Nose
Clean, punchy, piney hop resins, with notes of citrus and tropical fruit, supported by gentle caramel.
Palate
Bursting with flavour and just on the bitter side, with warming alcohol and a creamy caramel layer underneath. Juicy, citrus-fruit jelly notes combine with tangy, piney hops, then suggestions of marzipan arrive as the beer warms.
Finish
Sweetness fades and hops and bitterness build. Fruit lingers and so does creamy malt.
Comment
The daddy of American barley wines: a big, sumptuous beer, defined by dry hopping with Cascade hops. It really hits the spot.
