Habitante Espíritu is our second oak-aged collaboration with North Peak Brewing Company. For this beer, we blended a batch of North Peak’s Diabolical (American IPA) with a specially brewed batch of North Peak’s Dweller (Double White IPA) and then inoculated the oak with a small amount of our mature Oro de Calabaza.
The light esters and spice profile of the Belgian Wit yeast accents the American hop flavors and aromas and creates tropical, sweet citrusy and grapefruit notes. You are left with a sweet and soft, full bodied mouthfeel, bright tartness, and dry bitter finish.
