Odell Brewing Co. is hoping its newest bottle release will sneak into your fridge.
First released as a draft-only option late last year, Barrel Thief is a 10.3 percent ABV imperial IPA that has been aged in oak barrels.
“The hop has met its match!” reads the beer label. “Barrel Thief is an Imperial IPA that was stolen form the brewhouse and stated away in medium toast, new American oak barrels. The brew features a notorious tropical fruit hop character that tangles with hints of vanilla, dried fruit, and toasted almond from its time served in the barrel.”
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the new bottle-conditioned beer from the Fort Collins, Colo.-based brewery will be packaged in 750ml bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional details was not returned.
