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.
STYLE: Double IPA
INGREDIENTS: Citra, Mosaic, and Sabro hops; honey
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce Can (Limited)
Stats above taken from the brewery can.
Hazy, dark yellow burgeoning on bright orange with a light, fluffy, tight-bubbled head.
The honey sweetness popped, with citrus elements hitting next followed by hints of cantaloupe and apricot.
Some residual sweetness possibly from the honey mixes with the fruit-forwardness of the hops. Juicy but balanced.
Round and supple mouthfeel.
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.
