Clear amber color, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, caramel, orange, sweet malts, light alcohol. Medium to full body, tastes about what you’d expect it to - a hopped up barley wine with a fair amount of sweetness. Semi chewy, grapefruit and orange flavors in finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Super strange aroma of candies, malty and sweet. Golden almost clear color. Perfect lacing. Taste also super weird. Sweet, licorice, malty. Sweetness is very nicely countered by bitterness. Big body, quite thick and dense. Very interesting brew!
