Double Mountain Releases BRUT IPA in Bottles

Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom has a BRUT IPA for its next seasonal. The Hood River-based brewery has crafted a light, dry and hop heavy take on the emerging Brut IPA sub-style.

More from the press release:

The sparkling BRUT India Pale Ale uses champagne yeast to deliver a dry, bubbly and elegant IPA. Available in refillable 500ML bottles and draft at our Hood River Taproom and SE Portland Taproom in the Woodstock neighborhood and throughout the Northwest.

An elegant IPA fermented with French Champagne yeast, blushing with honeyed apple and ripe citrus aromas. A no nonsense, get-out-of-my-way malt bill sings the parallel harmonies with the hops and yeast. Dry, light, and oh so bubbly.

“This IPA is all about the champagne yeasts, the extra long fermentation gives the beer is dryness and along the hop aromas to sing strong,” said Matt Swihart, Owner and Brewmaster. “Also, I would be lying if I did not say I’m in love with the gold foil on the bottles. I love the beer, its a fabulous blend of wine making and brewmastery and the bottle looks fantastic.”
