    Just posted a review since there were none, but here's the gist of it:

    Overall pretty good. Could use a more robust body. Loses some complexity as it warms (originally served at 50 degrees). Worth a try for the price ($9.99). A huge improvement over Dirtier Bird and a step in the right direction for Finch's barrel program. The use of Koval barrels is cool since their a Chicago-based spirit producer, but may attribute to some of the harshness in the flavor and dominance of wood over whiskey since the barrels are only in use 1-2 years.

    Lots of whiskey and wood ... the base beer definitely gets lost in the mix.

    Very good stuff, probably over 3 years old. Lightly oxidized, but not detrimental. Light caramelization from age. Good malt, hop, and peppery flavor balance.

    First Alpine. This reminds me of Fat Heads Head Hunter quite a bit. Incredible! Tons of mango, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, peach. I looked up the clone and its all amarillo/simcoe late hops. Everything makes sense now

    That's the benchmark for the style right there, IMO.

    Sitting outside waiting for the storm, although it's a few hours out. Good thing the fridge is full.

    Couple Narry's after a beer league hockey game. Think they did a good job recreating a classic 50's design.

    This song is how Van Halen used to close their gigs before they hit it big. Playing the Whiskey in LA and tearing the roof off before they embarked on their first tour...magic!
