MOON DOG SKUNKWORKS COGNAC BARREL DIPA

Moon Dog Skunkworks Cognac Barrel Aged Double IPA. My first beer by this different bunch from Melbourne. I hope the beer lives up to the impressive artwork.

I allowed it to warm before opening and was rewarded with an aroma that while not unpleasant did remind me of the name. Skunkworks more than Cognac.

It had the expected citrus and pine and malt with a slightly sour undercurrent that I don’t mind. At 9.7% ABV this is a bit more than a DIPA, but the raw alcohol taste is overshadowed by hop resin and musty cognac flavour. The dry bitter finish takes most of that away and you feel the need to have more to regain the sensation.

This is a very enjoyable  beer even though it occasionally felt like I was licking the inside of a cognac barrel. I look forward to more from these adventurous brewers.

 

8/10
