disappointed to find out when i got home and looked this beer up on the interweb that Anheuser-Busch InBev bought this brewery up. it tasted good but sad to see big companies buying up the competition.
"Sensei (Double Dry Hopped) is a Triple India Pale Ale & the BIG brother of Master of Karate! Sensei is fermented on our house yeast then hopped with Mosaic, Amarillo, & Galaxy. Notes of citrus, mango, pineapple, & pine with a creamy mouthfeel. Think candied oranges."
My wife wanted to try a specific cider at Arabella Park but it had already dropped off the list by the time we got there.
I did a quick flight of some funky stuff and she tried the other two ciders on tap. A weird Ontario law says that unless a cidery has more than 6 acres of orchard they can't have a tap/tasting room. It sometimes makes tracking down and trying certain craft ciders difficult.
Left to right although I drank them right to left
The oud bruin was a true sour in the rodenbach vein. Southern migration was very tropical. I have been wanting to try a dominion city brew for awhile now. The old soul was just straight up fantastic. I really enjoy wild ales.
I'm making some aji de gallina for dinner, and sipping this badass stout. Oddly enough, I'm getting a bit of that root beer aftertaste that THP was getting from a stout he had a week ago, or so. I did have an insanely hopped TIPA(Sensai), right before this.
THP, did you have a juicy IPA before that stout you were talking about?
I wonder if there is a lingering hop alkaloid from a certain type of hop, that blends with a bourbon barrel aged stout, to cause a root beerish flavor.
