World-Class
Notes: A Virginia Beer Co. and Tapped Crafthouse & Tapped Gastropub Collaboration. Voted as one of BeerAdvocate's Top 25 New Beers of 2018.

How many hops? ALL THE HOPS. Boasting a 3+ pounds per barrel double dry-hop with Citra and Simcoe. A big, badass beer for a big, badass team-up. Bask in the succulent and tropical flavours of this ultra-smooth DDH DIPA, with just enough hop bite on the back-end to remind you to double tap for love of lupulin.

For the first time ever, find cans of this 8% DIPA at VBC in early February and draft EXCLUSIVELY at Tapped Crafthouse & Tapped Gastropub in late February.

This beer is bursting with flavor! Juicy. Smooth. Citrus. Pineapple. A nice bite on the backend without being overwhelmingly bitter on the finish. Really glad they decided to can this the second time around!

Poured a cloudy yellow body with good head and lace sheath. Aroma has grapefruit and some light tropical fruit smells with little else. Smooth, clean, light body, there is a touch of floral crispness that keeps beer from cloying as beer is mostly a sweet, fruit beer. Finishes crisp/dry with well-hidden ABV.
