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

Pipelori (5) - - FEB 17, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Color ámbar de turbidez media y espuma persistente. Aroma dulce y frutal con toques a resinas. Sabor muy bien balanceado y complejo, al principio dulce y a frutas tropicales y al final seco y resinoso. Cuerpo medio con sensación cálida. Excelente cerveza pero muy balanceada para ser IIPA

silencifobic (106) - Sabadell, SPAIN - FEB 6, 2018
Shared bottle at Olut Sabadell. It was probably old, as the aroma was not that exuberant. Even though it has a nice raisin aroma. Light orange with white head. Bitter and oily.

Heidbummer (1043) - SCOTLAND - OCT 8, 2017
Taster Brewpub. After the rest of my flight was frankly mediocre, finally a decent hop forward beer from these guys. Soft umami mushroom dank aroma some citrus. Bone dry boozy bitter taste. Decent West coaster.
