Hood River, OR - May 12th, 2016 - Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom releases Oak Barrel Aged Pale Death, the second batch in their barrel aged beer series. This special release IPA is available in the bottle at the Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom located in downtown Hood River and will be found in limited quantities throughout the Northwest, British Columbia, and Southern California.
"The blending process began with a bunch of beakers on the round table in the Vicar room. A handful of brewers were in on the tasting of various blending percentages, and I feel we came up with something really special. We don't get to use new oak that often, so this was really good to experience."Brewer, Matt Coughlin.
Oak Barrel Aged Pale Death
Belgian Style Imperial IPA
9.5% ABV, 93BU
Description: When we got a hold of these beautiful , brand spankin’ new barrels, we wasted no time filling them with a batch of Pale Death from 2015 we had in the tanks. A little over a year later, we blended back in some of the 2016 batch of Pale Death to bring some youth to the honeyed and wooden vanilla aromas that came from the aging. The tannins accentuate the bitterness, and the extra age provides a deeper wisdom to the beer.About Double Mountain Brewery and Taproom: Double Mountain Brewery and Taproom was established in 2007 in the heart of downtown Hood River, OR.
