A - Pours a beautiful amber with a garnet hue into my tulip glass, just under two fingers of off white head that has really nice retention and sticky lacing.
S - Hops are very present as this is fresh, grapefruit and pine, caramel malts are coming out in the background.
T - Hop bite are bitterness are at the forefront of this barleywine. Very piney and earthy, with some citrus notes as well. As it washes over the palate the caramel malt sweetness comes out as well as some dark fruit tones, with a delightful bitterness that really lingers on the palate.
M - Smooth and creamy, very lively on the palate.
D - Very drinkable, great readily available barleywine.
