The elusive brew is made from pilsner malt and amber malt with an original gravity of 26.5?P, yielding an 11% abv. It's hopped with Warrior and Glacier varieties. Primary fermentation takes place in open vessels using two yeast strains, one American and one English. For added complexity, the beer is conditioned on barrel staves of French Oak for four months before being dry hopped with Glacier at the rate of a half-pound per barrel. This elixir is then blended 50/50 with 90 Minute IPA. After blending, the beer will measure 80 IBU and 10% abv. Bottled in corked bottles through Michael Jackson’s rare beer club by late November 04 and available in 12 ounce full distribution in early January 05.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy amber brown color, beige head cover, sheets of lace. Taste is strong malt that adds nutty wood in the palate, then showing strong hops as well as palpable alcohol. Every bit of the 10% abv, a solid complex brew.

It pours amber with orange coloration present. The head is white and well developed. There are aromas of sweet citrus with aromas on the tropical side. It has a sweet caramel like flavor that actually has a tinge of chocolate with plenty of citrus punch. It has a decent bitter kick that carries the sweet flavors through.

Dec. 30, 2014. 12 oz. btl. in shaker glass. Copper pour with pillowy, white one-finger head. Candy-ish and chewy, this well-balanced brew is powerful in all respects, while overpowering in none. Not perceiving any flaws...

Nero55 (824) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Deep copper with medium off white head and nice lacing. Aroma of citrus and resinous hops, malt sweetness, and a hint of wood (oak). Medium body, medium/heavy resinous hop bitterness, citrus, medium malt body, and a bitter finish. Nicely balanced and not too much oak like some other oak aged IPAs.

Panzuriel (1378) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Burton Baton purchased in a 4 pack at Meijer in westerville Ohio. This beer pours a hazy rich copper color with a very small thin head of tiny white bubbles. nose is a faint but complex hop bouquet. primarily citrus with a hint of floral. Taste is initially dry but with a good amount of latent sweetness. Hops are restrained and the body is also less aggressive than normal. FInishes with just a kiss of bitters and a bit of clover honey. a very nice DIPA that doesn’t hit you over the head.

Cervesa molt aromàtica, però un cop la poses a la boca es nota l’amargor del llúpol mesclada amb dolçor de les maltes i un petit toc àcid molt agradable i molt gratament sorprenent. Cerveza muy aromática, pero una vez la pones a la boca se nota el amargor del lúpulo mezclado con el dulce de las maltas y un pequeño toque ácido muy agradable y muy gratamente sorprendente.
