I echo Dar482 sentiment a bit. It's a TIPA. Oddly balanced, not too malty, not too hoppy, I was initially confused, and then I remembered. It's DuClaw. Fun beer, but not usually great beer. Hwever, it might be someone's gateway into barleywine, and for that, DuClaw, I thank you.

The beer comes in a rich orange color.

The aroma bursts of orange, fruity hop character, with a touch of dank and lots of sweetness.

The flavor follows with that Centennial quality up front of sweet orange marmalade. The sweetness in the front falls off quite well onto a Simcoe character of dank pine and green flavors. A really well balanced brew that does not taste like its ABV.

In general, I would categorize this as a really well made triple IPA.
