Don’t be fooled by the label depicting a Grim Reaper Santa Claus in a sleigh pulled by skeletal reindeer - this is not a Christmas Ale. "Sleighor" is an Imperial India Pale Ale. The intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma will dominate at first. To complement, the body has a complex blend of malt and alcohol flavors. The ABV is 9.1%, and the IBU’s are pushing the mid 80s. The entire family of Cascade hops is used. Cascade, Centennial and Columbus are spread throughout the boil, and a huge sack of Amarillo for dry hopping. The hop combination gives this brew a distinct profile true to its IPA roots. The presentation is clear copper with a thick tan head, coupled with billowing citrus and floral hop aroma. "Do You Dare" to enjoy this fine ale from the Reaper? Brewed at Sudwerk for ReaperAle.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2009

Butters (4047) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Sampled at the ’Butter’s Last Supper’ tasting. Pours a clear dark amber with good white head and fair lacing. You can tell right off the nose that this is old. Medicinal antisceptic piney hop aroma with a good backbone of malt that shines through in flavor. And also vegetal, with hot spicy floral faded hops. A bit cloying on the palate. I guess I will have to try this again fresh. Awesome label though.

nearbeer (4921) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Bomber. Clear, darkish copper-amber with a lasting half-inch of creamy foam. Big aroma is a nice blend of orange, grapefruit, tea leaf, caramel and light cocoa. Flavor is the same great blend with some additional dry leaf, wood and grapefruit on the finish. Medium-heavy body is mostly smooth and a little sticky, but dangerously drinkable. Drippy lacing all over the glass.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Bottle from Cindirene’s. Pours dark copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, hops, fruity, and some slight funky spicy hints. The flavor is hoppy, with a hefty caramel malt base, and some mid-palate yeasty spice, fruity tartness, and late earthy peppery notes. Very complex with well hidden alcohol, this one is rock solid.
