Notes/Commercial Description:
This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficianados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

I have decided that i do not like Barley Wine, I came in way under the average yet again on a barley wine.

This is a borderline imperial IPA. You get the big hop character in the nose, and in the first sip. The resin/pine taste turns into a toffee, sweet candy taste.
