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.

poured 12oz can into snifter. Canned on 8/8/14.

A - Dark hazy apricot color with a 1 finger white head. Fades to a ring and leaves swaths and spots of lacing on glass.

S - Nice and fruity, with some melon and malt sweetness. Notes of citrus, tropical, with apricot and pineapple. Hints of caramel and a bit of pine.

T - Begins with sweet and fruity flavor. Dominated by caramel and citrus, tropical notes. I find the apricot, but not the pineapple in the aroma. Some grapefruit and caramel make an appearance. Finish has a nice pine bite to it.

M - Medium body, lower carbonation, with an oily feel. Leaves a bitterness on the palate.

O - A nice canned IIPA with a big flavor. I had it just under 3 months and imagine that it is even more flavorful fresh.

12 oz can courtesy of air bnb renters from DC. Poured into snifter.
A: pours cloudy golden orange, half finger brilliant white foam head, some subtle stringy lacing
S: first sniff brings orange oil to mind, citrus, some honey suckle, sweet malt, grapefruit, slight earthy hop aroma too
M: medium body, thin creamy texture coats the tongue
T: grapefruit, citrus, orange, the hop profile is there but the malt balances out very well, sweet malt, pine resin, some earth/fresh dirt notes
O: wow I'm impressed with this brew! This brew is pretty well balanced-hops vs.malt. They must have some awesome yeast strain....
