Draft sample @ ’t Schooltje // colab. with HotD, barley wine aged on Kentucky bourbon barrels (like pretty much all the new stuff we had there, they got a bunch of these barrels, now they got to use them) // Struise IPA’s were always very close to hoppy barley wines & this is close to an American style DIPA // doesn’t seem like a difference between an IPA & a barley wine exists for them // interesting // this is quite young and as mentioned by Urbain in true HotD fashion this is a hoppy barley wine that should be aged in order to get the hops out of it like Doggie Claws, which indeed should be aged to get the hops out of I feel // clear golden with a creamy white head // smells of creamy pine resin hops, tangerines, grapefruits, peel with some caramel // taste-wise, this is full of caramel malts but it is very bitter – everything about this makes me think of a DIPA, they clearly made this to be a barley wine – lots of citrus peel, grapefruit, marmalade, grass in the finish, caramel coating of the whole especially in the beginging before the grass jumps out is also quite bitter as well // body is quite caramel creamy // a definitive touch of HotD is felt in this beer.
