COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rogue and North Coast Brewing Co. have joined forces with us to recreate a craft beer classic.

A hoppy citrus aroma radiates from this pale amber Barley Wine Ale. Its sturdy malt backbone is balanced with clean bitterness. Finishes pleasantly without overpowering.

On tap, pours a clear dark golden color with a medium off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of citrus, caramel, toffee and spicy yeast Iím assuming a Belgian strain. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is light and smooth with good carbonation. Overall this is the best in my opinion of the 3 class of 88 barleywines. This was the most balanced. I tried all 3 on 1 night

Refreshing barleywine, emphasizing the taste though not true bitterness of the hops. Good drinkability. Similar to an aged American strong.Fuller mouthfeel.

Linnet (1324) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2015
Earthy hops, marmalade, slightly citric, ABV noticable, but not boozy, complex and intruiging. Amber colour, medium off-white head, lacing. Big bit, big sweetness, big everything, lovely and typically American, supe

Split wood, thistle, toffee nose, volatile. Cloudy amber, thin head. Overripe orange, oak, lemon zest. Some oxidation, with subtle toffee notes on the back end. Full body, hot, moderate carbonation. A year old, but might need another year.

mkel07 (4343) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 181014. 5 star beer all the way. Big bold flavours of toffee and burnt caramel. Fills the mouth with awesomeness. A beer that you would from three great breweries.

"Brilliant orange color, clearer than most. Is about as barleywine like as stoic is quad like. That said, stoic is my favorite beer called a quad, even if it is nothing like others in the style. This barleywine has lots of big, hoppy IPA qualities, but thatís too easy. So fruity that I was thinking Belgian yeast esters, though thereís not really any of the spice. Iíve never had a beer with this combo of qualities. Unique for sure, and very enjoyable. I canít think of it as an elite barleywine, cause its not what Iíd go for when Iím in the mood for one, but it is a great beer - labels be damned. Canít wait to try the other two versions :)

onceblind (5720) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Slightly hazy copper under a thin lasting off-white head. Lovely nose of hoppy citrus and plums and dates with a rich pseudo-amber malt backbone. Huge body and flavor profile featuring dates and piney hops and citrus rind, with an earthy-sweet biscuit undertone. A hint of raisin booziness throughout, but that biscuit lager-malt tone is super prevalent.
