2010 Edition Bottle
Pours as deep copper color big carbonation not overly active. Foamy off white head that dissipates to a fairly thin lace. You can tell this is a big high gravity beer just by looking at it.
Smell- Pine, deep sugary grapefruit, has kind of a deep forest pine smell. lil rummy with butterscotch flavor odors peak through the pine scents. Good by not great smelling brew.
T-Brown sugar, pine, grapefruit, hops really come through and have a nice bright bitterness.
M- coats the mouth well has a good balance of sweetness and huge bitter hop bite.
o- love this beer has become a northern Ca classic and one that i look forward to every spring. Highly recommend it to someone who wants a different take on barley wines.
