Space Ghost Golden Session Barleywine
A Note on This Beer
Everyone wants a piece of America’s reigning “alpha king” Melvin Brewing -- including Northwest heavyweight Ecliptic Brewing. They unite their epic hop powers in one cosmic collaboration: The mega-tropical Space Ghost Golden Session Barleywine.
“Golden Session Barleywine” is nothing more than code for a Double IPA. Soaking up an universe’s worth of Citra, Mosaic, Galaxy, and Southern Cross Hops into a deeply fruity 8% ABV base, there’s nothing “sessionable” about Space Ghost’s flavor -- it unites Melvin’s aggressive hop magic with Ecliptic’s juicy-fruit focus into a bold and hoppy summer sipper.
Space Ghost’s deep clementine-hued pour awakens your nose with ripe ataulfo mangoes and cantaloupes from Galaxy and Southern Cross Hops. Mosaic Hops grace the tongue with tangy tangerine rinds and papaya juice, then Citra comes in with lemongrass vibrancy and a kiss of limeade.
We’ll take any chance we can to taste Melvin’s hop skills, and getting a boost from Ecliptic’s knack for fruit-focus is like getting your craft cake and drinking it, too. SPACE GHOST!
