Hardywood Bourbon DIPA

Beer style: 
Belgian Double India Pale Ale Aged in Virginia Bourbon Barrels

Hardywood Bourbon DIPA is hopped with a heavy dose of Columbus, Cascade and Summit hops, fermented with an abbey ale yeast that imparts some subtle tropical fruit and peppery notes and conditioned twelve weeks in freshly emptied Virginia bourbon barrels from the A. Smith Bowman Distillery, where earthy, vanilla, toffee and bourbon notes lend an exquisite mellowness to Bourbon DIPA.

Best with: 

The rich flavors of Hardywood Bourbon DIPA pair beautifully with equally rich foods, including aged sharp cheddar, game birds such as dove and quail in savory sauce, spicy grilled sausages, and roast pork tenderloin.
