The White Hag (IE)
Beann Gulban BA 2017
Fionn MacCumhaill was a giant; a brave legendary warrior. He was father to Oisin, Little Fawn (our Session IPA), and his wolfhounds were Bran & Sceolan (our Irish IPA). So, there was never any doubt over what we would name our hugely hoppy Double IPA. A flawless balance of bitter and juicy, with a robust backbone, it is truly a giant of a beer. At 8.5% ABV, it proudly stands, as the patriarch of The White Hag family of IPAs.
Fionn is a modern, New World-style DIPA, extremely pale with a focus on late and dry hop additions to create an intensely fruity IPA. The absence of oats or lactose allows some bitterness to shine through allowing for a more balanced, moreish finish.
Intense citrus and tropical fruits dominate the flavour and aroma. A lush backbone of Irish pale malt supports the heavy hop bill creating a well-balanced finish that leans towards bitter.
Water, barley, hops & yeast.
