BEER INFO

Brewed by:
DC Brau Brewing Co.
District of Columbia, United States
dcbrau.com

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.20%

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.

An incredible beer. Strong and bitter, with a wonderful color and a beautiful head. The smell is quite good: this is a beer that even once I have finished, Ill go back to smell the can. One of my favorite Imperial IPAs!

Look- pours clear golden orange w/1 finger off white head

Aroma- grapefruit and mango with some grainy sweetness

Taste- follows nose; sweet bready malt up front followed by mango than intense grapefruit bitterness

Feel- medium light bodied

Overall- DIPA with intense hop flavor kept in check by a nice malt backbone
