The Ripper is the Green Jack Brewing Company’s champion Barley Wine. Inspired by Belgian tripel ales this multi-awarding winning brew is dangerously drinkable. Rich amber in colour Ripper is sweet and fruity with a warming finish.

Bomber from Real Ale Co.. Hazy golden amber with a large pillowy head. Boozy apples and a touch of pear. Light mineral. Tobacco. Only moderate sweetness for style. Lingering bitter end. Not bad and not a barley wine in the classic sense.

TimE (3092) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 7, 2014
Dark golden amber color. A touch sweet malty nose with apples, pears and hay notes. Very malty, lots of apples and pears. The finish is very boozy and a bit unbalanced. A bit hard to drink as it is too sweet and not balanced. A boozy malty beverage that doesn’t impress.

Cask at the Reading beer festival. Amber. Rich toffee and lots of fruitiness. Heady and sweet but well balanced. A good beer to drink slowly and carefully at the end of the evening.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2014
Aroma - oaken booze, alcohol, a definite oily hop quality Appearance - orange body color; cloudy haze, there is some sediment possibly protein breaking down; head sets up rocky about 2 1/2" and the color is Wheat Brown Taste - toffee presence is buried under boozy oak barrel liquor flavor. A musty funk as well Palate body is medium; texture is slightly oily, some vinous liquor, and a little slick; carbonation is average; finish is boozy of oaken barrel liquor charring Not sure if this is actually a Barleywine ~ it’s kind of confusing.

Barreras (931) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 8, 2014
Pours an amber color with a soft fruity aroma. A slight caramel taste with a strong cask taste left on the palate after the swallow. A slight high alcohol flavor that lingers a little but gives a good burn. Overall a good Barley Wine.

Orange amber pour, aroma of hops and caramel, flavor of alcohol hops fruit and toffee. Not a bad beer but entirely unclear how it counts as a barleywine...

Garrold (1081) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Cask at SIBA Beer X. Lovely looking, clear amber. Bubbly, lasting, white head. Light caramel. Some boozy fruit. A lick of saltiness. Warmth on the palate. One to take time over.

On tap at Bangers & Lace. Pours a near clear deep amber orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of sweet grains, light caramel, grass and pine. Flavor is also a bit hoppy for a Barleywine with pine notes but is balanced by sweet grains and caramel.
