COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“To kick off this series of intense hoppy beers, we wanted to go big. Imported New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops provide a vibrant tropical aroma that raises eyebrows and expectations. Aggressive amounts of Warrior and Ahtanum hops produce an assertive bitterness that stands out against a firm malt backbone. Balanced even at 90 IBUs, Big Barrel leaves a considerable first impression that serves as a prelude of things to come.” According to a brewery rep, the beer will be distributed throughout Southern California and they’re planning on doing 1,000 cases of 22’s. Specs: Color 15.4 SRM ALC 9.0% IBU 90 PLATO 20

guzgorog (705) - FRANCE - JAN 24, 2016
Blonde orangée trouble, belle mousse beige assez tenace. Puissant nez de houblon : résine, pêche, orange confite. La bouche est également violemment houblonnée ; pin, pamplemousse, orange. Le corps est rond, huileux, amertume brutale, alcool bien présent, très bonne longueur. IIPA méchante mais très agréable !

Bottle at home. Hazy yellowish orange pour, white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, resin, tangerine, mango and some wheat. Flavor is quite bitter, citrus fruits, slightly spicy and somewhat floral with a hint of butter. Nice and very fruity IPA.

Duracell (35) - Montreal, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Glass at La Fine Mousse restaurant, Paris, France. Deep orange colour with snow-white head which has an excellent retention. Solid fruity hoppiness with a sweet backbone. Honey peach, ripe oranges in the nose. Medium bitterness and finishes on the dry side. Good, but relatively heavy on the palate.
