You thought you loved our Sleepwalker before, but just wait until you see how it comes back to life as a barrel-aged Black IIIPA. This beer returns to IPA’s historical roots, where it was often shipped in barrels to survive the long journey.
But that’s about all that’s traditional. The special dark malts combine with west coast hops for a deep, onyx color and dank flavor. Then we let this monster rest in select bourbon barrels. When it springs back to life, we dry hop it with enough Centennial and Cascade hops to gnaw on even the most ardent hop head.
