“The Wolfe” is an English style Barley Wine, the Simpson Golden Promise, Caralight, and Bairds Carastan malts give this beer a deep golden hue, with lots of complex malt flavors. The English WGV and Willamette hops balance it out giving it a classic English hop character. Hop Valley’s first Barley Wine, “The Wolfe” is prime for winter sippin’!

On tap at Belmont Station. Pours a cloudy copper color with a medium white head. A big fruity nose, some sweet candy and citrus hops. Pine, sweet toffee, some fruit cake, heat throughout. Good.

Tap @ HAF 2013... Poured hazy amber-ish orange. Pretty bitter and super hoppy for an "English" style barley wine. Some malt sweetness with caramel tones too. Noticeable booziness in the finish.

On draught at 2013 Holiday Ale Festival 12/07/13. Dark golden amber color. Aroma is citrus and caramelized hops. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, citrusy hops, and a note of pine bitterness. A fairly malty barleywine, not as intense as others.
