Tasted in a Teku glass from a twelve ounce bottle on July 20, 2015. Look is cloudy and amber in color. Smells of fig, alcohol and malt. Taste is hops and sweet malts. Feel is flat and syrupy.

Ok, well...Never a good sign to find a foreign IPA purchase showing as retired, especially at the price paid. 11.2 oz bottle with a code of "10:59 160723" on the cap poured into a tulip glass. Heard some good things about the brewer, so I wanted to see what the fuss was about.

A - Poured an effervescent, murky, orange, with a slim fingernail head that moved quickly to nothing.

S - Some malts, heat, barleywine esque, with some fig and peach.

T - Well, that is interesting. Butterscotch. Mild alcohol. Toffee. Almost no semblance of hops. You get faint hints of leather/ashtray/wood in the aftertaste, but not so much as to detract.

M - Medium low carbonation (there is a little back end sharpness) with a very full, syrupy type mouthfeel.

O - It was oddly tasty, but it had some unsavory moments. I have no idea how old or where the beer has been, but it showed up in the "New!/Just In) section. Glad to have tried it, but would have been glad to try it for much less.

4.7/5  rDev +23%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

APPEARANCE - Opaque, cloudy, no head, some lacing, amber.

AROMA/SCENT - Hops, sweet, pine, malts.

TASTE - Hops, bitter, pine, nutty, caramel, brown sugar, bread, toffee

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Thick, no carbonation, smooth, creamy, warming, heavy, syrupy.

VALUE - $7.99 for 12-oz bottle. Good deal for import?

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - ABV surprisingly well-hidden. I wish there was a bit more carbonation, but what do you expect at ABV 14%?
