Special Release Series. Babylon is an English take on an American style of the traditionally English India Pale Ale. Originated for the long voyage from England to India, and adopted as the quintessential Northwest beer style, IPA’s have a strong presence in the modern craft beer scene. This big Double IPA is influenced by its English roots, but firmly planted in the modern stylings of Northwest brewing, and enjoyable to hop enthusiasts everywhere!
Marris Otter malt from the UK was used along with Biscuit malt to create a rich, nutty backbone to this super hoppy beer. The hop aroma begins with intense earthiness from the prolific use of English- Style Fuggle hops. There is a depth that includes apricots, peaches, a hint of mango, and a fruity hop character to balance the copious malts. This is carried on to the palate with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel from the flaked barley, making for a very flavorful and very enjoyable beer.
