First off, I have no idea why this is referred to as a Barleywine by CM...it's a DIPA. Nothing about it suggests American BW but hey, I'm not the brewer. Subjectively the beer is great, but it's not a Barleywine.
Looks great, clingy lacing and a medium amber color.
Smells like a hob bomb, which it is. All WC "C" hops, Centennial, Chinook & Citra so you get Citrus rind, slight pine and just dank hop oils.
Taste is all about the hops and follows the aroma. Loads of bitter, citrusy, leafy hop flavors pretty much pummels the tongue. Great body, easy to throw down for a 10% heavy-weight. Malt flavors are waaay mild and I just get some grainy, caramel-y notes in the background. Finish has oily, sticky hop notes and is bone-dry.
Recommended. Again, it's tough to rate as it's a very solid beer, but maybe their interpretation of barleywine is different than, well, most everyone else's.
