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

On tap from a growler tapped today cloud gold with a thick white head. Aroma is sweet pine trees. Flavor is divine. A caramel dipped evergreen. An extreme brew done exceptionally from CBC.

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!

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.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2013
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.

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.

malrubius (1711) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 7, 2014
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.

On tap at dirty franks. In snifter and deep gold color. Little head. Billed as double ipa. Tastes a bit strong but good sweet finish. Moderate hoppiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (8140) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2010
On draught at the brewpub, served in a chalice. The beer is a hazy bright yellow-orange color with a medium thin and foamy off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings and spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of hops and grapefruit, plus some sweet malt in the background. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness left behind. I would have picked this as a IIPA 10 out of 10 times, easily one of the most hoppy Barley Wines I have tried. Style interpretation aside though it is a good beer.

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.
