A- lovely deep gold - honey colored. Thick head dissipated quickly, leaving no lacing.

S- sweet, malty nose. Agitating the beer yields resinous hops and some alcohol.

T- taste is well balanced for the strength. Astringent, but not unpleasant, alcohol burn. Pungent hop flavor, but with a sweet, mighty malt backbone.

M- thick, chewy, delicious. Moderate carbonation.

O- a strong, intimidating, but tasty DIPA. Letting it warm slowly unlocked more sweet malt and alcohol, but I still found this a pleasant, balanced experience despite the strength. One 12 oz. bottle per session though!

Appearance: Puts on a nice bubble show, with the head settling in at just over two inches; the liquid is copper and clear; the retention is excellent though lacing is sparse

Smell: Smells surprisingly sweet for the style, more like a barleywine, with caramel tones buttressing the piney hops

Taste: Rather sweet, up front, with the caramel tones dominating; by the time the piney and grassy hops make an entrance, the boozy character starts to impact the profile; aggressively harsh, after the swallow and through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; lots of warmth in the gullet

Overall: Surprised I haven't tasted this one before and it has been a long time since I have ventured in Flying Dog territory; love the artwork but am finding this beer to be harsh, unbalanced and somewhat one-dimensional in the flavor profile of both the malts and hops
