4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy copper with a large mousse like tan head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops. Hints of raisin and plum fruits. Also a slight hint of pear and grapes. Tastes of caramel malt, but very hop forward that gives citrus and pine hop flavors that linger long into the finish. Hop bitter finish, though there is an initial sweetness. Full bodied with a strong, though not overpowering alcohol warming. Medium carbonation. Delicious beer.

This was pretty hoppy. Doesn’t taste like your typical barleywine. It was more like an ipa but I would drink again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 2015 release so quite fresh, 04/21/2015. Pours a ruby brown color, dense medium head with sticky lacing. Aroma of citrus with heavy grapefruit and noticeable tropical notes, sticky sweet toffee keeping pace with mildly resinous pine. Taste is grapefruit and thick bitterness balanced by sweet caramel malts and citrus zest, lingering grassy pine notes. Thick body, chewy. Really nice, a standard for the American style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, across several vintages. Pours an amber color with a tan head. Somewhat oily in appearance. Aromas are of sweet raisins, dates, alcohol, bitter/earthy hops and a light roast. Taste is incredibly sweet. Cloying at times. This thing is over-hopped to the gills! Tropical fruit waves come through, but does little to calm the sweet malt that continue to linger and cling to my palate. Not a big fan of this one, but I can see why some would like it.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from draft. Pours a deep amber with off white head. Aroma is citrus fruits, caramel and some dark fruits as well. Tastes almost like an imperial IPA. You still get the dark fruits and caramel/toffee sweetness but there is citrus and piney flavors to balance. Nice mild bitterness that barleywine often lack. Excellent beer as usual from three floyds.

2013 bottle Big thanks to Nelson, long time want! Hazy straw orange white head. Fruity yeast strawberry. The booze is very present but well balanced. This beer is a great example of a barley wine. A true classic.
