4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Amber colour, moderate head, slightly off-white. Lovely aroma of fruity and resinous American hops, malts in the background. Excellent and well balanced flavour, distinct American hops throughout, but not too extreme. There is a sufficient malty backbone to support the hops. Not too sweet. Jolly good!

On tap on at Firkin. Slightly hazy ice-tea colored served with asmall but very creamy whitish colored head. Aroma is nearly nonexistent, just a little orangey citrus and a little alcohol. Taste though is slightly sweet, very smooth, with notes of citrus, orange, and mildly stewed tea. Very smooth. Alcohol is well hidden. A very nice, very smooth barley wine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours red amber. Tastes like rye IPA...unexpectedly so. I love rye IPAs...so this was a pleasant surprise...but the most bitter portions of the brew seemed to collect on the back of my palate. The brew tasted good at the start...but down hill from there.
