Cloudy red with an off white foam. Malt nose and only hints of caramel. Good body and alcohol balance.

S_Side_Smitty (704) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2016
Pours cloudy orange-amber with a substantial off white head. Aroma is sweet & slightly muted grains. Taste is hop forward with some syrupy sweetness up front. The hops take over after that with a not-quite-citrus fruit quality and stark bitterrrrness that goes to a lengthy finish. Definitely an American style barley wine.

brokensail (15774) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 29, 2015
On tap @ Tampa Bay Brewing. Copper in color with a thin ring of white foam. Sort of on the boozy side and, of course, quite sweet. Plenty of caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. Big time gold raisin fruitiness, too. Maybe a hint of cotton candy? Light floral and woody/herbal hops. Not a winner for me.

AirForceHops (6083) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Draft at the original Tampa location. Clear ruby color with tiny head retention. Aroma is candied dark fruits, thicker caramel and a hop I can’t really place my finger on. The body is medium and the best from the sampler so far. The flavor has a huge amount of candied fruits. Sugar coated grapefruit, raisins, plums, with a mild floral type hop. Nicely done.

Dogbrick (11339) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Dark amber color with a thin white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and fruity hops. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit and earthy hops. The finish is syrupy with a grainy malt and fruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

onceblind (7138) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Clear slightly dark amber with a big sugary nose, with brown sugar, figs and cherry syrup. The flavor is wonderfully sweet and boozy. Big plums and dates with a cherry note, and a wee kiss of orange zest. Big body with boozy esters and a little whisper of bubblegum throughout. Very very tasty.
