Pours an orange hue with a massive yellow/tannish head. Big earthy hop presence on the nose with touches of grapefruit and citrus. Some roasted malts and dark fruit bowl smells come through as well but the scent is dominantly earthy hops. Good clarity for a barley wine.
Incredibly smooth and well blended for being so fresh. Roasted buttery malt up front followed by caramel sweetness and a delicate piney and earth hop finish. Decent bitterness. Thick and viscous in mouthfeel but with good carbonation. Touches of bright fruit show up here and there to compliment some of the other flavors. Incredibly delicate and so well blended. Bravo Sierra Nevada.
Earthy flavors usually aren't my thing but theyre pick up enough just to round everything else out. Elegant yet so big. I'm impressed.
