BEER INFO

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

Style: American Double / 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.

12oz can served in a pint glass. Canned on 10/04/17.

Pours a clear amber with a small head and not much carbonation. Smell is booze, citrus, and hop resin.

Taste is a little boozy, strong honeysuckle, grapefruit rind finish.

Mouthfeel is slightly effervescent, moderately thick. It's good.

Pours pale copper-gold with minimal head and some lacing into glass. Smell is of bitter hops, malt, and some tropical fruit. Taste is where this shines- notes of orange, apricot, and assorted tropical fruits with a bit of malt to balance. Crisp and well carbonated but no harshness, bitterness, or thinness. ABV is remarkably well hidden. Overall, very solid offering.
