COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much like the magical movies of our childhood, running a brewery in a town far, far, away with great friends and family can seem like a dream. From sharing a pint with co-workers after a long day on the bottling line, to pouring our beers at the Great American Beer Festival next to my beautiful wife, sometimes the blessings I have received in my life can seem, well…inconceivable. A bold beer that no one has brewed before, this barrel aged double IPA somehow retains its lively hops while combining with flavors of vanilla and oak from our new barrels to create a beer that tastes of fortune and glory. Cheers. Xandy Bustamante

Benzai (10606) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2015
Sampled at 8th Danish Ratebeer Gathering, Ulfborg 2015, day 2. Clear medium to dark orange color, medium sized off-white to lightly beige colored head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, hops, a hint of oranges and slightly a hint of resin. Taste malts, some hops have lingered but it’s no longer recognizable as a double IPA, the barrel aging kind of killed it as happens most of the time with barrel aged hoppy beers. Decent bitterness, but barrel aging hoppy beers? No, doesn’t work for me.
