Engine 15 Imperial Simcoe (Bourbon Barrel Aged)
Engine 15 Imperial Simcoe (Bourbon Barrel Aged) is an American Double/Imperial IPA, aged in bourbon barrels. You probably guessed that.
I’m getting lots of boozy bourbon on the nose. The taste looses the bourbon flavor quite a bit, but makes up for it with some big oak notes. The Simcoe was a great hop choice for this beer, the barrel aging and hops are not battling each other at all. I really like that the hop bitterness is very mild on this, makes it more of the sipper like it should be.
Big thanks to Brian for sharing this one!
