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.

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.

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.
