Decided to have a dram of Speyburn 10 with this. It is at least an interesting combo.

A couple of glasses of Smoking Loon Merlot 2010. A pretty good wine for $5 but rather fruity. Cranberry, plum, cherry, red currants, with a little vanilla and oak spice.

Overall very good QPR but not a great wine.

Karl Strauss Big Barrel Double IPA.

N: Super juicy. Orange, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, etc. Just hints of pine and malt.

P: Starts on a little orange pith, then some malt, and then the bitter hops kick in, taking it towards underripe grapefruit and pine.

F: Bitter grapefruit and malt.

The nose is heavenly, the palate is ok and the finish is disappointing. I would love to try it on tap sometime but it is just an ok overall DIPA, I would much rather have Stone Ruination for the same if not cheaper price.
