12oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
A- beautiful ruby/amber, semi-translucent, with a thick, waffle/pancake batter head. Some alcohol legs on the glass with nice lacing.
S- hops. grapefruit and pine. A bit of a biscuity/caramel malt is there too, but it's pretty hop forward.
T- Classic SN hop profile, reminds me of Celebration. Pine, grapefruit, and quite bitter. The malt bill is pretty big, but the hop bill is just a tad bigger. Caramel sweetness tries to punch through but is beaten back. A tad boozy.
M- heavy side of medium, fair amount of carbonation to move the taste along. Wish it was just a tad more creamy
O- an overall very good americanized barleywine. Would love to age one to see how it is with the hops backed off a bit.
