The base beer for Bishop’s Barrel No. 11 is Endeavour, our double IPA (Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus hops). We aged BB11 for four months in Smooth Ambler gin barrels, which previously held bourbon. Final beer is a blend of 80% barrel aged Endeavour and 20% fresh Endeavour. The result is BB11, or as we refer to internally, Gindeavour. It pours a beautiful copper color with an off white head. The nose is a spicy mix of hops, wood, juniper and a hint of bourbon. There is a bitter up front that is balanced with a nice malt backbone throughout. Piney resiny hops balance with the juniper/gin character. There is a warming alcohol note in there too. The finish is focused with the hop bitter, malt and gin character all giving a pleasant linger.
