Rated through the style lense of American barleywine. A pretty good one. A lousy DIPA, however.

22oz brown bomber, sample from the brewery.

Mildly hazed deep copper hue, lacing stays around for a good while. Smells of boozy esters, pine cones, grapefruit pith, blonde tobacco, tea, and peppercorn in the nose. Creamy mouthfeel with lots of smoothness, a bit chewy with a malt sweetness that soon gets attacked by an aggressive hop bitterness and long lingering hop flavor. Warming and very juicy. Some breadiness and caramel from the malt, orange rind hoppiness from start to finish and suggestions of pine and tobacco. Hoppiness sticks to the palate and does not want to fade. A massive brew, a palate destroyer, and lots of fun to sip.

Big boozy IPA. Amber in color, balanced nose, 1/4 inch head. A nice balance between the hops and the malts with a boozy flavor throughout. I'm not usually a fan of super boozy DIPAs but this isn't over powered. Solid beer but it won't be going down as greatest of all time.

Golden in appearance with tints of orange. Aromas of citrus, floral hops and a bit of spruce. Flavors of floral, spruce and piney hops. Moderately bitter aftertaste.

Really tastes weird especially in the aftertaste...too metallic and the hops are too muted.

I agree with previous comments that it has too much complexity to flesh out fully. I understand it was a rare pour but $8 for a 10 oz draft also seemed a bit pricey.
