BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Weyerbacher Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States
weyerbacher.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.20%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Jester’s Tree is a collaboration brew between Weyerbacher and our friends at Naparbier of Spain. This hearty Imperial IPA weighs in at 9.2% ABV and 100 IBU. With over 7.5 pounds of hops per barrel, this hop explosion will give Hopheads everywhere something to cheer about!

We used Apollo, El Dorado and Hopsteiner Experimental Hop 06300 throughout the entire brewing process, from kettle to whirlpool (not to mention the multiple dry hop additions). The result? The perfect balance between bitterness and the maltiness of Pale and Melanoidin malts that makes you happy to be alive.
Hints of orange and coconut give The Jester’s Tree a tropical and fruity flavor, making this the perfect beer to enjoy on the beach or on the deck!

A: Soft pour not much of a lacing beer has a beautiful hazy rich amber color

S: smells like a resinous hop cone was just shoved up my nostrils very deep very rich but pure resin

T: very resinous beautiful really and bitter slight bite of alcohol

M: Nice coating of resin then shallow in the feel I thought it be thicker a lot of lingering booze

O: I'm not a weyerbacher fan at all this is pretty solid though I like it's just pure resin bomb and boozy nothing wrong with either

A: deep amber, cloudy; centered into a pint got a hefty head a few fingers high; lace lines left down the glass

S: candied oranges, citric and sweet, resinous pine; hints of spice and something like caramel

T: fruity, perhaps tropical - passion fruity or something like that; citrus still coming in with lots of orange; the pine takes a backseat; slightly sweet and slightly chewy pale malts provide ample body for the bittering hops

M: medium-full, dense and bitter; slight stick on the finish; moderate carbonation on the tongue

O: a real nice DIPA - brewery only release apparently - I cannot imagine any DIPA fan coming away unhappy. Drink 'em if you got 'em.
