There are few things I love more than a hoppy knock-you-on-your-butt IPA. And Laura Alberts on Daniel Island is tapping two today, April 7.
Here's details from their Web site:
Tomorrow we are excited to be tapping some great Double IPAs! 1st up is the Abita Select Double IPA - this beer is so NEW it only has 7 reviews on BeerAdvocate and not enough reviews on RateBeer to even post a percentile score! Come get it while its fresh, this double IPA is delicious! From the website:
“Our Double IPA is made with pale and light crystal malts. It is going to give the beer a deep pale color and malty flavor. It will also give it a very strong taste. It is hopped liberally with Apollo, Cascade, Chinook, and Centennial hops. This is going to give the beer a pleasant bitter taste and an intense hop flavor and aroma. The extra bitterness will mix with the strong sweet flavor from the malt to give the beer a very balanced taste. The result is a very bold and flavorful IPA.”
Not to be forgotten, our 2nd hoptacular beer on tap will be none other than the Southern Tier Oak-Aged Un*earthly Double IPA. Reeling in a whopping score of 98 of RateBeer, this 11.00% ABV Double IPA is a reason to look forward to all that is Spring! One of our favorite seasonals here, the Oak-Aged Un*earthly captures all the great pine resin hop flavors of it’s un-oaked brother, but is draped in a blanket of toast, orange peel, tangerine, malt – with a satisfying, hoppy finish that will invite your tongue back for another sip
