India Barleywine – From Odell Brewing
From TFP: We just cracked the new Bourtbon Barrel Stout the other day. Can’t wait to try this hoppy monster! Seems Odell is on quite the roll lately.
Odell Brewing Introduces Second Single Serve Brew
Fort Collins, Colo. – On October 5, 2009, Odell Brewing Company will release India Barleywine, the second in a series of single serve 750 ml offerings.
Part double IPA and part malty sweet barleywine, India Barleywine is a unique and complex beer. Copious amounts of malts and hops intertwine giving the beer exceptional flavor and aroma. When enjoyed fresh, India Barleywine delivers a bright hop character, and when cellared, flavors of dried fruit emerge.
“We wanted to share our pilot brewing system creations beyond our Tap Room,” said Brendan McGivney, head of production, “so we decided to offer some of our most highly regarded brews in 750 ml, cork and cage bottles. Our single serve beers are bottle conditioned to allow for natural carbonation, and they will continue to age and evolve gracefully for years to come.”
India Barleywine rings in at 9.7% ABV with an impressive 90 IBUs. It follows the brewery’s Bourbon Barrel Stout in a series of single serve offerings that will also include Mountain Standard, an ale featuring Colorado grown organic hops.
Odell Brewing will offer samples of India Barleywine on October 5th during an uncorking event in the brewery’s Tap Room. India Barleywine will be available in the brewery’s eight state distributor region and will retail for around $14.99-$15.99 per bottle.
