This winter warmer features a luscious fruity, caramel aroma with resinous hops and a malted toffee flavor followed by a warming finish. Drink a few of these and you’ll be saying "gunter glieben glauchen globen".

Bottle at Whole Foods, who can beat decent pours for free while grocery shopping! On a Sunday afternoon. Haha. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly sticky sweet malts, light citrus hops. The flavor is toffee, caramel, big sweet hops, medium to low bitterness. Good beer. A bit of heat.

Sampled this at Whole Foods in Beaverton
Clear golden with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine and sweet. Flavor is the same, hoppy and pine resin
Decent, still pretty hot and bitter.

Sample at First Sunday. Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium, white head. Forward hop aromas of pine and flowers, with a backbone of toffee and white bread. Strong bitterness up front, but well balanced with a lot of malty sweetness. Heavy body, with a thick, ascerbic mouthfeel. I’m not usually a fan of hop forward barley wines, but this one is quite tasty.

Nose of tropical fruit with touches of caramel. A murky orange amber pour with a mostly deminishing off-white head and no lacing. The taste is lightly sweet initially with a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. Tropical fruit, suggestions of caramel, resin/pine notes, and a comfortable alcohol warmth in the finish. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Somewhat of a dry mouthfeel. Overall, very enjoyable, but somewhat on the hoppy side of the taste profile.

22oz bottle pours a hazy pale brown color. Good yeasty malt flavors and a good amount of hops.

2009, on tap at the Red Hot. Dark amber, white head. Scent of booze and caramel. Very sweet, caramely taste. Smooth. Good beer.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 16, 2013
2011 bottle in 2013 - clear golden. Fruity honeyed cereal nose. Smooth and sweet pretty fruity and with a little heat in the back end. Very cereal driven.

Golden Orange, almost no head. Draft pour at Bailey’s. Insanely piney nose with spruce tips. Considering the ABV, the taste is quite good. More west-coast IPA than English. Very bitter, loads of west coast piney hops. The sweetness totally makes the malt backbone sort of faded and not up front. What you get is a sweet, lemon pie sort of sweetness with a touch of green grapes and lots of pine cone.

’11 bottle. Hazy and bright copper color in the glass with a slick of white foam. Aroma is dried fruit (apricot) and slight alcohol with darker malt and alcohol vapors underneath. Taste is dried fruit with alcohol heat and a backbone of darker plum and raisin with bitterness in the finish. Slightly thin mouthfeel. Doesn’t quite fit into the classic barley wine style but I rather enjoyed it more than the overall ratings would suggest.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 On draught at 2013 Hopworks Biketobeerfest 9/21/13. Hazy light golden. Spearmint and spiced aroma. Taste is heavy spice and pine hops. This aged version seemed to be a little off, so I rated it a 3.2. In the past, it has been a Hopworks favorite. Rating is partially based on past experiences.
