….mmm…12.5% ABV barrel-aged dessert.
A tasty 8.2% unfiltered imperial IPA. Piney and resinous hop nose, with strong but pleasant hop bitterness over a pale malt body with no residual sweetness. Bitterness lingers only slightly after swallowing.
Still good, but doesn’t quite stand out as much as it did when I first tasted it way back when. Malty amber with a nice hop balance. Something I didn’t know ’til just now…Humboldt Brewing is now owned by Firestone Walker.
