The Location: Jay’s place
In 2010 the LCBO began running brewery features, special limited releases of a series of beers from a single brewery. The first was with Dieu du Ciel out of Montreal, and the second with Harviestoun’s Ola Dubh series. Not only was this notable for the rarity of the beers involved, but often for the price. The Ola Dubh 40 — Harviestoun’s Old Engine Oil beer aged in 40-year-old whisky casks — was individually numbered, served with a small crest and in a handsome box, and priced at $19 a bottle. This release would see a $23 bottle of barley wine, and in this case, a $7.50 bottle of IPA.
As noted in the pic we completed the eating portion of our drinking night, and would now commence with the guitar portion of our drinking night. My classy Fender Reverb Deluxe served as a ghetto coaster for this amber IPA with a whispy white head. Our second straight IPA that came strong on the malty sweetness in the aroma, with a matching light malty flavour spiked with black pepper-like hop sharpness. A fine IPA, albeit possibly slightly overpriced for what it was. Good way to kick off a little jamming, though.
