Pours a dark reddish-copper color with a thick head into my glass. The label offered little clue on what to expect from this ale.
Pine tar, molasses and a slight touch of citrus greet the nose. Smells almost like a barleywine.
Of course, what sets this apart from an actual barleywine is a stronger emphasis on the hops themselves. Never gets TOO hoppy though.
Pine and citrus combine with molasses at the back of the throat. Surprisingly clean finish with minimal heat.
Easier to drink than a few other examples of the style (Arrogant Bastard comes to mind) and well worth the purchase if you want to go beyond the usual cycle of IPA-DIPA-IPA (like myself).
