Other Notes: 15 IBUs. Hops – Citra and Mosaic. Yeast/microbes – Amalgamation II. Barrels – s003 & s004 French oak
Brewer Description: (from bottle) One barrel was pre-acidified before fermentation then we blended and dry hopped both to give us a more balanced acidity. Gives an abundance of tropical fruit and a moderate level of funk.
