The Barleywine has gone away for another year. She was tasting great for her last few weeks of life.
Now with the open tap we could put on the Imperial India Brown Ale. This beer is crazy hoppy. It is calculated at 60 IBU's but it tastes way more then that with a huge resin character coating the mouth after the swallow. Of course you have the dark crystal sweetness of a brown ale up front but then the hops take over. At 9% abv all you Hopheads be careful. This beer drinks like a brown ale with the alcohol/hop kick of an Imperial IPA.
Give one a whirl.
