3.45/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: a deep ruby red color. two to three fingers of a tannish head. fairly hazy. leaves a slight ring around the edges

Smell: very light citrusy hops. toasty malts. caramel malts. lots of sweetness.

Taste: orange peel hops. toasty malts. maybe some barley. sweet caramel malts. a strong hop bit. there are a lot of good flavors but they are fairly weak and sometimes kind of bland

Mouthfeel: pretty full. pretty drinkable for 11%. warming alcohol. a touch sticky

Overall: this barleywine has some good things going for it. but overall it comes off as a fairly weak flavored brew. falling in as a middle of the road barleywine

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Not writing a full review, just reminding myself to pick up a few bottles of this to keep around.

Gorgeous red, overly bitter for style, reminds me more of a IIPA, and a bit sharp/young in alcohol. Completely drinkable and delicious as is.

I see this aging well.
