Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: russwbeck on 02-17-2012

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.

Poured from 12 oz can dated 2/23/2015.

A: Pours a cloudy golden yellow with generous 3 finger fluffy off white head that seemed to last forever and leaving some nice stringy lacing.

S: Light citrus, grapefruit, floral hops, and some biscuit malts. Faint hints of pineapple and lemon.

T: Fresh squeezed citrus combined with a fairly substantial malt backbone. A touch of honey sweetness.

M: Medium body with a slightly bitter hop finish.

O: Very enjoyable DIPA. If this was in my distribution area, it would be a regular purchase.

Thank to shanem12
Look was initially 1/2 a finger of head the after a minute, it went away. Smell is fairly malty with some nuttiness. Initial taste Nutty, with some subtle ester. It has a nice malt backbone. Also, this drinks more like 6% to me, it is actually 9.2%. Damn, they hide the alcohol pretty well.
