Dan tastes Pulp Fission Double IPA from 3 Disciples Brewing, care of @thecraftbeerconcierge earlier during the pandemic.
STYLE: American Hazy Double IPA
INGREDIENTS: Citra, Mandarina Bavaria hops
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce Can (Year-Round)
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and website.
Opaque, burnt orange in color with a fluffy, off-white head.
Huge, beautiful blend of Mandarin, Navel, and other oranges with a hint of tangerine.
Straight up juice with some sweetness initially peaking with a hint of pith coming later.
Soft, mouth-coating, and supple on the palate with an off-dry finish and moderate level of carbonation.
I was totally craving a Royale with Cheese when I saw this label. In all seriousness, this beer would kill with various different cheddars. The fruity orange notes might be refreshing with fish or seafood dishes or perhaps even some lighter fowl/poultry preparations like Orange Chicken that will not overpower the beer.
Thank you so much to Allo aka The Craft Beer Concierge for sharing this during the pandy.
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
