a sour beer, the alcohol is present in the nose as well.
T:First taste is booze warms you right to the bone, more malts than hops very odd for a DIPA, good balance though.
M: Mid-high carbonation, medium bodied.
O: Not quite what I was expecting, I was thinking this was gonna be off the charts but it was just simple. Lots of booze, one was enough for me.

Bottled 7/7/2008 - Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Duvel Tulip. Served at proper cellar temp.
A: Pours a deep copper, clear-yet-slightly-hazy color. Aggressive, 6oz center pour leads to a half-finger off white head that disappears relatively quickly leading to sticky, consistent lacing.
S: Supremely sticky sweet malt forward, caramel malt. ABV is very prominent here but somehow either before, or after, there is a subdued pungent spruce that has to come from the hops but it's a weirdly fermented smelling. In a good way - if that makes sense.
T: Holy shit - this is a phenomenal beer. Tastes like a barleywine, and drinks like a barleywine and the age has really done this thing wonders. It's backed the alcohol flavor down and brought the syrupy, caramel malt flavor forward. It's really, really delicious.
M: Medium body, wonderfully carbonated. Aftertaste lingers for ever and lead. Finish is crisp and bitter.
O: Insanely complex, smooth 18% beer. This doesn't really fit in the IIPA category but it's definitely in a class of its own.

A clear light orange copper blend. White head of inch and a half sunk slowly in glass. Large amount of medium sized carbonation bubbles can be seen rising to the top. Sheets of lace all the way down glass.
A strange blend of aromas. The first smell as a very fruity initial scent. A hops quality is citric. The initial smell ends with a noticable spike of alcohol. Light lemon aroma blends with malt sweetness nicely.
Super sweet malt taste finished with a burn that betrays the alcohol content to an otherwise sweet, fragrent beer. Nice hops bitter on the back of the tongue. A light fruit blend is present, and includes tangering and grapefruit.
A thicker then average body. Very nice carbonation helps the multiple flavors shift on the tongue.
A great offering int he style. Great beer to enjoy with a burger topped with pepper jack cheese. This one is not for the faint of heart. A monster alcohol taste would turn a lot of people away.
