Bottle 241 of 500 poured into a snifter
A - pours a hazy bright orange with a half finger of off white head. Head has good staying power and provides a small amount of lacing. Head is composed if small bubbles.
S - opens up with a lot of citrus aromas. Lots of orange peel. Citrus notes quickly make way to vomit aromas. As the beer warms the vomit aroma intensifies.
T - drinks more like a malty IIPA than a barleywine. Hops take the center stage with a lot of citrus found in the nose dominating the initial flavor. Some caramel flavors pick up mid palate after the tongue is blasted by hops on the front end justnto give headway back to a citrus hop dominated finish. A medium bitterness lingers in the late palate. The vomit smell isn't as prevalent in the flavor but still exists in the mid and late palate, especially as the libation warms.
M - medium-light bodied. A good amount of carbonation with a drier example of the style makes it slightly pricky on the tounge and slightly abrasive.
D - drinkability is extremely low. Significant fermentation issue flavors paired with an overly dry, slightly over carbonated example makes this more difficult to drink than doing discrete mathematics work back in college!!
Overall, quite a disappointing beer, especially for the $12 price point and the hype the brewery put behind the limited run of 500 bottles. I'm not sure if there is some infection or the yeast is stressed so much, but there are obvious flaws in the beer. The visuals indicate a lack of crystal and dark malts that provide complexity in most better BW's. I'm not sure this would ever be a good BW as brewed, even without the fermentation issues because of an apparently poor recipe design for the style. Drain poured 3/4 of the bottle unfortunately because of fermentation issues.

Great up and coming Columbus Brewery. Limited realease bottle. Definitely stop by this spot if in Columbus , Ohio
Intial smell of a hoppy beer but doesn't reflect in the taste. Nice medium orange color. Great after taste. Can wait to get my hands on more!
