Description 

Combining two of craft beer’s most popular categories, Barrel-Aged Gunnpowder IPA brings together a fresh and vibrant IPA that is accentuated by the flavors of bourbon barrel aging.

Innis & Gunn Barrel Aged Gunnpowder IPA is an American inspired India Pale Ale brewed with Summit, Cascade, and Citra hops and finished over untoasted bourbon barrels. The beer is 5.6% ABV and has 54 IBUs.
