Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a medium reddish orange with a thin, light khaki head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt, plums, peaches and a hint of citrus. Flavor follows, with dry caramel malt, mixed stone fruit, piney and lightly citrus hops. Piney hop and toffee finish, a little spicy. Medium bodied with light to moderate creaminess. It's been a while since I've had an real American style barleywine, I guess it's not a popular style any more. This is very much a hopped barleywine, rather than a glorified triple IPA; the malt body is dark fruit and malty. The fruit flavors are not easy to parse out, but the overall effect is flavorful. The hops are mostly piney with a light citrus overlay, NW leaning. I'm no longer aging hopped barleywines, and I'm glad I'm drinking this fresh. The hops have a nice herbal quality and meld well with the fruit. This is a well made and tasty American style barleywine and actually one of the more memorable ones. Well done.
