American Wild Ale | 6.4% ABV
Barrel Aged Wild Ale Dry Hopped w/El Dorado.
To help celebrate our two year anniversary, we've released the fourth blend of the very first beer we released, ++good. Past versions included Mosaic, Citra, and Centennial dry hoppings. This series has been an experiment in aging. All four blends are from the same batch of beer, which was the second batch we ever did. The first three releases were aged in barrels for 3, 5, and 9 months respectively, while this latest release spent a whopping 26 months in oak! Also, at one point in it's life it was racked into fresh wine barrels, which ended up giving it an insane amount of oaky flavors. Surprisingly, the acidity is extremely mellow in this beer. For our first couple batches we overpitched some Saison yeast, so it dried out really quickly, and the bacteria never really had a chance to take over. Since the beer was so old, I decided to double dry hop it with El Dorado, to ensure a healthy and vibrant amount of hop aroma. This beer explodes with aromatic complexity. Juxtaposing a fresh fruity hoppiness with a musty woody aged funk. I think it's the best dry hopped beer we've made so far.
++good El Dorado was packaged from two 300l French Oak red wine puncheons.
(Note: astute observers may notice a bottling date of 06/2017. That is incorrect. Took us a lot longer than we hoped to get around to finishing this beer. It was actually packaged on 09/2018, and dry hopped just a few days before that)
