What the brewers say

“An English-inspired grain bill, heavily hopped with Centennial and Mosaic.”

What our panel thought

“A hop-forward (pine and orange citrus) barleywine in aroma, flavor, and bitterness. Hop notes intersect with bready/leathery, caramel, toffee malt notes that carry the beer forward and don’t leave a lot of lingering sweetness, contributing to the overall surprising and confident drinkability.”

What our editors thought

“Charred oak and burnt sugar on the nose, oddly circumspect. Caramel and hops in the sip lack the decadence expected at this ABV in the style. Lean and austere.”
