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.

Can into tulip. Pours hazy opaque honey brown-orange with tall head, settles to a finger of bone-colored foam. Eventually just a cap. Aromas include citrus, resin, mint, buttery malts. Tastes of resin, pine hops, citrus hops, leaves, minimal malt sweetness, and a touch of alcohol. Medium bodied, with creamy/slick mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and a dry finish that builds in bitterness.

Actually a bit reminiscent of Heady Topper, similar balance.

A - Golden yellow bit cloudy upon pour and drink. Light head quickly dissolving leaving a nice lace on the glass

S - Fruity, sensitive hop profile, delicious

T - Wonderful citrus profile, followed by a bready yeast chaser.

F - Felt like a Double Ipa should . Slightly boozy with a light carbonation on the back of the throat

O - AWESOME.. loved it.

Perhaps my favorite IIPA at the moment. Brilliant orange/amber pour. Floral and fruity. Dry finish. deeply satisfying, dangerously drinkable.
