Life On Tap Episode #252: Big Shooter

Dan tastes another one care of Laura in the Daddy Porter’s Beer Group from WI’s The Brewing Projekt, a double IPA called Big Shooter.

The Brewing Projekt Big Shooter

STYLE: Double IPA
INGREDIENTS: Citra, Mosaic, and Sabro hops; honey
ABV: 8.0%
IBU: N/A
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce Can (Limited)

Stats above taken from the brewery can.

Appearance

Hazy, dark yellow burgeoning on bright orange with a light, fluffy, tight-bubbled head.

Aroma

The honey sweetness popped, with citrus elements hitting next followed by hints of cantaloupe and apricot.

Taste

Some residual sweetness possibly from the honey mixes with the fruit-forwardness of the hops. Juicy but balanced.

Mouthfeel

Round and supple mouthfeel.

Overall

This beer masks the 8% ABV quite well. I was feeling varied cheddars, fondue, or tagine-based dishes to highlight the citrus elements.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
