Style | ABV
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 feel as if I have been wanting to taste this one
for years.
Now it is done.
Hype :Deserved.
Grateful I am.
Being a semi-local brewrey , DC Brau has impressed me before ie; The Corruption IPA.
OTWOA has really been an urban legend to me.
WOW.
A: Deep rich blurry orange.
S: Fruit salad caramel drizzle.
T: Pineapple citrus peppery burst evolves to a seemingly never ending dry hop finish.
ThankyousirmayIhaveanother!
Incredibly smooth for 9.2 abv = get comfortable enjoy and stay.
First sample was a goblet at lunch, now a growler shared tonight.
Thank you Lost Dog Cafe.
This beer excels from beginning to END. It's Armageddon!
