---- Site Returning 301 Response when Crawled by Specific Googlebot.

My only thought is that this IP is crawling using HTTPS
I would say the most likely cause is that the bot is hitting the non-www version of your site, in which case a 301 is exactly the response that most webmasters would want to serve.
No cause for alarm, IMHO.
