12oz into a tulip. About 1 and a half years old, probably.

A: Pours a slightly murky dark orange with a nice white head.

S: Mellow pine resin and candi sugar, light booze, papaya, a bit leafy.

T: Hops still going strong, but probably have mellowed a bit since the release. Grapefruit juice, tree sap, resinous, sweet grain, light grassy bitterness, tangerine, biscuit malt.

M: Medium-bodied with light carbonation.

O: Still a good hoppy barleywine, but I don't see any reason to age this one. If they brew it again I'll pick it up fresh.
