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

Poured up on tap at the 2014 Papago Hopageddon event where it exhibits a clear copper body that has a thin gold edge and supporting a near white head. The aroma pulses with straight up sweet candied citrus, mango and pineapple and sweetened a bit further by some maltiness. The taste delivers fruity sweet candy like citrus hops as well as pineapple and mango mixed with passion fruit. This has plenty of hop flavor and malt sweetness that team up together to temper what fruity bitter hops are there.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy grapefruit color with a thick, frothy white head. Smoked, hoppy aroma. Sweet, hoppy taste with a smokey finish. Great balance. Could have more flavor though.

BOLTZ7555 (2960) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Really enjoyed this. The style is hit and miss, for sure and this one is a solid triple! Candied orange, grilled lemon, and bright grapefruit pith accompanied by oak, vanilla, and spicy pepper. Hints of butterscotch as well. Really assertive yet balanced. Everything melding beautifully. Will pick up another bottle for sure!

Double IPA aged in oak barrels. Balanced malt and citrusy hops are enhanced by the dank barrels. Slight funkiness leads to a grapefruit bitterness. Pungent beer that is not for the faint of heart.

Draft at the Pine Box, Seattle. oaky, mellow hop. Rich darker appearance. very drinkable. Refined but also pushing some flavors

onceblind (5312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Clear light amber with an aroma of bourboned oak and melon and pineapple hoppiness with some boozy undertone. Big pineapple flavor with some caramelly and sharp oak undertones that lend a little pineapple flavor overall. Tropical hoppy yet sharp oaky.

wchesser (1433) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Pleasantly surprised here. Deep copper. Nose of caramel malts, citrus hops, light oak. Fairly malty, but dry, with juicy hops, and light wood tannin. Oak really rounds out the mouthfeel and adds a nice complexity to the beer. RIght up there with Burton Baton if not better for me.

Draft. Pours a deep copper/amber. Aroma of tropic fruit, pine, mango. Orange zest. Taste is pine, fresh orange flesh, grapefruit. Slight sweet malt balance. Slight booze presence on the finish. Surprisingly complex for a DIPA. Sticky sweet finish.

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a hazy copper with a thick off white head. Orange aroma. Flavors of oak, vanilla, pine and caramel. Bitter finish. Ooh, yah!.
