COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap @ Brewery. Enjoyed it as part of their flight. Plenty of orange zest and grapefruity-ness. Suprisingly citric/hoppy for a barley wine, but very enjoyable overall. Best beer of theirs.

Gorgeous amber pour. An inkling of a foamy white head. Spicy, fresh hops, plums, and white sugar on the nose. Good flavors. Very drinkable for the ABV. Pine, sweet malt, deep fruit. I don't like this much hop presence in a barley wine, but it is a delicious beverage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can from Biggie Wine & Liquors. Cloudy burnt orange appearance with a small beige head and sticky lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, toffee, fruity esters, candy sugar, bread, piney hops and light citrus. Similar flavor, rich, fruity and malty with mild sweetness and light bitterness. Medium to full body with a smooth, creamy feel and soft carbonation. The alcohol is pretty well hidden, making this lightly hopped barley wine pretty easy to drink.

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a nice deep clear gold body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, a dash of sort of grainy malts and then faint pine hoppiness. The taste come across kind of malty and then a little doughy with a quick spike of sweet dark fruity esters that seem a tad out of place. And then it gets very pine like amid all of the sweetness and bit of fruity esters that are going on midway and into the finish. This is an interesting barleywine but it lacks a bit of harmony as the brighter esters dont meld all that well with the other notes. Im guessing this will improve with age.

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 wasnt 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.

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
