For many, California is considered an epicenter for brewing innovation, particularly where hoppy IPAs are concerned. We teamed up with longtime craft compatriots and mutual hop admirers Sierra Nevada to create a truly one-of-a-kind IPA. This special-edition beer conveys the true character of collaboration with touches of inventiveness and creativity. Two batches of an IPA were brewed and expertly blended to craft this multilayered beer. The first batch was split down the middle, with 50% being aged in gin-infused bourbon barrels and the remaining half aged in rye whiskey barrels. These beers were blended with the fresh second batch of IPA, which was generously dry-hopped to impart rich aromas to accompany the citrusy, piney, woody, herbaceous flavors achieved from this truly one-of-a-kind collaboration. Hop Varieties: Magnum Amarillo Chinook Cascade Centennial & Mosaic

    Pours clear golden amber with a very thick gold-buff head. Aroma delivers hoppy, resiny and fruity tones. Flavor presents resiny hops with a woody undertone and plenty of malt, citrus and pomme fruit in supporting roles. A floral hint takes the gustatory stage now and then. Mouthfeel features typical body, plenty of fizz, and a hay-hoppy finish. Drink NXS - but please designate a driver, or call a taxi.

    Amber color with a small off white head that left some lacing. Floral, woody and fruity aroma. Nice ipa with pine, woody, citrus and grassy flavours. Some of the barrel aging flavours come through but not very strong. Mainly the gin.

    Bottle. Gorgeous amber pour with a medium, frothy white head. Aroma is fruity with soft oak, light gin, pine resins, floral hops, herbal hops and caramel. Taste is piney and floral with rich caramel, citrus fruit, tropical fruit, herbal notes, light oak, hop oils and sweet malt. Body is medium-full with a creamy carbonation and a moderate lingering hop bitterness. Ends with more piney notes, caramel, floral hops, tropical fruit, citrus notes, light oak, sweet malt, herbal hops and a touch of booze. Very nice!
