Misc.: N/A

Poured a honey, caramel, mostly clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki cream, fluffy head. Some bubbly streams coming up from the bottom. Uneven spotty lacing on the sides. Above average retention on the top. (Sight - 4.25)

Pretty hoppy on the nose. Got Citra hops, floral hops, soapy pine, lime zest, tangerine, caramel, butterscotch, toffee and some roastiness. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted booziness right away. Also sweet caramel, Citra hops, butterscotch, toffee and soapy pine. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.50))

A decent effort at a barleywine. I’d have it again for sure. (Overall - 3.75)
