First up tonight was a Secret Stash from Widmer, an entirely serviceable IPA. Next was my last bottle from the 2014 release of Special Herbs ( yes, I have a problem, thank you much). After last weekend's mild disappointment that was the 2016, I was partly nervous, but boy, did this beer shine. Age amplified a mild honey note that worked brilliantly with the gin barrel and lemongrass. I don't think there is a better annual release in the US than this beer.
