VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON July 27, 2015 – Ghost Runners Brewery is pleased to announce the release of Duathlon Black IPA, a beautifully balanced Northwest IPA united with the tradition of Old World English Ales.
Duathlon is a dry Black IPA with a clean and bright beginning, medium mouth-feel, mild roast, and a bold hoppy finish. Duathlon incorporates a premium grain bill including Munich, Maris Otter, and Canadian Honey malts. A similar grain profile to Ghost Runners Brewery’s popular Hellacious Repeats Double IPA gives Duathlon a dramatic start. CARAFA Special Type 3, Black Patent, and Chocolate malts are added to marry the IPA with the tradition of an English Ale. To balance the multi-layered malt bill, Duathlon introduces a flavorful hop profile to include UK Magnum, NW Chinook, and Warrior hops. It’s fermented with a traditional English ale yeast. Duathlon victoriously unites the flavors of a Northwest IPA and an Old English Ale like an athlete transitions between running and cycling.
Duathlon Black IPA will be available in the Ghost Runners Brewery tap room at 4216 NE Minnehaha St, Ste. 108 in Vancouver, WA beginning Thursday July 30th and at the Vancouver Brewfest August 7th – 9th.
