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.

I have had this in a can and 22oz bottle. Served in a DC Brau tulip and a FFF teku.

First I gotta thank my main man Crabbicus. He is probably the greatest BA I've ever had the pleasure of exchanging beer with.

Anyways, I'm not gonna go into to much detail on the intricacies of this brew. I'm on number 3 and can barely feel my face.
Find this beer. You will not regret it. It's a wonderful brew! The falconers flight hops shine! So many great citrus tastes! Orange, grapefruit, maybe some lemon. This is one of my top 3 beers, and I'm a stout porter guy. I can't get enough of this. Amazing.
Hats off to the boys at the Brau.
Cheers!
