4.58/5 rDev +15.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A – A reddish amber color, somewhat hazy and pours with a decent head that is short-lived.
S- A subtly hoppy aroma dominates, with sweet notes as well.
T – Delicious, citrus hop flavors come through with a smooth and sweet caramel finish.
M – Very smooth and modestly carbonated.
O – I tasted the 2010 vintage of this on tap during a Barleywine festival, and it was one of my favorites. The delicious hoppy and sweet flavor really set it apart from some of the fruitier barleywines.
Serving type: on-tap

3.75/5 rDev -5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A: deep autumn-copper. Thin head that clings to side of glass. Thin lacing. Clear.
S: sweet caramel. Juicy-fruit. My wife says tangerine. Small alcohol hint at the back end.
T: Dark caramel. Pine tar. Alcohol.
M: medium carbonation. Big body like Kate Upton.
O: decent barley wine. Drier than I anticipated. Good flavor. Big bitterness. Would have rated higher but the bitter lingers too long turning into an almost unpleasant flavor. Not to shy away, though.
Serving type: bottle
