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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-a dark hazy golden orange with a thin layer of white head that leaves a ring around the top

S-smell is of citrus, tropical fruits, malt, and pine

T-taste is very similar to the smell with citrus, tropical fruits, and a piney finish

M-medium body, moderate carbonation

Overall a very hopped up DIPA with enough malt and tropical fruits to make drinkable

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look - copper/amber type color, clear in appearance
Smell - Dank, pine, grapefruit, savory notes, earthy
Taste - Tons of onion/garlic notes in this one. Grapefruit, pine, citrus and some unripe pineapple come thru as well

Overall - HUGE DIPA here. Tasty as well but semi disappointed to be honest.
