BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Veil Brewing Co.
Virginia, United States
theveilbrewing.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.70%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Boss Man is the pinnacle of our sour IPA office series. Clocking in at 8.7% this kettle soured Double IPA is just insane. The most acidic(sour) of any sour IPA we've released so far. ABV is extremely well hidden as it drinks more like 6%. Hopped intensely with Citra, Simcoe, and Amarillo. This is just straight up sour juice and insane. We CANNOT wait for y'all to try this one.

Deep gold in color, translucent, with a large amount of head that settles to a a minimal amount with random bubbles.

Nose is muted mango on a swirl, lemon, and acid.

Taste is initially sweet followed by sour lemon, a bit of orange, lactose? and acid.

Mouthful is light, clean, with moderate carbonation. Finish is dry but clean.

Very drinkable beer. Reminds me of 4 Hands lemon gose. Very enjoyable, very palatable. Not too sour, not too sweet. No discernible hops though. Definitely try it out.

Creamy cloudy apricot-orange with a medium fizzy off-white head that dies to a bubbly film.

Smell is very floral, tart grapefruit, with some burnt toffee, pine, rug, graham and corn.

Taste is very mouth puckeringly tart. Lemon lime, orange zest, sour apple, a little grapefruit pith to keep it bitter with a little pine and rug, really bringing to mind a classic IPA being wildly soured. I've never had such a West Coast IPA background in a sour.

Fizzy, but medium body, and pretty dry. The sourness here definitely puckers the mouth, but it's not like drinking a classic lambic, gueuze or wild ale. It really is closer to a sour patch kid, with maybe a little dirt and pine needle on it.
