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.

Canned 12/27/13, bought at the brewery and placed in the fridge. Poured into my Perennial tulip.

Pours hazy orange, decent lacing, not much in the way of head retention.

Has a generic American hop aroma. Some grapefruit, a touch of resiny pine, a bit herbal and floral. Nothing stands out, and it's not as in your face as I'd expected.

Pretty much the same as the nose, plus booze and a bit of malt. Well balanced bitterness, so it's got that going for it.

A little on the heavy side, could use a bit more carbonation.

Overall, I am let down by this beer.
