3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A-- Poured a hazy, darker orange amber color. Nice visible carbonation and for it’s age a nice 2 finger off white head that left nice soapy lacing. Not what I expected for a barleywine or compared to the first two in the series.
S-- Hops are still quite lively. Good fruit nose of Orange and grapefruit with some pine notes. Followed by the carmel backbone. Just bits of rye spices. Follows more of a DIPA ish nose really.
T-- Still quite hoppy. has held up well. Got the backbone of toasted carmel and then orange, pine and grapefruit. Just slightly grainy fruit flavors and touches of rye spice. Did fall apart after it warmed though. Lots of lemon scented pledge. Not entirely bad but overpowering lemon.
M-- Oily and full bodied. Still quite carbonated and lively. Earthy and spicy feel and dry finish.
O-- Not bad but got hard to finish as just became a lemon bomb and lost the Carmel and other fruits. First half of the beer was very nice though.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small white head. The nose has tropical fruits, citrus, perhaps some pineapple and hints of rye. The flavor has more nice fruity notes, caramel, spicy rye, brown sugar and the alcohol remains well hidden.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Pleasant smell of rye and hobs. Appearance: Not the prettiest of beers, cloudy. Taste: A clear taste of rye goes through and is rounded by a strong hobs aroma, this is however kept in check by the heavy alcohol. Palate: Full, sticky, average, bitter. Overall: Very good, but the hobby quality of the Boogoop is missing, the rye flavor is definitely a plus.
