A - Slightly hazed gold with a finger of fizzy white head, medium lacing.
S - Where's the aroma? I mean really, this literally just smells like alcohol with an acrid hop smell. Pine and some lemon zest, astringent for sure.
T - 131 IBU's is stupid, and the bitterness attests to that, sweet boozy malt, caramel, citrus.
M - Bitter chewy clingy thick and full, lots of burn.
O - After seeing everyone rant and rave on this beer, its a massive let down, hop booze in the worst form.

Amber colored with decent head retention and lacing for its strength. Dank, pungent aroma thick with green, spicy hops, herbs, scallions, butterscotch, mango, passion fruit, and toffee. A big hoppy burst greets the senses right away, followed by a substantial toasted malt backing. Honey, grapefruit, mango, resin, and caramel. Boozy alcohol smothered by bitterness, malty sweet under the hops, and warming…American Barleywine territory. Not a great finish – a little too hot and sticky. Rather heavy, textured, and bitter. That, in addition to being somewhat under-carbonated hurts the drinkability. Oh boy…I really wanted to like this one, but it’s just too sticky and brash to be all that enjoyable. Not bad, just disappointing and overrated.
