I had to a pick up a 22oz bottle of This Most American Of Barleywines with totally badass art on the label and a totally commensurate name printed at its bottom. Served in a pint glass it appears syrupy orange in the glass with big soda bubbles and a malty sweet aroma familiar for the style. Zow, this is a seriously hopped out barleywine. I can see what they meant about massive American style. It starts and finishes sweet, but there's a ton of IBUs in the middle. The flavors don't complement each other at all.

I think I would have liked this better as an Imperial IPA. It's not though: the malt should be lighter in color, the hop profile should be more citrus and more aromatic, and the attenuation should be crisper. No, this is just a harsh barleywine, one that borders on undrinkable. The kind of brew that makes English barleywine enthusiasts complain about how Americans have bastardized the style -- but rightly, for once.

Note: my 2014-vintage bottle claims to be 10.% alc./vol.
