This pours a hazy copper color with a slight head. The aroma is good and bold with hops but nothing over the top like you might imagine with this beer. The taste is big and bold with decent amount of sweetness from the alcohol content and no where near as hoppy as I would have thought. Really flavorful and well made.

The aroma is super sweet, very malty with some orange and pine hints too. Definite alcohol burn is noticeable too.

Taste is also very malty; like an American style Barleywine really. Caramel, toffee, bit of bread, definite orange hop notes & some pine and even though it's sweet there is bitterness too.

Boozy, malty and just not what I would even consider an IPA. Don't get the hype.
