Chilled 750ml bottle poured into a sniffer.
Prior to pouring it I am immediately taken by the killer red bottle, very cool looking. In a way it lends a little to the beer that ends up in the glass. The body is a very bold reddish copper with a thick two fingers of fluffy white head that stays in place for a reasonable amount of time.
Aroma is mostly spicy hops with a strong pine and floral edge, did not notice the caramel that others have mentioned.
Taste is huge upfront, even a little bit aggressive, but evolves into a more straight forward blend of sour malt, citrus fruits and pine.
Well balanced mouth feel. a light to moderate level of carbonation marries with a refreshing and smooth body. The finish is a long drawn out process with many of the sour and pine notes clinging on tightly.
I can definitely see the Barley wine comparison. It is not really my thing and the scoring may show that, but if the features I have listed resonate with you then I say go for it, you'll love it.
