This is a favourite american barley wine.
Pours a red/brown color with a large foamy head! Very nice too look at.
Smell is packed with hops! Grapefruit, citrus, elder and other nice things. Notes of some malt, caramel and syrup is also found.
Taste is very bitter and hoppy. You can definitely feel this is 90 IBU. Lots of nice elderflowers, citrus and grapefruit in the taste. Nice malty, caramely notes behind all this makes a good balance to this beer, even though they are not that easy to note. Maybe will come through with some age? I have one bottle left, so...
Very fullbodied mouthfeel, quite thick, bitter.
A good beer, I must say!
