3.71/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Hazy orange / garnet color. Very thin head that settles on the edges, slight carbonation. Big pine hops on the nose with orange citrus notes. Malty at the start but dominated by bitter, piney, sticky hops. Malt flavor remains present and candied sugar pops in a bit to help cut some pithy, citrus rind bitterness at the end. Not overly boozy and a little drying. While I've had a number of hoppy Barleywines, this one might have been better suited with some more malt and sweetness to balance it out. This was the first Barleywine I've seen in a can, which was cool.

3.65/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a semi-hazed amber with a thumb+ of cream colored head. Only slightly above average head retention & lacing

S: Pineyness & breadyness, a little pineapple & mango once warm

T: Pineapple, pineyness, a little grassiness & cakeyness up front. Leafy hops, astringency as this warms, & more pineapple, some dryness & even a bit of peppery hops. Finishes with pineapple, grassy hops & just a bit of grapefruit & some pear showing up late to the party, with just a little boozey warmth

MF: Medium bodied, delicate carbonation, warming, skews too hoppy for the style

Drinks easy, but seems more like a DIPA to me, just not true to style enough. I've had plenty of hop forward American BWs that work, this drives too far out of the lane

Good aroma and nice flavor. Fairly well balanced, alcohol is hidden well. I actually really enjoyed the beer but it was canned and there was a large amount of trub and yeast in the can, enough to make the beer rather unattractive.

3.81/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a can into a snifter, the beer is an opaque, hazy, bright, copper coloring with no head. Aromas of booze forward, with sugary sweetness, tropical fruits, caramel, toffee, vanilla, tangy cream, woody notes, subtle hops bitterness, floral highlights, apricots, and bready qualities. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with a rich caramel and toffee blend, with subtle charred wood notes, tangy cream highlights, booze undertones, subtle hops spice and bitterness, and earthy notes. Pretty slick and mid-bodied, with a warmth building towards the end. The aftertaste is more of the rich sweetness and warmth, with a slick, lingering finish.

Bitter, bready, hides the booze. I like my barleywines on the sweeter side, but I respect this one anyway.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz can. Pours hazy reddish copper with a smallish off white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel malts, fruit and some dank, resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel and toffee with some fruit and a big resiny hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice hoppy barley wine.
