This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Our spin on an American-style barley wine, and we we say "our spin", we mean it's super hoppy. Dry hopped with Simcoe, Centennial and Sterling hops, a real piney and citrusy flavor shines through the dark, caramelly malt backbone. Some may think of it as more of a double IPA than a barley wine, we just think its delicious.

The Bruery tulip

A: Pours a murky brown with hints of red in there when the light hits it. Two full fingers of marshmallow like head. Sticky lacing. Bottle conditioned.

S: Piney. Earthy. Old hops. Sweet bready malts. Some hints of toffee behind it all. Some booze, still.

T: Surprised that I still get some hop bitterness at the front of the tongue. Big piney hop flavors. Earthy and herbal. Leads into that big malt bill, which produces notes of sweet caramel and nuttiness. Some slight toffee and almost woody notes (this is not oak aged). Finish is fairly dry. Lingering bitterness. Slight alcohol burn.

M: It's full bodied. Not overly chewy like a RIS.

A small off white head on a dark brown body. A nicely hoppy aroma of pine and grapefruit with a touch of dark malt and brown sugar. A much more barleywine like flavor with notes of molasses, pine, pepper, and mustard. Medium thick body, modately carbonation, and a sweet finish. Nicely done, fairly hoppy, but definitely not a DIPA, there is a lot of dark sugar and rich, spicy character that cleary makes this a barleywine.
