Eel River Brewing “Triple Exultation” Old Ale, 2013, California, 9.7% ABV, 80 IBU

16 Aug

DSCN1941-001CERTIFIED ORGANIC. Traditionally, Old Ales are an English style of dark, rich and sweet ale, typically with flavors of soft currant fruit and blackstrap molasses. While Old Ales typically have IBUs (bitterness) of 30-65, Eel River Brewing put their own spin on the style by adding extra hops to ramp up the IBUs to 80. As hinted at by the vintage on the bottle’s neck, this is a beer you can lay down and enjoy in another 5 years for a rich, complex drinking experience. 22 oz. $9
