A deep orange amber color with a nice topper of white suds and plenty of lacing. The aroma is sort of vague citrus and alcohol, not very strong or alluring. The flavor brings sweet licorice citrus pine and woodsy caramel. I detect some candied apple malt and leafy maple. Nice. The body is solidly mid-plus with a smooth feel that offers modest carbonation. An aroma more consistent with the flavor would go a long way here , but still a solid brew.

The 2013 release of Noggin Floggin is my favorite yet. To me, if HUB decided to call this an imperial IPA then I wouldn't have questioned it. Maybe the only thing that makes this a barleywine is the higher ABV. For example, the color was a clear, gold with a white head. The smell was delightfully hop heavy. The reason we all love beers is because of the taste, right? Noggin Floggin blew me away in this category. The malt flavor was simple but strong and the hops... oh the hops. This is why I think this beer could be an imperial IPA. The hop flavor tilted towards citrus but was balanced by other flavors as well. Mouthfeel: wet... jk it was pretty full bodied. A very well orchestrated beer. Bravo HUB!

This beer had an beautiful dark amber appearance. Although I didn't get much out of nose other than the smell of alcohol, the flavor was really good. It has a light hops flavor with notes of malty caramel and a strong alcohol warming finish. I was really impressed with this beer.
