22oz bottle served in a large snifter. I don't see a date. Given to me by @mr-jj.

Pours a clear reddihs amber, moderaely dark, with a very small head, and a very small amount of carbonation. Smell is barleywine, malt and alcohol -- a little cherry or apricot. Some fruity aroma.

Taste is powerfully bitter -- wow! Like chewing on hops (which I've done)! Hard to get much else in the flavor -- but there's some honeysuckle, it's not lacking in sweetness, there's just so much bitter.

Mouthfeel is smooth, dry, but super sticky. Overall, it's a good beer, but you better be in love with hops.

As I've grown to be more of a hop head over the years, attempting to see what the populist craze was really about, this beer has become more decadent to me. Although, still to this day, the obsession of overly hopped brews still gets on my nerves.

Most recently had on draft 2/15/16, this pours an orange-ish copper with a moderate white foamy head, aromas of dank hops with orange and grapefruit aggressively assault the senses.

A nicely balanced dankness hits on the nose as well as the tongue, to the point it almost develops a sour profile. To me, I appreciate sour more than the overwhelming bitterness some double/"triple" IPAs produce, so this is actually quite a tasty, pleasant beer.

L: Brilliant, deep amber, 1-2” frothy foam cap
S: resiny, minty hops
T: Starts rich and malty and then intense hops come on board leading to an alcoholic finish that suggests whiskey. There is some caramel supporting the hops and alcohol and there is also some vanilla. Some citrus in the hops, especially citrus rind and layers of malt.
F: Creamy, medium full body and medium low carbonation.
O: Very intense but very well done.
