Thanks to my random Washing D.C. friend for leaving this on the table of a recent gathering of old ass, semi-invalids. 16 oz. can split with my wife after midnight. Not a great idea.

The pour is light orange, looks like an old school IPA that lost its carbonation (& mojo). Not much coming off the surface & plunging up my nose, touch of orange, rye spiciness. Tame.

Sleeping Standing Up – I do this sometimes when working. Seriously. If there’s no one around, & you’re on a straight stretch, just close your eyes for a dozen steps. It’s a lovely interlude. Do it all the time, & only whacked into a wall once. The beer? What? Not much beer here, mostly rye whiskey barrel. Warm, spicy, rye. Plenty of orange &, well, rye barrel.

Simple. But tasty. Lovely use of the barrel; if there were more heft to the base beer, this would be a serious winner. As is, a very nice brew.
