Pours a cider brown color with a one finger slightly off white head. The head leaves lace all over the glass. The aroma is of wet citra hops and other tropical smells pineapple mainly. There is also a sweetvsmell . the taste is of wet hops...its earthy and piney with a hint of citrus. The mouth feel is moderately carbonated and a little creamy. Overall a very good american barely wine. Well blended and not over powered by hops.

This one is a heavy and dark red-brown, too thick for any clarity at all and, thus, completely opaque. The head, just a little darker than tan, is also very thick and creamy. It rises to two fingers and fades very slowly, while lace sticks in tattered sheets and clumps everywhere.
This is unlike even most American versions of any Barleywine I've had, and it's as much like a DIPA. Hops are at the forefront and take over as the dominant force, though there's plenty of malt support. Every sniff and every sip is a hit of pine. Underneath is citrus and a more molasses-like undertone. There's lots of heavy earth as well, and some fruits coming in toward the middle. In the flavor, it seems to be on a strong base of heavier barley-like malts with lots of herb/leaf supporting and adding to the fresh sort of bitterness. Oily hop resins coat the palate from beginning to finish and, primarily in the flavor, there's a whole lot of pith and orange peel contributing to the almost-briny note some pithier beers tend to display. I may want a Barleywine to be more like, say, a Barleywine, but there's no denying it's an excellent beer nonetheless.
This beer flows smoothly, exceptionally smoothly, accompanied by a light bite of crispness sustained by a soft carbonation in a nearly full body.
