Light brown color with a small head. Aroma is very balanced. Caramel malts and detectable hops. Flavor is smooth and sweet and well balanced. Good solid flavors. Relatively easy to drink and very enjoyable. Well done Redhook!

Narnad (1472) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Found this at my local liquor store. 9-08-09 bottle. Pours a clear copper-brown color, very low carbonation and a one inch off-white head. Aroma permeates the air as soon as itís poured. A very pungent spicy, citrus hops note hits the nose first, a very strong blossom sweetness in the middle and it takes a whiff or two but there is a very strong, under lying pine/resin hops note. The aroma really gets you excited to take the first sip. Flavor starts off with a very sweet blossom, orange and caramel note. These flavors fade a bit to a mild resin note with a smooth alcohol note and a mild bitter sweet ending. Body is very heavy with a sticky, slick texture. A good amount of lacing is left by this low carbonation brew. Overall the aroma on this brew is great, flavor follows up pretty good with the great pricing for a barley wine (very cheap), it makes for a quality beer to enjoy again and again.

22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear deep copper color with a one finger thick light tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is esters, floral hops, and light toffee. Flavor is sweet malt, esters, and hops. Medium to full body. A nice beer.

bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Pours a clear amber reddish color with a moderate beige head that leaves a nice sticky lacing. Aroma is of distinct citrus notes, with pine, floral, and caramel underlying it. Taste features hop bitterness up front, with a sweet and prominent caramel to follow, and a long boozy roasted malt finish.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Pours orangish-amber with a white head. Lots of hops in the aroma as well as some caramel malt. The flavor is pretty hoppy, with grapefruit as well as pine. That being said, it is not a bitter beer, just lots of hop flavor. A good amount of sweetness but not as sweet as some other American Barleywines. Medium mouthfeel.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris Oís Kook Fest tasting.
Fairly clean amber with a very good off white head. Lots of fruity malt and plenty of caramel too. Good balancing citric hops and a decent amount of bitterness. Sweetist finish that dries nicely as it goes. Reasonably straight forward but generally a really good, suprisingly mellow barley wine that is not the usual over the top crazy fest that I have come to expect from most American takes on this style. Enjoyed it.

ben4321 (4095) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Location: 22 oz bottle from Normís, 3/8/10

Aroma: Lots of sweet fruity malt notes, dark fruits, caramel, citrus, pear, and berries
Appearance: Clear redddish-amber color with a thin off-white head and spotty lace
Flavor: Rather sweet and malty flavors up-front with a late bitter hop flavor
Palate: Relatively full bodied, it has a chewy feel to it, and has just a touch of alcohol burn
Overall Impression: This beer was better then my expectations. Itís actually quite good, a little simplistic, but solid none-the-less. I didnít expect to enjoy this one nearly as much as I did.

í07 Treblehook on tap, Barley Pub, Dover Orange amber pour with a fluffy offwhite head. Aroma is sweet candi sugar with a bit of oxidation, leading to a lightly hoppy center, some toasty caramel, burnt sugar. Alcohol is nicely masked, some nice grapefruit and caramel accents in the main body. A tasty beer, easily the best redhook im had ever.

beerguy101 (5290) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Sampled on 4/2/2010. This barleywine pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, orange, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied Barleywine. The malts are fruity, sweet, with a touch of orange and orange peel. The hops are earthy and floral. Nice carbonation. Decent balance. Some additional bottle aging will improve this beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

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.
