On-tap at Fat Head's in N. Olmsted, Ohio

This is a collaboration with Jackie O's. Pours a light copper; off-white head that leaves great lacing and retention. Aromas are amazing. Straight up dank! It's loaded with grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. Tons of citrus. Very tropical as well. Caramel malts are there, but they take a backseat. The hops shine in the aromas and flavors. Tastes amazing as well. More citrus. Tons of grapefruit along with some orange zest and lemon zest. Subtle hints of pine. More mango and pineapple. There's a leafy earthiness going on. Some caramel in the mix. It has a subtle malt background, but once again the hops dominate in a great way. Mouthfeel is wonderful. It's full-bodied and extremely creamy; fluffy active carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. This is truly dangerously drinkable.

Bravo. This is one of the best barleywines I've ever had. It's up there with some of the best beers I've had all year. It's extremely hop forward and makes you forget that you're even drinking a barleywine. It borderlines being a DIPA. Wonderful use of mosaic hops. This has that Fat Head's signature hop profile that people love. I'm simply blown away. Highly recommended if given the opportunity.

Pours a deep copper color with a white head and plenty of lace. Aroma is big on malts and has a tropical hop element. Well balanced and hoppy for a Barleywine, this I could drink all day until it got the best of me. Just a hint of alcohol given the strength quite an achievement. Overall, yet another world class brew from Fat Heads.
