On tap at Mohawk Bend in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a clear light orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a honey flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
Serving type: on-tap

Bright copper color with a thick head with decent retention.
Delicious aroma with fresh notes of grapefruit and orange peel, a bit of toasted malts and a light pine. Very balanced, the type you don’t get tired of sniffing it.
Flavor start with sweet toasted malts and then slaps your face with a bold spicy and bitter mouth. Notes of grapefruits, peppery yeast, some peat, pine, earth and maple syrup.
Dry with a long lasting bitter aftertaste.
Full body with medium carbonation of tiny bubbles. Sticky feeling. Alcohol of 11.5% abv is incredibly well hidden considering its strength, though it numbs a bit your gums.
Quite bitter DIPA, made me sneeze a couple of times (ps. This is my internal IBU thermometer). This got to be fresh, it is a shame that most US brewers insist in not give such key information. Very assertive beer, that is why I wouldn’t classify it as a Barley Wine, though appears so.
This beer knocks you down for a good night sleep.

3.03/5 rDev -22.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma very faint citrus
Head Large (7 cm), frothy, off white, slowly diminishing
Lacing OK, rings about 1.5 cm wide around glass
Body nice medium yellow, clear
Flavor starts without any hints of anything, just somewhat bitter; no malt, no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl. Leaves a chalky aftertaste
Palate medium, watery, carbonation soft.
Disappointment. No distinct flavor, just a light bitterness. Not a particularly good offering from an excellent brewery. I last tried this in 2009 – still not very good, just OK.
Somewhat better than BMC offerings.
