A Note on This Beer
Walk into Barrel Culture’s taproom, and you’ll have your choice of USA Today-lauded* brews to choose from. But, wise craft fans ask for what the brewers are drinking — a cold pint of Desperado!
The Barrel Culture brewers say, out of all their award-winning brews, they’re “really digging” this Imperial West Coast IPA hopped with Columbus, Citra, Motueka, and Simcoe. A few refreshing gulps, and it’s crystal clear why!
Pungent scents of sweet orange and earthy kush rise up on the nose, and the flavor is pleasantly bittersweet and balanced. Notes of sweet stone fruit and bright citrus mingle with grapefruit pith and woody pine. All the evergreen flavor tames the boozy 8.6% ABV, making this Imperial hard to put down — every sip begs another.
Local fans dig this one, too. @Tom W. calls it, “one smooth west coaster,” and @Joseph G. says it’s simply the “Best traditional Imperial I’ve had.”
With Desperado, you’re getting the best of Barrel Culture — a classic, clean IPA with the refined tastes of these expert brewers. Most of us aren’t master-level brewers, but that doesn’t mean we can’t drink like them!
After opening their doors in 2017, BeerAdvocate named Barrel Culture Brewing and Blending one of the 50 Best New Breweries and USA Today put them on their list of Top 20 Best New Breweries!
