Beer Description

This is our mainstay Belgian IPA taken to another level. Look for a more subdued hop profile with hints of vanilla sweetness.

What we are doing with wood is trying to tease out all of the flavor that we can. The complexity you can get from wood barrels can add a whole new profile to a beer. The oak barrels give off a natural flavor called “vanillin” which as it suggests gives off the soft essence of vanilla. Toast levels of barrels can increase the intensity of this flavor as well.

A lot of the barrels we use are from Jack Daniels Distillery. In making bourbon, by law they can only use the barrel once. When they are done with them they try to find homes for them. If they cannot, they are destroyed or burned. We are happy to oblige in providing these poor little abandoned barrels a nice home. Bourbon barrels give off smoky, charcoal, and all around bourbon-esque flavors to the beer.
