  • Canned on 4/720. Picked up from Iron&Glass; Minooka.

    A vigorous pour yields a cloudy beverage covered by a half snifter of white foam. Lacing is immediate: thick, sticky.

    Aroma of tropical fruit and citrus. The citrus is very distinct and present. Lemon and lime with the lime being more prevalent. Earth/herbal late. Limon (lemon and lime) begins to build as the beer warms.

    Taste is more citrus than the nose, especially in the finish. The lime lingers and may aid in the bitterness to the finish. Dank late. Almost pithy.

    Body is full with a nice creaminess that compliments. High end of carbonation for the style. Dry. Lingering bitterness.

    This is a very interesting beer. Motueka is a very strange hop to me, with an over abundance of lime. This beer doesn't get there but darn close. The hop profile creates interest and complexity. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Like particles colliding in the Tevatron Particle Collider that was once in Batavia, IL, the hops in this beer create an explosion of flavor in this Double Dry Hopped Double IPA. We use huge additions of Vic Secret, Ella, and Motueka hops to create a tropical fruit extravaganza over a base of Golden Promise, Pilsner, Malted Oats, and Flaked Wheat.

    One of our favorite beers, the hop profile is heavy tropical fruit. We tatse notes of ripe mango, papaya, passion fruit and pineapple.
