bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours amber/copper with an off-white head that’s rather foamy. Aromas of burnt caramel and aged hop. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is more citrus/resin than anything, but some good caramel is underneath. This stuff is really hoppy for a barley wine. Killer ale.

hopscotch (9550) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Bottle… Mostly clear, burnt orange ale with thousands of minute yeast particles suspended throughout the body. Small, fizzy, white head. The subtle bouquet offers malty, fruity aromatics of caramel and a mingling of dark fruit, fuzzy fruit and tropical fruit. Full-bodied and chewy with bristly carbonation. Caramely and sweet with understated, earthy, hop bitterness. Finishes mostly sweet with a rumor of acidity.
