3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma presents caramel, hoppy and malty tones. It pours barely translucent dark honey golden-brown with a thick and persistent fine-bubbled buff head. Flavor delivers woody hop, malty and fruity notes - this drinks more like an Imperial IPA than a barleywine. Mouthfeel features firm body and more fizz than I usually experience in a barleywine. Lawyers, guns, money - a recipe for disaster, or a good brew.

I’m with that one guy. If this is a barley wine its a fail. If you call this a pale ale it is on point! Subtle dryness malty. Not a lot of smell. If this is 10% you could get dangerious with this.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy, orangey-golden color with a huge, frothy whitish head. Copious lacing. Aroma is intense hop with strong citrus notes on a backdrop of rich cotton candy. Hints of cereal.
Taste is a blast of hop bitterness with a fruity sweet backbone. There’s a lot going on here. Medium to full body. Lively carbonation. Intriguing brew. Not much like a barleywine to me. Much more like a DIPA. Nonetheless, I like it!

Can 35,5cl / Lata 35,5cl.
@ Cervezorama 2.0, Madrid, España
A: Amber / Ambar.
T/S: Hops, fruity, sweet / Lupulo, afrutado, dulce.
This is more an Imperial IPA rather than a Barley Wine.
The score is for the beer. Not for the style.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Ok, I try to rate beer on their style. If this was suppose to be a Barley Wine then it was a major fail. Would have been better to call itself a double pale ale. Cloudy orange color with a small white head. Aroma and taste was spruce and grapefruit.
