definitely an american style barleywine, rusty but clear in color, short tan head, and a nose just bursting with citrusy hops, tons of bitterness, and not all the english style sweetness that the style usually shows. i was amazed how light this poured at the brewery, barely copper, but its nose did not lack intensity like the pour did. its so hoppy, almost like an enormous ipa, without much grain aromas at all. a little toast on the front end of the flavor, but it isnt sweet at all, a surprisingly dry barleywine overall, but i miss the depth the richer grain bill provides. its overly simple for me, and with all these hops on the back end, its not a beer i care to let warm up much by slow sipping. i want to drink it down before the bitterness ramps up anymore and before the booze comes out even more than it already is. i like this as a strong ale, but as a barleywine i need more layers and a lot more body.

First off, I have no idea why this is referred to as a Barleywine by CM...it's a DIPA. Nothing about it suggests American BW but hey, I'm not the brewer. Subjectively the beer is great, but it's not a Barleywine.

Looks great, clingy lacing and a medium amber color.

Smells like a hob bomb, which it is. All WC "C" hops, Centennial, Chinook & Citra so you get Citrus rind, slight pine and just dank hop oils.

Taste is all about the hops and follows the aroma. Loads of bitter, citrusy, leafy hop flavors pretty much pummels the tongue. Great body, easy to throw down for a 10% heavy-weight. Malt flavors are waaay mild and I just get some grainy, caramel-y notes in the background. Finish has oily, sticky hop notes and is bone-dry.

Recommended. Again, it's tough to rate as it's a very solid beer, but maybe their interpretation of barleywine is different than, well, most everyone else's.
