This beer began as a celebration of our January anniversary, but it is now being incorporated into a year round offering. We use an assortment of crystal malts and throw a little Belgian Candi into the Brew Kettle to give a hearty maltiness. Dry hopping with American Hops gives this English style a refreshing American twist. Be cautious with this beer as overindulgence can result in the shit hitting the fan.

12 oz. can. Pours a thin off white head, over a dark amber (SRM 15) body, nose is light pine, resin, sweet notes, balance to the hops....taste is slightly sweet, light fruit notes, finish is bitter with pine, resin, balance to the hops.....mouth feel, medium body, alcohol warmth present, slight acidity, low carbonation. This is a simple Barley Wine, with alcohol and hops dominating. It is more of an I/DIPA than a Barley Wine. BJCP 7/3/12/3/6

Thanx Gary for bringing this one to me. Can to chalice: the appearance was a hazy red/copper color with a one finger off white foamy head that died to a film after a good minute. The smell had some sweet caramel malts, with a dank and resinous hoppiness backed up by a light dark fruitiness. As it warmed, I think there was some brown sugar here and there. The taste had a generous sweetness about the caramel and toffee. As it warmed, there was some light fruit that bled into a fairly big resiny hop finish. On the palate, this one sat right about at a medium with a decent carbonation about it. The ABV wasn’t really felt for the most part. Overall, honestly as a barleywine, uh...really, did I just have a really old can? What are you giving me Gary? I see no dates anywhere. To me, average.

12 oz can. Pours hazy reddish copper with a smallish off white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel malts, fruit and some dank, resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel and toffee with some fruit and a big resiny hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice hoppy barley wine.

Can. Pours orange/ brown with white head. Aromais malty, vanilla, wood, earthy, bread, toffee. Taste is very tropical- pineapple, sweet tropical fruits, wood, vanilla, a bit thin for a barleywine. Okay.

On tap poured a clear copper hue w/ frothy head. Big hop aromas. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ bold biter finish of lasting duration. Tastes are grassy hop, sweet malt, caramel, toast, and blood oranges. Full bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (6222) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Tap. Hazy orange amber pour with a small spotty head. Nice caramel boozy nose. Palate is too thin for the style, and it finishes bitter and not very malty. Kind of a miss here.

djd07 (3565) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2013
On tap at Petrol Station. Pours a cloudy orange copper with small quickly diminishing head. The aroma is strong floral hop and toffee. Thick mouthfeel with strong booze upfront, bitter hop, and lingering bitter finish. Decent.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear orange with a small white head and decent lacing. Caramelly, citrusy, lightly bready, somewhat spicy, grassy, juicy hoppy, lightly spicy, and floral aroma. Taste is grassy, weedy, caramel, bread, honey, orange peel, grapefruit, spice, and ganja with a big bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Not bad, but really just a double IPA, IMHO. Probably the best beer of the visit.
