3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Batch #77 [A] Caramel, and a light candied citrus. [A] A hazy golden color, with a white, retentive head. [F] Some astringent booze on end. Flavor is cherries, dark fruit, citrus, caramel. Pilsner malt is noticeable. [P] A touch syrupy and over carbonated. Fizzy mouth. Not something to put down quickly. [O] Reminds me of a DFH beer. Like a toned down 120 min. Not sure if I would necessarily categorize this as a barleywine. I made the mistake of ignoring the bottle, and pouring the sediment in, causing an uproar of foam in the process. This is one for the cellar to temper, and cool down. Way to hot for me to enjoy fresh. Campfire beer.

Hair of the Dog, Portland. Bright, clean gold with pretty white foam. Hazy yeast, full sweet mouth. Perfect balance of cream, alcohol and yeast. Just a terrific, landmark beer. Great bread, a touch lactic and full rich alcohol.

Bottle from K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is strong fruit (apple, pear) and caramel. A tad sweet but incredible mouthfeel and the right amount of rye and hoppy bitterness.

Very great beer, plenty of flavour and aroma to raw grain, brown sugar, biscuit and a slight bitter hint, which balances to the perfection.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rating #1677 - #CBC2015 - Beer 62 - On tap at HOTD w/ Ferris. Hazy brassy coloured pour, bubbly head, not much lacing. Aroma is sweet sweet citrus and honey - mango, peach, vanilla. Taste is an alcoholic hoppy punch, lots of IBUs tempered with sweetness, and a ton of alcohol on the palate, but not thoroughly undisguised. Just a big bold beer for flavour-lovers. Awesome.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hair of the Dog Fred on tap at Imazato. A mellow brassy gold. A juicy fresh orange citrus aroma easily to confuse with an IPA. The taste is malty and gives a sort of caramel spread and orange blossoms flavor. After the hoppy bouquet the more malt forward flavor caught me by surprise. This is a damn solid beer and in no way reveals it’s huge 10% ABV. Had some in a snifter and it totally boosted the taste.
