Review from notes, sampled 1/13/2008
Pours a crystal clear copper color with a reddish orange hue when held up to the light. Meager head dissipates to lace on the glass. Aroma is piney, grapefruity, citrusy hops, some alcohol and a faint caramel malt in the background. Tastes like it smells. Bit of a hop bite on the tongue and in the aftertaste. Body is a bit thinner than I expected, not much malt going on here. Overall its an ok Barleywine, the alcohol is well hidden by the hops. I would have liked a bit more of a malt backbone.

September 2009 bottle. Muddy brown pour with a nice big fluffy white head. Aroma was sweet caramel malts, lots of piney hops, lemon peel and a some heat. Flavors were semi-sweet malts, great hop presence throughout. The finish consisted of light yet lingering bitterness, dry. Absolutely smooth as can be, super drinkable. A fantastic Barley Wine from Red Hook. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2010
