COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love ipa. Especially big hoppy ones. This west coast style imperial India pale ale is not messing around. At 12% abv and 110 ibu’s, it’s the liquid equivalent of Lenny in John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. Gently tending rabbits then suddenly….snap, it’s a whirlwind of crazy. Big citrusy aromatics, solid bitter backbone, and candy-like finish.

This is a good one. Pours a golden yellow with big head. Strong hop/malt aroma. Flavor has loads of citrus and hops. Rather sweetish finish to it. It is pretty good--alcohol content is high, but it doesn’t taste boozy,

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a dark orange to ruddy brown color with a sly finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a decent pace. Messy lace all about. The aroma starts with a nice blend of sharp dried pine to bitter citrus rind. Crisp embracing caramel malt backbone slides in for a nice balance. The flavor balances nicely between bitter and sweet, might not always be at the same time but I do like how it comes across. Dried sweet citrus to bitter piney and malty aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice smooth transition of hops to malts rolling over my tongue. Overall, this old school DIPA or west coast one as suggested by the brewer is pretty good and I could see myself coming back to.

Bomber shared by Chalumeaux. Thanks TJ! Bottled 9/18/14. So, it’s a Barleywine now. Rating as such. Pours golden brown with an off white head. Aroma is honey, molasses, floral. As a Barleywine this isn’t half bad. Honey, molasses, floral, pine bitterness to balance.

Chalumeaux (1533) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Poured from bottle dated 9/18/14. Hazy orange color with thin fizzy head. Aromas of caramel malt hops and bitter pine resin. Taste is very bitter and lingers. Might have been better fresh.

Bomber. Pours a copper orange with an off white head and aroma of hops, pine, and resin. Taste is strong bitterness up front, lots of pine and resin with hops into the big bitter, dry finish.

Crafted nicely and pours well, but not in my spectrum unfortunately. Very strong and makes it a lottle overwhelming but I know a few who’ll love it.

Starts out with a big body that does not deliver. Call UPS and have them deliver it to you. This has the beginnings but not the middle and the end! Low head and super syrupy. Tastes like liquid hop but ends quick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
