DRAFT REVIEW: Old Jackalope Barleywine Style Ale

Punchy orange and piney hops; sweet, sticky caramel; toasted bread—this beer’s gorgeous aroma is everything alluring about barleywines, punched up by alcohol-tinged heat. On the tongue, sweet caramel and almonds marry with toasted bread notes; vivid citrusy, piney hops color the swallow. Alcohol heat puts the perfect amount of pressure on the big flavors to keep them in check before robust hop bitterness sweeps in to guide the sip toward a smooth, glowing conclusion.
