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 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.
