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.

Fresh growler from The Daily Growler. Pours a gray orange color with perfect head and lacing. This is described as a double IPA by the brewery, not a barleywine. Nose is piney, with citrus, and some malts. Taste is very similar, finishes nice and biter, but doesn?t overdo it. This is very impressive, wish it would come around more often!

This was described as a Double IPA/Blonde Barleywine. Really big juicy and hoppy beer. Definitely gets most of its flavor from hops but there is a really nice big bready backbone. Really great crossover style beer and very drinkable with no trace of alcohol for 10%. It does creep up on you

Draft from Dirty Frankís. Pours a cloudy orange-gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, tropical fruits, caramel malts, and honey. Flavor of resinous hops, citrus and tropical fruits, caramel malts, pineapple, and pine resin. Medium body, fruity, sweet. Low carbonation.

12 oz draft at the brewery in Columbus, Ohio. This was sold as a "Triple IPA", though the bartender did mention it had some Barley Wine characteristics. The pour is a hazed cheddar orange with a small off white head. Thick sheeting of lace are left behind as the beer goes down. The aroma is citrus hop, floral, and then a decent amount of honey sweetness. The taste is honey floral sweet, clove yeast, then a solid shot of booze in the back. A bit overwhelming for my tastes, the honey cloyed a bit. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a weird honey sweet clove booze finish. Pretty unrefined and over the top for me.
