FOUNDERS DOOM IMPERIAL INDIA PALE ALE (AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS)

On tap at Julian’s Restaurant, highly impressive Double Trouble IPA gets aged in bourbon barrels and gains whiskey-daubed oaken vanilla warmth to elevate juicier fruited frontage. Resinous piney hop oiling embitters lemony grapefruit-orange peel briskness while contrasting tropical pineapple, mango, melon, tangerine, peach and apricot tang. Marmalade custard, coconut, almond and butterscotch nuances as well as maple-sugared spruce sapping enhance sweet caramel malting. Corn-sugared bourbon warmth pleasantly infiltrates the bright citric finish.
