American Double / Imperial IPA |  12.50% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
New World Double IPA is massive hop-bomb brewed Local Option Bierwerker. Aggressively late-kettle and dry hopped with four quintessential varietals of American hops; this beer is built like houses used to be built. A strong malt backbone balances a rich, flavorful palate of citrus fruit with floral and earthy notes. No adjuncts or extracts of any type were used in this beer.
