Boston is known for its complex tangled transportation web. Unbeknownst to many, though, we also have a rarity that exists in only three locations in the world. At a short span on the Charles River is a place where a plane can fly over car that drives over a train that rides over a boat. Inspired by this representation of the vibrancy of our city, we created the most amplified hoppy beer to hit our tanks. Plane over Car over Train over Boat reflects the seamless, stunning poetry of many synchronized parts moving together in a small space to create a greater whole.
A beer that took a year of focused development and tweaking and fine-tuning to bring to life. PoCoToB is our first ever Quadruple IPA. With a bumped up grain bill, we dosed this beer with massive additions of Citra, Mosaic, and Galaxy at our highest hopping rate to date. Pouring a heavily hazy orange color, the nose instantly is greeted with bold aromas of of creamy mango purée, candied lemon, tropical papaya, and underripe pineapple. PoCoToB’s luscious, full mouthfeel accentuates dynamic flavors of juicy apricot, sticky cantaloupe, and pulpy orange smoothies with a touch of guava. PoCoToB has a present yet smooth bite of spruce tips with mouthwatering and clean finish. An extended cold-conditioning period mellows the hoppy bite that often highlights beers of this magnitude, while also further developing the depth of tropical and citrus-like qualities that the intense dry hopping imparted.
