Review #3- Barley & Hops Craft Candles – Bitter Sweet IPA
Given the opportunity to try out three different candles, or a Craft Beer (Candle) Flight, we definitely hit the jackpot with the three choices, the IPA, the Brown Ale, and the Espresso Porter. If you’re a fan of coffee, the espresso porter is definitely one of the best candles that they have. When the coffee smell hits your nose, it smells like a fresh brewed pot is right around the corner. The Brown Ale hits the nose as a smell of roasted hazelnuts, which is one of the reasons why I chose it. It brings off the smell of a very malty beer that you would grab, like a Rogue, Surly Moe, or Cigar City Maduro. The IPA definitely had a bit more of a floral and citrus, maybe fruity style of smell. It doesn’t have the dank smell that a lot of IPA’s have as they get hoppier, but your standard session style IPA like a Centennial from Founders.
The wood flight it comes on is stained and very rustic looking and feeling. What’s nice is that the ability after using the candles (120 hours of burn time) you can wash it out and turn it into a nice tasting flight as the glasses can be re-purposed and they have their own stand to sit on.
Overall you’re getting a great candle, way more burn for your buck than most major candle outlets, and a nice surprise for the beer friend who has everything!
