Notes / Commercial Description:
This amplified version of Congress Street IPA is a focused exhibition of the Galaxy Hop. Milky and yellow-orange in appearance, Double Dry Hopped Congress Street emits fragrant aromatics of mango, pine resin, grapefruit, pineapple, and peach. Explosive flavors of tropical fruit, grassy hop, nectarine, orange rind, and creamy malt inundate the palate with a thick, rich mouthfeel and soft, effervescent carbonation. The finish is full and oily, yet clean, with a light, modest bitterness.

MALT: American 2-row Barley, White Wheat, C-15, Dextrine, Dextrose

HOPS: Galaxy, Columbus

A gorgeous looking beer. It develops a murky yet still somewhat bright pulpy OJ color, as if a flashlight is shone under muddy water. The head is puffy and creamy, 3 fingers to start, and recedes to a thin ring. Can't get any better.

Aroma. Yes. Freshly juiced oranges, breakfast grapefruit, grapefruit juice, squished grapes, pineapple.

If there's a such thing as hoppy orange juice, this is it. It's just impeccable. Very pithy, very juicy, only suggestions of pine and herbal hop. A clean yet still resinous finish. IBU's are low, but the hop flavor and complexity is there in spades. I can't believe what I'm drinking.

Feel is crisp, clean, soft, and resinous.

Overall? Might be the best damn IPA on the planet. Moistened my eyes. Mind blown.
