750ml bottle. I'm starting to believe that 'goop' is Danish slang for sugary high-test beer, and now, 'majs' (maize) is the headwaters source, as such. Appropriate, then, that this is a collaboration with Three Floyds, they of the Corn Belt home state locale.

This beer pours a cloudy, dark tarnished apricot amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, densely foamy, and yet bubbly off-white head, which leaves sudsy Simpsons' era blob monster lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of rather sweet orange and grapefruit juice, weirdly caramelized malt, Corn Pops, slightly metallic alcohol, pine resin, and further earthy, leafy, and perfumed floral hops. The taste is more of the same - blended juicy citrus flesh, gritty corn sugar, mildly bready caramel malt, masked savoury spices, herbal, weedy, and leafy hops, and an increasingly floral booziness.

The bubbles are pretty sedate in their understated and pithy frothiness, the body a sturdy medium weight, and actually fairly smooth, the hops turning to the fruity side of the Force, and aiding, instead of messing around here. It finishes well off-dry, the corn-led malt sweetness tempered just enough by the lingering citrus and forest floor hop notes to make a real run at cautionable drinkability.

A tasty enough American-style version of the style, though 'corn wine' seems pretty distasteful at best, doesn't it? Anyways, the maize does have a certain effect, which is to lighten things a bit, though without direct comparison, the point is moot. So - hops, then? Yup, in veritable spades.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Auburn/maroon/light bole body with a crisp snow head.

Aroma: Grapefruit, quince, and very 'earthy' hops with a balanced malty backbone.

Taste: Grapefruit, quince (an overall citrus-like character, but those fruits in particular stood out to me), wild spices, earth, grass, and crisp hops.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, yet somewhat bitter towards the end with a slightly dry finish.

Overall: I could not believe this was a Barleywine; I was convinced by the aroma and taste that this was a Double IPA. As a fan of both 3F and Mikkeller, I knew this was going to turn out well (my first beer from the '-goop' collection, by the way), but my hat goes off to both breweries, simply for making a Barelywine taste and feel like a Double IPA.
