Made from Racer IPA, this is one of the most interesting and riotous options in the moonshine category. The aromatics are sweet and funky, with a sour hoppy note. Although it’s hot—as would be expected at nearly 100 proof—bright flavors still emerge, tempered by a touch of sweetness and ginger-cinnamon fireworks. A surprising effervescence makes the flavors pop.
This whiskey presents expressive notes of malt, slightly sweet hops, pine, tropical fruits and hints of herbs.
(91º) This whiskey is distilled from Racer 5 beer, a hoppy American IPA made by Bear Republic Brewery Company in Northern California. This gold medal winning beer is distilled for nine days and then aged in French oak for 22 months.
