Holy Hoppin’ Hell Batch 2 aged in a Heaven Hill bourbon barrel.
Hoppier than a (insert joke here), and bitter as..... Blah,blah, just drink it! This double IPA is brewed with the same grain bill each time and to the same IBU, but the late hops in each versin will be whatever we think will wreak most havoc on your palates.

Backlog rating. Keg at BD Shepherds bush. It pours a deep amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet, intensely fruity and hoppy with grapefruit, peaches and lemons. Light wood and vanilla notes. Taste is again quite sweet with big juicy fruity hops, some wood influence and a dryer bitter finish. Body is oily and thick with good carbonation. Overall, good DIPA.

mcberko (8723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy opaque dark orange with a small white head. Aroma smells like resinous hops, bourbon barrels, and woody notes. Flavour is well-balanced, incorporating the bourbon very well, with resinous hops and woody notes. Still tastes like a IIPA with a boozy, barrel-heavy character. Solid stuff.

Muddy brown orange colour, small white head leaving some lacing. Big citrus hit on the nose, then good mixture of fruit including grapefruit, peach and orange. Fruit stays around while the bitter finish kicks in.

Very hazy dark amber beer, good off white head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft. Mild fine carbonation. Tangy jammy fruits nicely balanced with malt cream, bourbon and a whisper of vanilla. Finishes smooth and semi dry with a little bitterness and spice coming through. Very nice indeed. Would love to see a dry hopped version.
