Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
First Release: February 2014
India pale ales harness the inherent flavor characteristics of hops to bring forward familiar flavors of pine, resin, spice, and citrus. In some cases, those botanicals are so potent, they exactly mirror specific edibles. Such is the case with Centennial hops, which hail from the Great Northwest and come across on the palate like a mouthful of citrus fruit. That sensation is amplified with this, the first beer introduced via the Stochasticity Project–a double IPA brewed with Centennial, Chinook and Magnum hops as well as an immense dosing of fresh grapefruit peel. The result is over-the-top bittersweet grapefruit intensity that is at once refreshing and bracing in its citrusy bitterness.

22oz bottle: Hiding in the back of the fridge. This one pours a clear golden color. Minimal head and no lacing. Grapefruit and lemony nose. The taste is good. Grapefruit and lemon hop flavors with a fair amount of bitterness. Good malt body, but any residual sweetness is masked by the hops. Very nice. Hopefully they will brew it again!

Grapefruit melds nicely with citrusy hops, malt still shines through. Pale golden with soft white head. Tart citrus in aroma and taste. Smooth despite the high abv.
