92/1910) Home:  Dale's Pale Ale, or Mountain Pale Ale by Oskar Blues Brewery of Colorado, U.S.A.:  **;  6.5%;  "A Huge Voluminously Hopped Mutha of a Pale Ale";  nose features pine and citrus;  piney, resiny flavours;  long lasting aftertaste;

93/1911) Home:  Thor's Hammer 2015 Vintage by Central City Brewers and Distillers of British Columbia:  **;  10.25%;  bottle conditioned barley wine;  matured one year; very strong aroma of alcohol with dark fruit;  when I tasted it the alcohol nearly overwhelmed everything else but there are hints of figs and plums;  extremely warming with a lingering alcohol after taste;

I would rate higher save for the up front alcohol - further aging would definitely benefit this one.
