Also known as "Steelhead D/IIPA"...purchased a 12oz bottle from WOB...no date on the bottle so in my opinion, by the "barleywine-esqe" taste, it was past 120 days (IMHO the drop-dead date for freshness date for an D/IIPA). Now that being said, if it were labeled as an barleywine, my ratings would be much higher if it were, however, as labeled...I'll leave it as is.

Good citrus orange colored glow to the beer, smallish 1/4" white head on top. Aroma hits the wooden malt and citrus hop notes. Tad bit of sweetness.

Taste, big beer, one of the bigger ones still available in 6 pack format. There is a bunch of crystal malt here. Hops aren't taking back seat either, mostly of the C hop variety I surmise. Its a little bit sticky and thick. Alcohol is there, but not pronounced. Good format, worthy beer.

Deep orange,amber color. Head was thin, & dissipated quickly. Not much lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, orange, and bread. Flavor is malty, with a bit of citrus and pine. Resinous mouthfeel and smooth finish. Excellent beer overall
