COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our double IPA collaboration with The Charleston Beer Exchange. Last year’s batch was a single-hopped Cascade double IPA brewed with 50 lbs of fresh grapefruit and was released on draft only. This year’s version (in our opinion) blows the first batch out of the water. The malt bill is simplified, resulting in a lighter, drier beer – which allows the massive hop additions to shine through. A mix of fresh grapefruit, lemons, limes, and oranges was added to the boil, and this batch also features a blend of several different American and New Zealand hop varieties, instead of just Cascade.

Comprada en Cervezorama. Me ha encantado esa doble IPA. Apariencia turbia, dorada-ámbar con espuma rocosa y persistente. Aroma claramente a cítrico, sobre todo pomelo. Quizá tenía demasiado la astringencia de la fruta pero un amargor firme y un dulzor equilibrado. Una IPA muy agradable, que recomendaré.

22oz. Nice light amber pour, with minimal head. Citrus and malts on the nose. A little malt forward with a nice bitter finish and the grapefruit really shines. Really enjoying this and wish I had grabbed several on my way through Columbia (Too close to the Gamecocks, had to run).
