Did not expect to see this at Dundurn when I dropped by for some Red Racer! Had the whole feature minus the DIPA.
Me too! It strikes a nice balance between hoppy and roasty. My only (minor) gripe is I wish it was a little less boozy - dare I say, a few months in the bottle may help it?
How does it compare to the Garrison?
oh, man - trying to dig that beer out of the memory vault.
I think I remember Garrison's a little more quaffable than this, but I like the "sipper" aspect of this one - Garrison's may have been more juicy with the hops, but I find this one more rich and roasty - especially when it warms up.
But am I remembering right that Garrison's was kind of muddled? I dunno.
I wish I had a garrison' in front of me, to compare.
One thing, is this one's definitely "bigger"! For better or for worse.
