A very interesting IPA. This ones blended with the 90 minute so thatís got to mean atleast three different yeast strains. Thereís a bit of sweetness to this one.

Bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours deep amber with an inch of off-white head. Smells of grapefruit and apple. Taste is bubblegum, strong alcohol, and smooth hops.

This tastes more like an American strong ale than an ipa. Had 4 pack from Holmes. Aroma is malty like taste. Quite boozy with slight note of oak. Strong syrupy malt backbone. I can tell it has some toastier malts. Good beer.

Keep this one in the cellar every year. Itís only getting better.
So complex with the american/english yeast combination. Great hop flavor and the addition of the barrel aging only deepens the malty backbone.

S: Grapefruit, Pineapple, LemonGrass, Earthy
