13 oz draught, Pint Room. Surprisingly light-colored; golden-copper, smaller white head. Aroma heavy pine and citrus, some caramel. Flavor is a punch in the face; over the top too much hops, Jesus. 10% abv doesnít show at all in the flavor, but you can certainly feel it. Pint Room had this under their "Barleywine" section and this is a terrible misclassification--itís an IIPA and nothing else. Poorly balanced.

Growler from Roziís in Lakewood. Fruity hops with dank resins, some herbage. Copper with thin white head. Flavor hits real hard with resin and weed like hops. Lots of alcohol and some tropical fruit . Pretty tasty. Big.

Growler from Save On. Bright clear gold with lasting flat head and lace. Citrusy bready lemon and orange aroma. Mildly toasted honey peach apricot malty fruity sweetness with assertive citrus rind and some resiny woody grassy hops in long bitter slightly alcoholic finish. Full very soft body. Excellent DIPA. Barleywine? No, I donít think so.

Draft a few times, most recently at Big Beers and Barley Wines Dayton. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a big hoppy component around a decent malt base. Caramel, lightly toasted, citrus, resin and earthy hops that donít make it easy to classify. They list it as an American Barley wine and the site has it as an Imperial/Double IPA. Either way it is tasty and worth a try if you get the chance.

From a growler. Dank, grass, floral, citrus aroma. Sticky resin pour, light golden color with a little white head, lots of lacing on the glass. Nice beer to sip in large qty.ís, goes down easy. Not sure why this is tagged as a barleywine, malts play little role in this beer. Good beer, supped up version of Bodhi, enjoyable and would recommend.

Pours an orange golden color with a thin white head that doesnít last too long. Aroma is sweet, citrus fruity, hippy and a little malty. Flavor is hoppy up front with heavy sweet citrus fruits but the finish is nice and malty caramel with maybe some plums. Mouth feel is sweet carbonation is average. Overall this is a phenomenal beer.

Pours gold with no head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and sweet malt. Taste is tropical fruit, citrus, pineapple and sweet malt. Syrupy and sweet yet bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

32 ounce growler picked up from Blacklick Wine and Spirits earlier today. They just tapped the keg yesterday so I assume this is a fresh batch. Served in a Dogfish Head IPA glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a couple inch white head. The head sticks around for a long time, and thereís also a lot of lacing. Aroma is very nice, the brew mostly smells like citrusy (tropical fruit, grapefruit, orange peel) and pine hops, and some bready malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís the addition of some peppery spice and herbalness. The tropical fruit bittersweet finish lingers for a very long time. Itís creamy and slick with a good amount of carbonation. Well, Iím very happy I picked up a growler of this on the way home from work. Definitely worth trying if you come across some! $10.99 a growler fill.

On tap at the Brew Kettle. This beer is a fairly clear gold with a minimal head. Aromas if honey and resin with a boozy edge to them. Flavor has none of the resin, though. It starts out sweet (honey) heads to hoppy (apricot and fruit) and ends hot (booze). This is a pretty nice beer to have on tap in March when winter is hanging on.
