2011 Vintage

A - Poors an amber/orange color with a eggshell colored head. Head dissipated quickly but left a ring clinging around the glass.

S - Dark Fruit with hints of citrus. Also getting some honey

T - Similar with the nose. Taste like figs and orange followed by hops. I imagine this might have been a hop bomb when it was fresh as there is still a punch from the hops with 3 years of age.

M - Medium body with nice carbonation.

O - Decent american barley wine. Not bad.

Drank one that was about a year old...not sure how the age affected the taste because i've never had this beer before.

a: cloudy, orange coloring w/ light carbonation. not much of a head developed and disappeared quickly
s: sweet apricot aroma, piney hop aroma. possibly a little spice
t: sweet taste that is quickly countered by the bittering hops. hop flavor not overpowering but balances the sweetness very well. i'm an ipa fan so i generally enjoy hops and this beer has it
m: soft without much carbonation
o: good balanced beer. it's borderline too sweet for me, but they loaded it up on hops to save the day! i will be drinking this beer again!
