Notes / Commercial Description:
He ventures to the Naughty Temple, weaving through its intricate web of slithering sensations, while bitter lovers dance playfully upon his tongue. Slowly, slipping into madness, he surrenders himself to the sweet sip of seduction. As he emerges in the wake of ecstasy, he is greeted with a warm, tender kiss. A wave of bliss washes over him, and happiness is all that exists.

Not much of an IPA. Since this is a bit old, all of the flavor and aroma hops seem to have vanished leaving only the bittering. What I do get is a whiskeyed sweet ale.

***2014 vintage***

L: pours light brown with no head. Very dark brown in the glass.....looks like a barleywine
S: sweet barrel, whisky soaked dark grapes
T: like the nose sweet dark fruit but fades away to a very potent alcohol finish and not in a good way.
F: thin and boozy with a hot finish.
O: what a bummer
