Hi-Wire Oak Fermented Imperial IPA with Brett will be the 5th entry in the brewery’s on-going Single Barrel Series.
The Asheville, North Carolina based brewery’s South Slope location was turned into a sour/wild/experimental facility, shortly after the brewery opened their new production facility.
Hi-Wire Oak Fermented Imperial IPA with Brett is a city hopped India pale ale, aged in white wine barrels with the brewery’s mixed culture (wild yeast, and souring bacteria) and and bottled conditioned with Brettanomyces yeast.
Batch #5 of the Single Barrel Series is a single malt, single hop Imperial IPA (9.5% ABV) brewed and aged in a white wine barrel with Brettanomyces for 8 months. Dank tropical fruit & bright citrus notes from Citra hops blend perfectly with earthy brett funk & oak in this big complex beer with a smooth, warming finish.
