Space Eagle is an IPA that went through its primary fermentation and secondary maturation in a french oak Foeder. The beer spent 10 months aging and gaining its distinct pungent pineapple character from the exposure to Brettanomyces bruxellensis. It was dry hopped heavily with Citra and Hallertau Blanc, then bottle and keg conditioned for 3 months with Brett brux.
This beer will continue to evolve in the bottle if stored in a cool, dark place. However, the intensity of the hop character will fade over time. The name is a nod to the former owner of the foeder it was aged in: Screaming Eagle Winery in Napa Valley, CA.
