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

Bomber. Slightly hazy vibrant yellow-orange pour with a white head. Aroma is mild pineapple, but I’m getting just a hint of cardboard peeking through here as well. No date on the bottle, but I’d be surprised if this was very aged, as everything else I bought from this store on this day seemed quite fresh. Kind of a juicy taste, nice hop bite, fairly clean yet dry finish.

Aroma and flavor subdued pineapple and floral notes - didn’t see a date but didn’t seem terribly fresh. Still pretty bitter. Just ok with the potential to be better.

Bottle, thanks Eddan. Clear golden/orange with a white head. Hoppy aroma and taste of pineapple, mango and some caramel. Also grapefruit and light malt. The finish was bitter. A tasty one.

guzgorog (867) - 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 Drie Dorstige Herten. Aroma of caramel and some rye. Fresh taste of white grape, caramel and bitter malt. Nice, but the bottle was too old.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2015
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.
