Our American-style Barleywine undergoes a three hour boil to intesify the caramel malts and the enormous Pacific Northwest hop charge. The result is a rich, estery brew with toffee notes and citrus hop flavors layered throughout. Enjoy this brew fresh today or lay it down for aging to see how the flavors of each vintage evolve.

Hazy ruby/amber. 4.5cm of dense, tan head. Vegetal nose- like root, stem, and leaves pulled from the ground. Flavor of resinous hops and sweet caramel/toffee malt. Full body, balanced carbonation. Very good.

Boutip (5940) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Naven: Poured a medium brown/burgundy color ale with a great foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt and light dry fruit is offset by some west coast hops. Taste of sweet caramel malt and subtle dry figs is balance with some citrus hops. Body is about average with some great carbonation and no alcohol was noticeable. Well done and I have to confess that I did enjoy this even though I usually prefer my barleywine with more malt profile then hop profile.

The look of this beer is fairly light with little head. Plenty of kick to this one though. Pretty good aroma of hops and alcohol, but it is not too pungent. The flavor isn’t as good as other barley wines out there but the finish is wonderfully mellow. Not a fantastic barley wine but it will improve with age.

hayduke (4947) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 16, 2007
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a rich red to brown color with a medium and spongy off-white head that left good lacing. Big rich nose of caramel and fruity hops. Morhtfeel is smooth and hides the alcohol well. Flavors of caramel, fruits, and some bitterness. Good dry bitter finish. Overall a well balanced and delightful barley wine that should only get better with age. I need to get some more of these for the cellar

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle poured a redish brown color with a small off white head. Aroma was major caramel and mild amounts of hops. The flavor was all caramel with a good bitterness and slightly sweet finish. The alcohol is hidden very well for such a young Barleywine. From what the brewer told me the years can be seen with a magnifying glass in the word "Vintage" and the slash in the paper marks that year.

jazz88 (2669) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Bottle. A deep reddish brown color with a thick foamy tan head. A strong hoppy (pine, grapefruit) sweet caramel full aroma. Rich caramel, floral and hoppy flavors with a long bitter aftertaste. Smooth, rich and tangy hop filled caramel finish. Quite nice.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Pours a clear ruby-brown color with a persistent light tan head. Decent hop and caramel aroma. No discernible alcohol aromas. Moderate grapefruity hop taste with some caramel sweetness in the middle. Slight citric bitter hop finish. Not as hoppy as some west coast barleywines, but still very enjoyable and tasty.

Last bottle from my visit to Oak Tree Liquors. Green Flash barleywine has a fruit-plum aroma, mahogany body and thick, pillowy head. When first opened the citrus bitterness had a sharp domination over the caramel malts. But as the bottle warmed a bigger, better, stronger flavors were evident. I suggest only chilling this barleywine to 50F. Two observations about the label; it stated this was a barelywine "style ale" and the word "vintage" was present but no date next to it. Not sure what the signifcance of either was on the label.
