(22oz bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a tall off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grass, pine, bread, and dried fruits. Flavor of grass, dried fruits, caramel, orange peel, and brown sugar with a bitter finish. slowrunner77 (12844) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 22, 2014
"A very nice hop forward barlwywine that seems to change it stripes as it opens. Starts out with an aroma more akin to a IIPA than a BW. First sip gives you hints of honey and biscuit malt in addition to the hops. As it opens, it develops more malty sweetness in the aroma, and a distinct (and delicious) malt character very similar to my favorites from great Divide, Hibernation and Old Ruffian. Dangerously drinkable at 9.6%!"

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear amber orange with a grayish light brown head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has a combination of pine and sweet grains with a bit of underlying resin. Flavor starts with sweet grains but finish is strong pine with a bit of grass and a resin kick. rosenbergh (11799) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2015
