Single bottle, 2012 edition, from a six-pack courtesy of one Mr. daryk77 - cheers man! Shared at a recent tasting.
Poured into a goblet. Bright amber, clear, big foamy head, sheets of lacing.
The nose certainly reminds me of the western states - pine, citrus, resin, big malt, caramel, toffee, and a very light booze character
Similar taste as in the nose, with strong resin and pine flavors, not overly malty, slightly astringent. Unreal how little of the booze shines through - feels and tastes more like a bold American pale than a barleywine. Well hopped and quite enjoyable.
Medium bodied, nice carbonation, slightly astringent. Again, little trace of alcohol to be found.
Great brew, flavorful but not overwhelming in terms of strength. Aging would treat this beer very well.
