Enjoyed in a tulip during Four Peaks’ tap takeover at Flanny's.
Almost perfectly clear copper-orange. A creamy, fluffy, one-inch head of off-white sets up camp atop. Webs of lace decorate the glass.
Noticeable whiskey aroma contributes notes of brown sugar and maple, which blend surprisingly well with the earthy hops of this English IPA. Soil, flowers, caramel, oak.
Again, I love what the barrel adds here. Oakiness melds with English hops, but the whiskey doesn't take over. Finishes sweet with flavors of caramel-covered popcorn.
Smooth, medium-light body, mild massaging carbonation, silky fizz. Just a hint of alcohol on the nose.
You don’t see many barrel-aged IPAs, probably because the flavors often clash. Not so here. A nice job from Four Peaks.
