The Innis & Gunn Completionist Blog That Also Sometimes Drinks Whisky Chapter Several Dozen – 15 Barrel Aged Double IPA. This is kind of unfair because I don’t like IPAs but no one else is here.
The 15 (pronounced fif-teen, like the number) marks 15 years of barrel aging beer at Innis & Gunn. The IPA is also barrel aged in specifically 15 year whisky barrels, which makes it feel like it needs a third 15-related thing to resolve the chord or make the joke.
Always glad to try a new Innis & Gunn but this one was a little underwhelming. Here’s what I thought:
nose – pineapple, almost numbing, in the glass, chocolate in the bottle
taste – smoother than expected, lower hops than expected. lots of chocolate & smooth
finish – clean, almost non-existent
overall – 6.6/10
