In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Crazy Mountain Brewing Lawyers, Guns & Money

Aroma: “Very bright fruity hops aromas (pineapple, peach, lemon, and light plum) pair with light biscuity malt notes, a moderate nuttiness, a touch of toffee, big caramel, very light chocolate, and a nice malt sweetness.”

Flavor: “Very bright, fruity hops flavors dominate the medium caramel malt sweetness with a little nuttiness. The malt profile leans toward double or triple IPA. The long linger has a touch of grapefruit peel and a light nutty malt.”

Overall: “Despite being a little bit out of style, this is an excellent beer that showcases the fruity American hops very well. It’s well balanced and very approachable for a barleywine, although a touch on the dry side of the style. The big citrusy hops and just of a touch of sweetness let you know you’re not drinking an IIPA.”
