Upper CaseUpper Case
Notes: UPPER CASE has a delicate, dry pilsner malt character with a smooth, soft, doughy mouthfeel from the raw wheat, oily hop resin which all serves as a canvas for this twice dry hopped 9% double IPA. Overripe mango, pineapple and passion fruit aromas leap out as the beer is poured. The impression of tropical fruit also takes the lead in the flavor which is layered further by white wine, pine resin and grapefruit zest. Hopped primarily with Mosaic with supporting roles played by Galaxy, Citra and Columbus.

MALT: Pilsner, Flaked Wheat, C-15, Dextrine, Dextrose

HOPS: Mosaic, Galaxy, Citra, Columbus

Exceptional hope load. Great lupulin bitterness, but balanced. The only way I can fault Upper Case is that it seems a tad watery and could be a little hazier -- related, I supppose.

Canned on 8/7/20, consumed on 9/15/20.

A: Poured from the can into a tulip glass. Body is hazy yellow-golden with a half-finger white head that settles fast.

S: Really nice nose - a strong nose that jumps out of the glass. Dank, green, raw hops and a lot of tropical fruit: mango, some pineapple, papaya.

T: Follows the nose, with mango, pineapple, citrus pith and peel, and a bite of leafy green hops. White grape skins as I take a few more sips (makes me wonder if Nelson hops are in the house tonight - wait . . . I see that's not the case, must be the Mosaic and Galaxy hops instead. . . ). Alcohol is noted as heat on the back of the palate. Good balance, with a nice bite of bitterness at the end, which lingers.

M: Juicy in feel, call it medium in heft/weight. Somewhat juicy up front, but lightly dry and chalky into the aftertaste. A bit of booziness.

O: Very good. A little too much alcohol, but otherwise a very well done brew.

Can dated August 4 - beer share at Canton St, thanks Zack!

Phenomenal. Tons of sweet mango but so perfectly balanced against a back drop of dank, chewy hops.

Oranges and pineapple in the glass. There is also pineapple with tangerine zest finish. Overall very fruity pineapple/orange melange.

On tap in Vermont. I do not remember where. Three Penny? Probably.

The pour is that of an NEIPA: Hazy, thick, and yellow.

The aroma is aggressively fruity and tropical. Nice, but, again, nothing too exceptional for the style.

Flavor is, again, nice. Well balanced. The fruitiness is pretty extreme but still well-rounded.
