The Bruery
California, United States

Style: American Barleywine

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our spin on an American-style barley wine, and we we say "our spin", we mean it's super hoppy. Dry hopped with Simcoe, Centennial and Sterling hops, a real piney and citrusy flavor shines through the dark, caramelly malt backbone. Some may think of it as more of a double IPA than a barley wine, we just think its delicious.

ABV: 9%, IBU: 80, SRM: 30, Release: One time only

A : Poured a hazy amber color with a dirty white cap. It sports some good head retention and good lacing

S: Big pine hop presence, Christmas trees with a hint of citrus and and brown sugar

T: Big pine start to finish, perhaps juniper, definitely hop forward with a caramel/toffee base. This beer has some moderate heat, moderate bitterness and dry on the finish with a lingering caramel/pine presence. This beer honestly reminded me of vintage Doggie Claws.

M : Medium bodied, medium-high on carbonation, dry, warm, a little sweet but still very hop forward and its packed full of faded hops which gives it a chewy feel

O: Not bad.

A: Pours a murky brown with hints of red in there when the light hits it. Two full fingers of marshmallow like head. Sticky lacing. Bottle conditioned.

S: Piney. Earthy. Old hops. Sweet bready malts. Some hints of toffee behind it all. Some booze, still.

T: Surprised that I still get some hop bitterness at the front of the tongue. Big piney hop flavors. Earthy and herbal. Leads into that big malt bill, which produces notes of sweet caramel and nuttiness. Some slight toffee and almost woody notes (this is not oak aged). Finish is fairly dry. Lingering bitterness. Slight alcohol burn.

M: It's full bodied. Not overly chewy like a RIS.
