On tap at Burger Jones Burnsville. Gorgeous amber with thin white lacing. Clings to the side. Hops forward, alcohol back. They say barley wine but I don't see it.

Bottle to pint glass. Pours a clear orange color with large amount of tan colored head. Head has medium sized bubbles. Beer settled from bottom up in a crazy fashion. Smells very hoppy and fruity. I taste tones of citrus in the fruitiness. Quite hoppy. Fair amount of lacing is present on the cup walls.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Massive pine and citrus hops. Slight cracker balances nicely. Clear dark copper with an off-white head. Taste of citrus hops pronounced with the alcohol showing just as strongly. The alcohol is not hidden, notwithstanding that the current batch has backed off the ABV. Finishes sugary sweet with a solid, bitter, quick ending.

Drank from bottle. Smell of strong hops, tropical fruits, and grass. Tastes like a well balanced hop bomb, with a brown sugar/sweet finish. Not bad

Bottle->snifter. Medium clear amber with big frothy offwhite head. A: strong pine hops, sweet caramel malt. T: boozy, sweet citrus hops with bitter pine finish. Level of hops is unexpected for the style, and is a great addition. Very very good.

12 oz bottle served in a Black Raven becher.
A: Pours a clear dark amber color with a thick and frothy cream colored head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick ring that leaves a sticky webbing of lace down the glass.
S: Notes of tangerine and melon with a smooth caramel malt body to it. A little pine, but overall pretty sweet and fruity. Nice.
T: Lots of honey dew melon and watermelon notes. Bursts of fruity citrus with a little underlying bitterness. Caramel malt sweetness with a slightly boozy finish.
M: Medium low carbonation with a sweet and fruit finish. Medium body.
O: Pretty tasty, but lacked from an overall low carbonation. Iíd love to try this on draft.

Not on the bandwagon with this one. The raw alcohol flavor is just too much in the forefront, not allowing the sweeter finish to take priority, which in my opinion would be better

Didnít know this was a barley wine before tasting it. Not a huge fan of the style. First sip I was why would they make a sweet IPA and the realized its a barley wine. If youíre into this style it wasnít bad.
