BRRRRlywine
 
This beer took 2nd place in the IBU Open this year. It only had about 6 months age on it at the time. This is a fantastic beer and will enter it again next year as every month that passes it gets better and better. The hop bitterness early on is intense. About 9 months into the aging I'm noticing the hop character is starting to mellow out quite a bit. This is gonna be one hell of a beer 12 months from now.

I took a 2 year old sample of this to last night's club holiday party and everyone liked it. I'm brewing round 2 of this recipe tomorrow. Might up the crystal & victory a tad.

Just tasted a sample from the batch I made 6 months ago. Haven't dry hopped it yet but it's already tasting smooth & yummy!
