A: Pours crystal clear yellow with minimal amounts of head. No lacing and no visible carbonation.
S: Aromas are fruity with hints of pineapple and the presence of the hops is easy to detect.
T: Flavor is cloyingly sweet and a pleasant amount of bitterness contributed from the hops and just a hint of the pineapple. The alcohol is subtly present in the taste.
M: Medium bodied with a light amount of carbonation. A little bit sticky.
O: Just too strong at 18% ABV to be easy to drink. I have enjoyed this beer the couple of times I have tried it but it just is not one of my favorites in the style - too sweet and not quite enough bitterness for me.

I have never liked this beer fresh! So in 08 i put a bottle down. Bottled: July 07, 2008.
2/12/2012. So today is the day! Lets see how this fared.
This poured a dark and cloudy bronze orange with a one finger width off-white head.Man this is cloudy! Lots of floaters. Lacing is distributed randomly around the glass. Smells like an orange liqueur, although the alcohol has been muted a bit. OOOH! This is delicious. The alcohol is much more hidden than i remember. Now, the bitterness has been replaced with sweetness. The hops ARE this beer, but the hops as you know them have changed. This is an interesting and syrupy elixer. The extreme stupid beer that is 120 minutes fresh has butterflyed into a delicious barleywine. Awesome.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a clear medium red orange amber. Thin fine off-white head with good retention (of what little is there!) and lacing. Aroma is very close to a barley wine, sweet and caramel hops and herbal hops. Flavor is as intense as I expected. Sweet malt and alcohol up front, very bitter. A malty finish with a hop kick. At this point, it is interesting to drink, but a bit over the top in bitterness and alcohol. I'm looking forward to tracking this through time as it mellows. Very different and interesting.

On tap at brouwers.
A pours a clear orange topped with a thin head that dissipates quickly.
S lots of sweet fruity citrus with some booze.
T very sweet and fruity balanced out by a lot of alcoholic bite.
M thick with a warming feeling.
Overall this is a surprisingly good beer, I was expecting something like hop infused paint thinner but instead I got a smooth tasty beer. While the abv definitely makes this one a sipper, I recommend trying this one.

12oz bottle (bottled 2011) shared with a friend into two skaker pints.
A- Unbridled haze with a copper hue. Poured aggressively leaving a 1 finger ivory head but fades to a fine but persistent thin layer.
S- Huge hit of raisons! Not getting any ethanol, but it definitely has a big malt sweetness. A bit of a leather. Really, not too complex.
T- Mostly bittering hops. Big sweet malt that takes over. You know the hops are there because you're not reeling from the sweetness, but there's no bouquet of hop flavor.
M- About as viscous of an IPA as you will ever find, more than any barley wine we have ever found. Extremely cloying. Coats all 9,000 taste buds on the tongue.
O- This is my second endeavor with this beer, but my friends 4th. We both believe it is way more drinkable now than ever before. This is probably due to our changing palettes. This is not a best in class, but really a touchstone. You can track your drinking prowess by revisiting this beer. This is the beer drinkers beer.
