Darker and hoppier than I expected. Nice flavour and balance.

Lunch and then bike shopping! This is a nice robust English IPA.

Forked River Brewing Company by First Day of Spring

Chris K. is drinking a First Day of Spring by Forked River Brewing Company at Arabella Park Beer Bar

Today truly is the first day of spring! Clear instead of hazy, has a malt backbone and nice hops. Just a bit of off flavour on the back end.

Halo Brewery by 100 Pts.

Chris K. is drinking a 100 Pts. by Halo Brewery at Arabella Park Beer Bar

Cherry is not overdone, so this is only a little tart. Leaves some room for the rest of the dubbel character. Maybe not enough room?

Godspeed Brewery by Oberkassel Altbier

Chris K. is drinking an Oberkassel Altbier by Godspeed Brewery at Arabella Park Beer Bar

Nice nutty and hoppy character. Fair amount of lingering bitterness. Very interesting.

Innocente Brewing Company by Gie It Laldy (Aged Over Zinfandel Grape Skins In A Whiskey Barrel)

Chris K. is drinking a Gie It Laldy (Aged Over Zinfandel Grape Skins In A Whiskey Barrel) by Innocente Brewing Company

Starts out tart again like many of these barrel aged, but it has a real nice character that opens up and mellows over gradual sipping.

Innocente Brewing Company by Until Proven Guilty In Tennessee Whiskey Barrels (2014)

Chris K. is drinking an Until Proven Guilty In Tennessee Whiskey Barrels (2014) by Innocente Brewing Company

Potent. Very much characterized by the barrels. Almost viscous. Really well aged.

Chris K. is drinking an Until Proven Guilty In Tennessee Whisky Barrels (2015) by Innocente Brewing Company

Not tart like the 2016. Got more of a whisky note, but also a somewhat harsh bitterness at the back that fades with time. Pretty good.

Bottle

StoneHammer Brewing by Stone Hammer Maple Red Ale

Chris K. is drinking a Stone Hammer Maple Red Ale by StoneHammer Brewing at The Belmont Bistro

Been a while since this has shown up! It's still pretty solid. Nice flavourful nutty amber ale with no small amount of maple character.

Innocente Brewing Company by Dubbel Vision Aged In Red Wine Barrels

Chris K. is drinking a Dubbel Vision Aged In Red Wine Barrels by Innocente Brewing Company

Pretty nice after the second sip. The dubbel sweetness helps balance the wine barrel tartness. Doesn't have that wine barrel harshness.

Bottle

Innocente Brewing Company by Waterloo 1815 (Aged Over Zinfandel Grape Skins)

Chris K. is drinking a Waterloo 1815 (Aged Over Zinfandel Grape Skins) by Innocente Brewing Company

Quite tart! Lots of the wine character, not much of the rye. Gorgeous colour, but easily in the "sour" category. Interesting beer.

Innocente Brewing Company by Innocente Innerer Schweinehund

Chris K. is drinking an Innocente Innerer Schweinehund by Innocente Brewing Company

Wow, that's quite the barnyard nose. Taste is nice though, a rich nutty brown. But whew boy, it's just a little pungent.
