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.

Almost dense on the nose, it has a very sweet, resiny kind of half tropical half dank aroma to it. I could smell this beer all day long and not want to do anything else.

Beautiful, albeit slightly hazy honey color with the gradient to go with it. It has a nice thick head after the pour, but that dissipates rather quickly to leave a sea-foam-cap on the beer. Lacing is plentiful and pretty.

Wow! This beer is bitter, right up front that is the first thing that hits you. The carbonation hits like a freight train but subsides rather fast leading way to flavors of the tropics like lemon and lime citrus, light mango, and papaya. The body is quite moderate but nicely filling. This is a stellar beer, an IPA to set a new standard for the east coast.

Poured a light copper body with lace rings down the glass. An earthy, funky citric hop aroma with minimal sweet malts. Smooth, very hoppy of the citric variety along with a crisp, dry finish. The beer is balanced, not too hoppy, thanks to a little bit of grape flavors from hops as well and touches of bready/caramel sweetness. Overall, a well-balanced and designed IPA that is a great sipper.

Serving type: on-tap
