Top 10 beers in the world press

13th August, 2014 by Neal Baker

Toasted Oak IPA, Innis & Gunn, Edinburgh, Scotland

innisandgunnGerard Walen, of Paste Magazine, writes on this recent addition to Innis & Gunn’s “core repertoire of wood-aged beers, that hews to the traditional while giving a nod to the innovators.”

“Toasted Oak IPA is matured for 41 days over specially toasted American oak heartwood chips after being brewed using three charges of the British hop varieties Styrian Goldings and Goldings,” says Walen.

“The beer pours a light tan with a creamy head that does not dissipate much during the drinking. The hops give the Toasted Oak IPA a citrus fruit and pine tree aroma and flavor. The very noticeable oak presence offers both sweet vanilla notes and woody bitterness. The combined bitterness of the wood and hops brings a dryness to the tongue after each sip.”

IPA, 5.6%
