FOUNDERS DANKWOOD IMPERIAL RED IPA AGED IN BOURBON

On tap at The Oath, wondrous ‘alchemy of wood and hops’ leaves initial caramelized bourbon vanilla sweetness upon sharp IPA fruiting, resinous pine lacquer, charred oak tannins and rosy floral aromatics. Boozy whiskey, sherry and cedar-chipped rum tones provide lightly lingered alcohol burn to bourbon-soaked orange peel, pineapple, peach, cherry and red grape tang as well as tertiary molasses-sapped coconut, marshmallow and pecan snips.

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.
