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.

Straight from Local Option tap. Small thin head with a rose to copper hue. The aroma is of citrusy hops and sweet barley. The first sip is sweet malt then rose hops and then citrus hop finish. The sweetness tells you that you are drinking a high gravity beer. After a few sips the body warms ever so slightly or it could have been that bloody mary I had for breakfast, hard to say. The beer is slightly syrupy and definitely a sipper.

Serving type: on-tap
