COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of the many IPA’s to grace the AtG portfolio, this one is a departure. We took our two favorite things, beer and mothers milk, then did a mash up. Thus was born Booby Trap. A standard, boob, American IPA, with all the hop, boob, hop character and aroma. We used solid malt base of Munich, pale, and wheat malts; then ratcheted up the body and texture up with oats, boobs. Lastly, and the sugar on top, we added lactose sugar, lending a sweetness and level of texture to the IPA that creates a lingering hop flavor reminiscent of dreamscicle. Speaking of hops, Booby Trap features a blend the berry and citrus flavors prevalent in Pacific Gem and Motueka hops. The culmination of all these flavors will make your feel like you’re down under…sipping on mother’s milk….boobs….booby….boobies.
