22oz bottle poured into tulip - 2008 vintage, thanks to crushedvol
Pours a slightly hazed brilliant copper red color. Some hues of auburn and gold shine through with decent clarity. Thin beige head slowly fades out into some wispy film and spotted lacing.
There's still a notion of hops in here, surrounded by some citric peel and orange. Bready and malty with some sweet caramel and syrup. Hint of fruit on the back end with a warming alcohol sensation.
Slightly bitter up front with some lingering pine touches. Hints of grapefruit and citrus with a faint fruit sweetness. A touch of cherry before the burly backbone comes through with bread crust and caramel. Slightly sweet, but still balanced with the alcohol warmth towards the finish.
Fuller body, decent carbonation, sticky and lingering on the tongue. Time has done this beer really well - I was surprised to still get a little kick from the hops which worked really well with the rest of the profile. I definitely want more of this.

Blue wax to tulip.
A. Dark copper with amber hues. Cloudy. 2 finger egg shell head that retreats to a fine bubble rim. Nice laces.
S. Moderately fragrant. Big time floral hops w/ a citrus finish. This beast is certainly going to be a hoppy barley wine (big surprise).
T. A little sweet, a lot bitter. Strong hops flavor with a certain presence of barley wine = apples, plums, figs, malts, pears, and persimmons.
M. Very thick. High carbonation. Fairly smooth.
O. Very nice. This is certainly a 3F ale in respect tot the level of hops. Which are very high. This is a great ale to share. Very strong and very well crafted. I certainly recommend this ale.
