Dark orange with medium beige head. Aroma of hops & malt. Bitter and heavier on the hops than expected for a barley wine. Not one of my favorite barley wines.

12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a light clear amber color with a medium white head. The aroma has caramel, citrus, resin & some citrus notes. The taste is bitter upfront with a good balance all the way through the finish. Overall a very good beer.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish-brown with a off white head. Taste sweet, Carmel, brown sugar. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

Another good hoppy beer from Lagunitas. Ruby red, with a small head. Aroma of sweet malts, fruity hops, and bread. Easy to drink, not much detection of alcohol, a little too sweet on the palate, but overall a solid beer.

Pooura a light amber. Has a sweet floral hop and grapefruit aroma. Taste is a mix of citrus and floral hops and some pine. A light bitter citrus hop aftertaste.

!2 oz. bottle in a snifter. Pours a clear amber with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is mango, grapefruit, orange, pine, and a bit of sugary sweetness. I donít think any brewery creates such beautiful smelling beers as Lagunitas. Taste mostly follows the nose, with a slight malty taste at the back of the throat. That aftertaste is about the only thing reminding me that this is a barley wine. As usual, Lagunitas has created a superb brew.

Bottle into snifter glass, deep amber-copper with off-white head. Aroma of grapefruity citrus hops and heavy caramel malt. Taste is much more malty then aroma led on, notes of brown sugar, dark dried fruits (raisins, figs), bready, nutty with citrus/piney hop bitterness. Heavy body, low carbonation, syrupy, thick with sugary malty finish. Very good.

Loved this Barleywine style brew! Very hop forward with lots of sweetness and a balanced malt bill. Gonna age a bottle or two to see how it develops.
