A hop-heavy barleywine bordering on DIPA territory. Citrusy and fruity hops, honey and bready malts. Dry, bitter, little alcohol. An interesting take on the style, but not exactly to my liking.

L: slightly hazy copper tinted amber under a 1/2" cream colored cap with fair retention.

S: alcohol, dried fruit, ripe stone fruit, a trace of caramel and malt. I

T: Stone fruit, tropical fruit, caramel malt and light spice lead the flavors meeting a big assertive citrus pith bitterness by mid-palate quickly joined by alcohol, malt and fruit. The bitterness is medium to medium high, the alcohol is medium and the fruit is medium high.

F: The alcohol is not hot or harsh. The beer is full bodied with low to medium low carbonation and moderate alcohol warming.

O: For as big of a beer as this is, it is deceptively easy to drink.

Poured from a can, a cloudy orange with an small off white head that faded as quickly as it poured but left behind a nicely laced glass.
Aroma has some spice, fruit, molasses and hops.
Flavors are quite similar.
Smooth and creamy on the tongue with a slightly bitter finish.
I'vs not had many Barleywines so I'm not real familiar with the style, but without reading the can I would have thought this was an IIPA. That being said, I'll look for this again. Awfully good stuff.

Looks fantastic a dark gold color. The smell reminds me of apple cider but hips are present. The taste was underwhelming in my opinion. It was bitter and hoppy to the point that other flavored are drowned out. It felt like it started as a barley wine and just ended up becoming an ipa. Not a terrible beer and at 10% it definately packs a punch, but unless i got a great deal probably wouldn't buy this again
