look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

On tap at Tipsy Cow in Madison, WI. 10oz poured into a tulip glass today, 3/25/2014.

App- dark brown body with a one finger white head, decent lacing nothing special

Smell- citrus, grapefruit, orange, and some caramel. No mistake though this is hoppy as hell and not close to being true to the style.

Flavour- super hoppy, dank and bitter with a lot of grapefruit qualities and a fairly minimal caramel toffee contribution. This is not subtle at all.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, good carbonation, nothing special. Fairly bitter nothing much else and very sweet here. Dry and sweet finish.

Overall- not that special of an American barleywine. Overly hopped as you'd expect from a Three Floyds beer.
