Review from notes, sampled 1/13/2008 Pours a crystal clear copper color with a reddish orange hue when held up to the light. Meager head dissipates to lace on the glass. Aroma is piney, grapefruity, citrusy hops, some alcohol and a faint caramel malt in the background. Tastes like it smells. Bit of a hop bite on the tongue and in the aftertaste. Body is a bit thinner than I expected, not much malt going on here. Overall its an ok Barleywine, the alcohol is well hidden by the hops. I would have liked a bit more of a malt backbone.

mixmasterob (879) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 10, 2011
September 2009 bottle. Muddy brown pour with a nice big fluffy white head. Aroma was sweet caramel malts, lots of piney hops, lemon peel and a some heat. Flavors were semi-sweet malts, great hop presence throughout. The finish consisted of light yet lingering bitterness, dry. Absolutely smooth as can be, super drinkable. A fantastic Barley Wine from Red Hook.

For a barley wine beer I was not expecting a smooth tasteful beer I could enjoy to the last drop. This beer has defied my barley wine perspective making it one of my favorite redhook ales of all time

I am not usually a barleywine fan. And here comes the but... this one doesn’t over alcohol me and I can still taste the original beer! Granted I did not age this three years and that might change my rating but this works for me right here and now. Grapefruit taste from start to finish. Nice sweetness that lingers after the bitterness leaves. The best of the limited releases from Redhook.

Decent head for a barleywine of varying sized bubbles that surprisingly does not last all that long. Sweet caramel aroma with lots of malts, brown sugar, ethanol and a bit of smoke. Color is a nice crimson orange. Flavor is loaded with sweet malts, caramel, a bit of spicyness and some peat. A very earthy barlewine. Pretty noticable alcohol kick and presence. Lingering smoked malts and caramel at the finish. Super smooth going down. I like this barleywine a lot.
