COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Can I scream….” for more hops? You sure can. Two row American barley jammed packed with as much Apollo, Newport, Simcoe, Topaz, and Citra hops we could get our hands on, The Shape of Hops to Come is an 8.5% ABV American-styled imperial IPA that’s got a ton of bitterness, along with juicy, dank resiny pine-like, and citrus forward hop character that is worthy of it’s name. Dry hopped for two weeks this hop bomb has as much hop power we can muster!

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2017 Imperial without overpowering. Great balance act hop varietals, body vs bitterness. Sort of an update west coast Double. Worth drinking more than once if if you are welcoming of the high ABB. Pair with crystalline cheddar like Cabot cloth bound.

On tap at wexford Pub Whole Foods. Golden color, clear, not much head or lacing, quite clean and bitter finish, not as aromatic as some but definetly a full body and very nice DIPA.

Can thanks to dmac. Orange pour with a small head. Nose has plenty of onion. Pine cone. Some orange marmalade. Fairly strong booziness. Drinks as big as the nose sugggests. Heavy, boozy structure. Sweet grain and orange syrup. Pine and onion on the finish. As an old school IIPA it’s pretty solid, actually. Not necessarily in my wheelhouse, however.
