Notes/Commercial Description:
E is definitely not a Belgian IPA - it's a funky version of Edward (american pale ale) - fermented with brettanomyces, dry hopped with galaxy, and aged on stainless for four months. Basically, we refer to it as a farmhouse pale ale - a cross between a saison and an american pale.

2012 Release: Aged in Mimosa barrels.
2014 Release: Aged in wine barrels with resident yeast and microfloa for 1.5 years.

At Capone's today...

The beer pours a golden amber color with very good head retention and lacing. The nose is very impressive and complex, showcasing citrus, light clove, considerable funk and slight sour. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this dry, hoppy, Belgian IPA, and I'm impressed by the melange of flavor I get. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, with a hoppy, bitter, funk infused finish. The alcohol is barely noticeable in this excellent beer.

Impressive...
