(Served in a tulip)
A- This beer has a slightly dense warm aged copper body with a sticky light beige head that last the full beer.

S- The green grassy hops give way to a sweet big sugary caramel malt sweetness in the finish.

T- The perfumy sweet malt leads into a ginger spice heat in the finish with some vanilla flowers that turn woody as the beer opens up.

M- The medium mouthfeel has an alcohol heat in the finish that boost the ginger heat.

O- This beer has big floral flavors mixed with big sweet malt and big alcohol warmth that is just to much for me. The ginger spice is just too big aswell. It was nice to taste but I couldn’t get through the whole glass.

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.
