Formerly brewed at Voodoo Brewing Co.
Meadville, Pennsylvania USA
10.2% · Imperial IPA · 8 Ratings · Series Seasonal ·
Part of the Hashtag Series #cibola is a Triple IPA brewed with honey, hopped at over 5lb/bbl, and triple dry hopped. #cibola (or Nic Cage: Great Actor or Greatest Actor?) It’s no secret that Nicolas Cage is the world’s greatest method actor. On his journey to find #cibola and its #GoldenPromise of #elDorado, Nic Cage (or The Cage, as his buds call him) inspired a small brewery in downtown Meadville, Pennsylvania (that’s us) to create an epic triple IPA that could live up to the epic-ness that is Nic Cage. It just seemed like destiny when we had bags of Golden Promise malt and an abundance of el Dorado hops. So #cibola was born. It’s a hop bomb with 5 lbs of hops per barrel (that’s 50 lbs of hops total) of mostly el Dorado and Galaxy hops. (These hops produce more of a citrus note, rather than overly bitter and grapefruity one). Even with the 30 lbs. of local and organic honey (to give those yeasty creatures something more to munch on) and the added honey malt, the beer isn’t overly sweet like your typical triple IPAs. And because we’re not biased at all, we think it’s a highly drinkable 10.2% ABV triple IPA that will appeal to even the most staunch Hop Haterz. Plus, it looks sexy in a glass:
