Good is really sweet and sticky. Where the sweetness over powers the flavors.

Is Raul part of NASA? Because, LIFTOFF!

As this bad boi checks in at 17%, Raul gets fruity notes on the nose and a donkey kick right in the nuts with the taste. It's very smooth, but you know that you are drinking some "Apocalypse Now" type of shit. Like the name says, "good," but not slap yo mama "great."

Glad I tried it, but woo doggy!

On Tap at Alpine Beer Company

A: This is a gorgeous, clear, orange. Looks bright and fruity.

S: Like a barleywine should. The sweet, berry-like hoppiness is really powerful. Just a hint of alcohol gets through.

T: Bright, with that beautiful flavor you only get from beers with the combination of this much malt and hops. A little sweeter than some (eg. Old Guardian), but still within an appropriate balance.

M: Just a hint of alcohol, medium bodied.

D: Very drinkable.
