BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Poured a big, cloudy deep orangish copper color with good carbonation and a nice dirty white cap
S: Lots of flowers and citrus notes with a big bready note
T: Wow. Lots of IBUs here but this beer is big and hefty on the grain bill which provides one big chewy IPA. Some citrus and flowers with some bread are the dominant notes. There seems to be alot going on with this beer and it tends to be a little muddy at times but tasty, bitter
M: Big body, well carbonated, plenty of hop bittterness
O: A different IPA requiring an open mind but nevertheless it is good. It had to grow on me but once it did I found rather tasty and intriguing.
Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice Hops aroma floral. The brew drinks very easy but it does come off light not a big IPA flavor I was looking for.
