Style | ABV
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.

4.58/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Copped a case from the May 4th release...

A-Cloudy bright orange. Thick 3 finger head.

S-Grapefruit, bread/biscuits and citrus.

T-Smooth, hoppy, not too bitter.

M-Medium, high carbonation here

O-About to pour my second glass, writing this. Definitely in my top 5 IIPA. Not just saying that because they are literally 15 mins away. Go DC Brau!

4.2/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz can into a willibecher.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber/medium orange-brown and leaves a finger of sticky white head.

Smell: Resin, mild pine, malts, hint of citrus.

Taste: Citrus, some pine, resin, malts. Nice hop dominant, but with some good malt backbone.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium body. Smooth, slightly bitter mouthfeel.

Overall: A very nice, hop forward IPA, but very well balanced. Definitely a treat to drink. ABV is very well hidden.

Just got a 6-pack shipped in from DC, dated 4/11... so it's 5 days old. Lot's of lacing from a somewhat minimal head, deep copper color. Darker then I expected based on the description. Nose is weak, for 5 days old I would hope for more fruit, not getting much of anything. Super smooth, almost too malty but just within my tolerance. Tastes fantastic for the ABV, can't put a finger on what it reminds me of but it's damn good regardless. I was sad to trade Bissell Brothers to get this but after having two, i'm glad i got the shipment. Solid DIPA, i'd totally trade to get again.
