12oz bottle split with a friend, Red Oak becker, 2012 batch
Appearance is a gorgeous ruby with an incredibly persistent off-white head (hund around for almost an hour). Smell is like being punched in the nose by hops, super oily grapefruit smell. Malt must be there as it is almost balanced, but sweetness is blasted aside by powerful grapefruit hops with notes of pine and tangerine. My god, this is a hoppy brew and a slow sipper. Body is pretty light considering the hops and medium carbed, it almost burns in the palette from hops alone.
Best American barley I have had, nice body that avoids the syrup and smokiness so common in American barleywines.
