look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

1 year old.
appearance: Quite hazy dark orange-brown. Impressive plush off white head. Thick, messy lacing.
smell: piney hops are prominent. Some bright fruit and caramel.
taste: More piney hops up front. A rather thin taste and a bitter, dry finish.
overall: I thought a year back would do more for this guy. Interesting and complex. Alcohol well hidden. If you dig American Barleys that are hopped up more than most Dipa's you'll probably dig this. Personally I prefer my Barley's more malt centric.
