BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Adroit Theory Brewing Company
Virginia, United States | website

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
G/I/A/A is a Citra based hop beast. Massive amounts of hops in the boil with an emphasis on aromatics. Post boil is a run through the HopRocket followed by several rounds of dry hopping in primary and secondary fermentation.

To tie in with the Molotov Cocktail theme we were going for we soaked some ash wood in Belvedere Vodka. We then aged the beer on the wood staves to give it a more robust mouth feel.

Very unique brew. Pours a hazy orange color with minimal head. What head was there did stick around well. Smells of burnt wood and slight sweetness. Taste of hops is up front, the citra shows through even in the after taste. On the tail end you can taste the wood big time. The wood favors and hops blend perfectly in the middle of the taste. Great beer. Excited for these guys to grow.

Clear brown color. Off white head. Strong dark fruit notes from the malt. Hints of vanilla and wood. Nice pine notes. Bourbon notes are pretty good. A bit rye spice to it. Taste is strong bourbon with a nice rye spice to it. Hop bitterness is pretty good. Feel is slick and heavy but nice. Go for it.

Ghost-195, sequence 340 of 450. Poured from a cork and cage into a snifter, the beer is a deep, dark, ruby-highlighted caramel coloring with a clingy, foamy, bubbly, off-white head. Aromas of mango, rich caramel, hints of wood and smoke, and a hops blend of deep resin and pepper spice. Flavors are a powerful blend of tropical fruit sweetness and rich caramel forward, with a blast of pepper spice, smoke, and wood to follow. Pineapple, mango, melon, and passion fruit blends with rich, roasted caramel, a good balance of light and dark sweetness, all on a roasted, woody, and boozy backbone. Smooth, robust, and slick in mouth, with a heavily roasted, richly sweet, balanced aftertaste. The finish is slick, smooth, and transitions to a fairly light feel, with a solid bitter and dank linger. This might be the most unique DIPA I've ever tasted.
