3.58/5 rDev -9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Had on tap @ Driftwood, Plymouth. Poured into a tulip glass
Appearance: red-brown in color, 1/2 inch head, clear, moderate carbonation
Smell: piney and citrus hops, toffee and earth
Taste: Follows the nose piney and citrus hops, toffee, earth, with caramel
Mouthfeel: medium bodied for the style, low carbonation, sweet start with bitter middle and dry bitter end
Overall: An enjoyable American barleywine. Plenty of hop flavor to go around with some stick sweet malts. Not the first American barleywine I would reach for but it is pretty tasty.
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
