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.

Can.

A- out of a can so all I can judge here us the creepy winged fucker, looks cool though.

S- lots of citrus. Grapefruit and orange with just a touch of pine and grass.

T- super hopped. Like the smell, there's lots of citrus and fruit. Definitely a bitter bite being a DIPA, but not too dry or bitter. Alcohol present though.

M- light to medium bodied. Carbonation very noticeable.

O- very good DIPA. Has a small bite, but mist things do with high ABV. I'd buy this again and again if given the chance. Definitely my favorite out if DC area for now.
