-11.3%, chalice. 55-59C serving temperature.

A: Ice tea pour produced a steady sitting peanut shell toned capping that was firm and frothy of 2 finger standing. Slow, mesmerizing pace of micro-effervesce is spacious and gentle on the rise. Big lace dressing on the vessel.

S: Toffee, passion fruit, fresh peach and fruity nose. Freshly squeezed citrus, fresh herbal notes with sweet toffee alcohol on the finish. Absolutely love the aroma here, great representation of the galaxy hops.

T: Scotchy malt, light grassy hops with a nice smooth polished delivery of sweet boozy alcohol. Dank herbal hops, dried toffee, dried tropical fruit, pine-scotch with spicy sweet citric elements. Some yeasty apple-plum esters.

M: Full bodied malty lush mouthful, warming spicy toffee and gentle carbonation.

O: Overall love the opening aroma, strength and complexity that highlights the galaxy hops. Beautiful, smooth scotchy booze flavor with a gentle spicy alcohol leave.

A: Pours a dark copper color with a lasting half finger tan head that leaves some soapy and sticky lace after each sip.

S: Heavy malt presence, some faint mango, caramel, a touch of vanilla and some golden raisin. Not intense in the way of hops, but they're tucked in there.

T: I'm not the biggest American barleywine fan, but this is surprisingly good. A big blanket of malt and some light pine resin throughout. Touches of toffee and a bit of pine on the finish, trailing into a lingering pine resin bite.
