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.

GandGKevin (920) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle from Tim. All biscuity aromas with a very faint hop whiff. Biscuit and citrus flavors. Overall it?s decent. As it warmed up it became more alcoholic and not drinkable.

Bomber, pours heavily clouded amber with scant white head, pithy slightly bready aroma with some citrus accents and boozy esters, tons of pithy bitterness throughout, finishes moderately full and sweet with some burn on finish, a bit of a mess
