Very malty at first. Heavy mouthfeel. Decent hoppy finish.

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper color; the head is impressive and leaves a goodly amount of lace

Smell: Rather malt forward aromatics, with a lot of caramel and stone fruit; pine recessive

Taste: Caramel and stone fruit, up front, with a growing grassy/piney bitterness that devolves into pure bitterness, after the swallow and into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; somewhat oily

Overall: Bought this a few weeks ago but now realize that the bottle has a year or so of age on it; perhaps the hops were more interesting when the beer was fresher but this is more like a hoppy Barleywine today and not a very good one, at that

A big, giant hop-bomb, but kind of a mess. Dank bouquet with edges of overripe fruit. The flavors are bitter and sweet, but not harmoniously. Orange pith and resin define the profile. So many huge IPA out there that are far more drinkable, I wouldn't seek this out again.

Too much malt for a "hoppy" IPA
