COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lovers delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficionados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

Overly hopped, good malt bill to back it up, but u might as well call this Yeti or sasquatch. since bigfoot has been around for years and this beer is just theyre own version of it

GIJOE (1107) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Pours a soft mahogany with a frothy white head that stays long. Psycho lacing. Nose is piney with a bold malt component. Taste is well balanced with an astringent finish. Somewhat dank aftertaste. Very nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Avery usually makes my mouth happy but overall this one could have been better. It was not very flavorful. it was a beautiful pour with a nice, rusty orange coloration and had a nice head that held on through the bottle. It was a bit dry for my palate which may be why I missed the sweetness I expected.

Not sure date but smelling it seems a few yrs possibly 1. Rusty orange. Light oxidized hops cherry like , mild pine, sweet stale cereal buiscuity malts. Solid taste of malts and spent hops, cherry , some dry, smooth, malty. Good barleywine, not really complex, malty simple and seems overall a little oxidized, think I would like to have this fresh or stored better. I enjoyed it but poorly store or something, found out its about 8 mo old.

DocJitsu (1827) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours a. Lousy orange-golden with an ample pale tan head. Tangy hoppy nose. A lot of syrupy, sweet malt as well. Certainly has a strong malty character with a prominently hopped presence yields a sharp and progressively harsh palate experience. Not in love with it.

Draft pour at the Collective, enjoyed meny times over the years. And one of the first barleywines that I can remember. Clear amber pour. Almost no head. Sweet carmal hoppy flavor nothing overwhelming just a really good balanced beer.
