look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle from the latest vintage into a duvel glass.

A: body is a clean orange amber, slightly golden, absolutley no head after even an aggressive pour, looks a little bit syrupy, no lacing, i guess that is probably due to the alcohol content.

S: when cold it smells like sweet citrus with hints of pine and earthy hops, as it warms the sweetness and alcohol content become more pronounced as the beer warms. Sweet caramel, alcohol heat, deep pine and earthy hops, smells good, smells like a barleywine.

T: very sweet, notes of burnt caramel with. The hops and a touch of bitterness are there, but i kind of wish they were a bit more pronounced.... The malts seem to hold the heavy hand here. Kind f reminds me of sweet sweet hop juice.

M: medium body with low carbonation, oily. Pretty good mouthfeel for such a high abv

O: a good beer, this one deffinatly walks the line between ipa and barleywine but pretty tasty overall worth giving a go rspciallynif you have a sweet tooth and enjoy a high abv brew
