Gin Barrel-Aged Double IPA
2-Row, Munich, Aromatic
Columbus, Cascade, Kohatu, Loral
The first of many of our barrel aged beers, this is a big WC DIPA that had a nice long nap in some gin barrels. We teamed up with our friends at Treaty Oak to get their barrels that used to house their tasty Antique Gin. The hops meld nicely with the botanicals from the gin, making for a delectable beverage to sip on.
Bright gin botanicals blend nicely with the citrus and pine character from the hops. Notes of cinnamon, vanilla, and leather come from the medium char oak of the barrels. It finishes with a nice balance of malt, hops and gin.
