Bavarian Barbarian 2x4 IPA - Update

BavarianBarbarian2x4ipa I’ve heard from Mike and he tells me the new Bavarian Barbarian 2x4 IPA is doing real well.  For those unfamiliar, 2x4 IPA is Mike’s latest brew.

The 2x4 IPA sports 65 IBUs from Columbus, Nugget and Amarillo hops.  The hoppiness is supported by the addition of flaked rye which provides a malty, bready character that works well with the hop flavors.  The hop additions give the 2x4 a well-rounded flavor profile with citrus and spice along with a pleasant, flowery and citrusy aroma.

2x4 is only available on draft now, but Mike tells me they are working on label approval and hope to have it in bottles in the near future….so stay tuned.
