Pours a dark somewhat opaque amber color with a generous amount of frothy head. Smells somewhat like an IPA with the hop character, with some sugar and malt notes typical of a barleywine. The taste is dominated by piney hops, and a touch of a malt backbone. The mouthfeel is very nice and smooth, with the right amount of bitterness along with being medium bodied and having nice carbonation. Also the alcohol is well hidden for nearly 10%.
A quality barleywine from Sierra Nevada, this is enjoyable fresh and I'm curious to see how it tastes after a few years.
