14:55 IPA- IPA dry hopped with Pacifica hops 6.3% ABV SUDS-4

Our thanks to Rabbit Hole Distilleries for providing the product samples for this episode. We did run across a bottle with a tainted cork and it was promptly replaced. It happens and it’s just the nature of using a natural product. Thanks for the prompt response.
