2014 MASSIVE! Barleywine was made Simpsons Golden Promise Malt, a traditional Scottish malt. Finished with Cascade, Mosaic and Simcoe hops. 12% ABV. Brewers in the midlands of England would boil their barley wines ales for longer times to intensify their flavors. In making Massive! we used only British Halcyon pale malt and boiled for eight hours, giving the beer a deep ruby color and rich malt flavor. Heavily hopped, Massive! is a beer that can be enjoyed now for its intensity, or after years and years and years of aging.
