American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.20% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
OTWOA is a single hop beer utilizing Falconers Flight. Brewed with just enough Pale malt, Cara-60, CaraPils and Malted wheat to carry the intense hop character onto the pallet.

At first glance, it has an orange hue in the glass with a viscus, rocky head that refuses to dissipate. Upon first sniff there are dominate aromas of citrus, white grapes and grapefruit with light bread and biscut notes. After the first sip we taste a mellow bitterness that only grows as more is consumed. Moderately carbonated, deceptively smooth, refreshingly dry and extremely heady for a beer at 9.2% ABV.

OTWOA exhibits all the necessary traits to be revered as a world class Imperial IPA.

Can: Poured a light amber color ale with a nice foamy head with excellent retention and some good lacing. Aroma of citrus and piney notes are quite intense but still very enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by citrus and piney notes with some floral notes but not as much as I had expected with a little bit of residual sugars. Body is full with good carbonation. Well brewed and quite enjoyable but maybe not up to those super floral Vermont IPAs.

Light citrus and grassy up front, strong and slightly bitter piney finish. Drinks pretty easily considering the high ABV. Great stuff!
