This beer was developed as a collaboration with Mark Richman, the lucky winner of the Taste of the Nation "brewer for a day" silent auction item. This is one monster of an imperial IPA, brewed with a bit of honey and beet sugar.

I've slowly been starting to enjoy IPA's more over the last year or so. Still not my go-to style, but I'm definitely sampling some quality brews! This beauty packs a wallop and it's a double IPA!

Bottle shared in London in honor of Kenny’s birthday. Pours unclear ruby-orange with a frothy, off-white head. The nose has lots of toasted crackers, caramel, earth. Medium to heavy sweet flavour with lots of ripe, jammy citrus, orange, marmalade, earth, wood, caramel. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming and resinous on the finish, with lots of bready malts, earth, oily pine. So so overall.

Bottled 08/20/15. Pours golden dark honey color, white head, really pretty. Aroma is boozy, dank hops, pine, light tropical pineapple, honey, sweet sugar. Flavor is wow, sweet sugar, that beet sugar is there. Definitely quite a bit of heat, burns the back of the throat, mild pine and some pineapple citrus notes. Wow, basically a barleywine. Bit of a bitter finish, that intensifies a bit, but never gets unpleasant. I like it. Feels like I could age it a bit and it would be fine.
