In November of 2016, we released IwanttoBU, a 0 IBU Double IPA collaboration with The Veil that we designed together after meeting their incredible team at their inaugural Forever Summer Festival in Richmond, VA. The label artwork, featuring a strong handshake, set the stage for our ongoing friendship and countless collaborations, across a wide breadth of styles.
Revisiting the zero kettle hop additions, "zero IBU" concept FIVE years later, but amplifying the lbs per barrel of Citra, El Dorado, and Simcoe, we've also utilized Cryo and Incognito hop products for maximum hop saturation without added bitterness.
The resulting Double IPA pours a vibrant sunny yellow with a welcoming heavy haze. The aroma is explosive, featuring prominent notes of citrus sorbet, fresh-sliced mango, and juicy white peach at peak ripeness. Simcoe balances the fruit-forward onslaught with welcomed and nuanced notes of fresh pine needles and just a touch of pithy grapefruit. Coating the palate with its plush, medium-bodied mouthfeel, IreallywanttoBU finishes dry, with a well-integrated alcohol presence.
