La Nouvelle Bière: Barrier Brewing Company Submersion Double IPA


Creation: Submersion Double IPA

Creator: Barrier Brewing Company

Date of Birth: 01/16/13

Description/Brewery Notes: Submersion Double IPA was brewed and sent to the tanks two days before Sandy reared her ugly head. It remained trapped for four-and-a-half weeks. We didn’t originally plan on bottling the beer, or calling it Submersion Double IPA, but due to the circumstances and our inability to clean kegs and transfer beer for the foreseeable future, we decided it was time to release our first bottled beer. It’s an east coast-leaning double IPA with a nice chewy body and smooth caramel malt finish. It’s balanced by a deep herbal hop bitterness with heavy notes of pine and gentle citrus. More of a sipper than a slammer with nice underlying alcohol warmth. Enjoy!
