Rainy October Wednesday greetings all,
This October takes on a Hoptober feel for us starting tomorrow (Thursday October 11th) with the triumphant return of DIPAer DANKY Double IPA on tap! First released on 4/20 this year, DIPAer Danky was a smash hit and didn’t last long on tap at both of our locations. Expect a beautiful mix of dank, resiny, citrusy hops (Chinook, Simcoe, Mosaic, Rakau and Citra) coupled with a fairly significant malt backbone and balancing hop bitterness. The double dry-hopping combo of Rakau and Citra adds a wonderful lemongrassy/dank aroma. It finished out at 8.3% ABV.
DIPAer Danky is my homage to two classic DIPAs: Russian River’s Pliny the Elder and Heady Topper from The Alchemist!
It will be on tap at our Taproom (1444 E. Wash) at 3pm and our Westport Brewhaus at 4pm.
Next up for Parched Eagle Hoptober is the return of UTOPIAN w/Mosaic Imperial (Double) IPA! Our original DIPA is slated to be back on tap at both locations on Friday October 19th. This huge beer is a marriage of Maris Otter and Crystal malts, organic fair trade Demerara sugar, and waves of Simcoe, Chinook, Amarillo AND Mosaic hops! 9% abv and 107 IBUs.
Our original plan was to have a Double IPA Smackdown event with both these beers on tap on October 11th but issues with Utopian’s fermentation have dictated a delay for a week. What it comes down to is this: the yeast is in charge until it’s done doing it’s job. That said both will be on tap starting on 10/19 for smackdown tasting purposes! Sounds fun, huh?
THEN the following Friday (10/26) our flagship HOP-BEARER IPA returns on tap! And yes once again it’s Hop-Bearer w/Mosaic as the first batch with Mosaic hops in place of Citra (for flavor/aroma along with Amarillo) was an absolute smash hit at both locations and will be back by popular demand to round out our Hoptober releases.
Hop Heads of the world unite this Hoptober!
