BARREL-AGED FRUITED SOUR ALE
Our brewers are relentlessly trying to find ways to make new and interesting combinations of flavors so they took two of their favorites, Persimmon and Pawpaw and found that these fruits provide an excellent amount of extraction on a 2nd use. They aged Persimmon and Pawpaw on Basis and then dry hopped with Mosaic hops to complement the tropical notes from the fruits creating a wonderfully tropical and balanced sour ale. Hopperpaw pours with a rich golden straw appearance with slight haze. Aromas of banana, citrus, papaya, mango are accompanied by tart and floral notes. Flavors of tangy banana and tropical fruits with slight sweetness envelope the palate. Mouthfeel is dry with mild custard notes in the finish.
