3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Draft - nose is fruity as in apricots. Sip adds fruit flavor with an almost ripe character. Very fruity for the style. Dangerous for the drinkabilty considering the ABV.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy dark golden /orange color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have orange citrus, caramel, herbal, lightly toasted bread, mild bitterness. I like more malt sweetness with my barley wines. A bit thin.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruit, sweet malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate complex sweet flavor with a medium complex sweet finish of moderate duration. This is was a good soft for style beer.

Caramel, lightly spicy malt. Dried fruit, raisin. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. A hint of the alcohol. Solid, english-style barleywine ale. Some nice lemony orange citrus hops. Hint of butteriness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster. Looks decent; light for the style though. A slightly hazy lighter golden orange with white lacing. Smells sweet and malty with some fruity notes as well. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep gold with very little head that doesn’t hold well; sweet aromas of honey and sugar and peaches and lemon grass; full on the tongue with a syrupy sweet finish. Reminded me greatly of SN Big Foot.. which was surprising given this is styled as a triple but then I looked it up and it is also proclaimed as a barley wine

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Swing top bomber from Sparrow, 1/29/13,
as Green Jack Rippa, Batch #86, Bottled 08 10 13
Aroma: The nose is fruity and malty, some apple, butterscotch, caramel, and English hops
Appearance: This one pours a somewhat murky looking reddish-orange color with a thick, lasting beige head that leaves a great, fairly coasting lace left on the glass
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet up-front, caramel/butterscotch, with a light-medium bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a soft mouthfeel, and a semi-dry finish
This one is a pretty interesting beer. I thought it was pretty tasty. I can see how this would work really well on cask, which I assume was the main goal. Tasty stuff.
