Draft at Lemon Hill. Pours a clean amber with thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Nose of caramel, honey, roasted malt, citrus, pine and dark fruits. Full body, a little hot. Lot of good hop flavor for a barley wine

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a large foamy orange-tan head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel, tobacco, bitter piney hops and a touch of spruce. The flavor was sweet and malty with caramel, tobacco, piney hops, a moderate bitterness and a bit of cherry cough syrup. Long sweet pine and caramel finish with lingering bitterness. Moderately full bodied. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle. Cloudy orange-brown with a thin off white ring. Has a tart-sour, sharp fruity aroma. Light carbonation. Body is a little thick and almost syrup like. Fairly smooth with a dry and slightly bitter taste that stays mainly on the roof of the mouth. Some woody and earthy notes. Hides the alcohol well. No harsh aftertaste or burn. Nice warmth after the finish. OK but I would have preferred more flavor and less bitterness.

Deep red-brown, small tan head. Aroma citrus and pine hops. Full body. Some alcohol presence. Fairly sweet but the finish is on the drier side. I think a good balance of hops and malt. Solid.

Versa nel bicchiere di color arancio scuro, leggermente velato; la schiuma è sottile, densa e leggera, ma costante durante tutta la bevuta. L’aroma è di caramello, malto, melassa, luppolo, agrumi, alcool e frutta. Al palato si distingue chiaramente sapore di malto e caramello, con note agrumate e di luppolo. E’ molto dolce, poco carbonata, con corpo viscoso; in bocca rimane oleosa, finale da Imperial IPA grazie alla forte presenza di luppolo.
