This is the Hoppiest beer I’ve ever had. Even hoppier than Mikkeller’s 1000 IBU. Plus Palate Wrecker has the most wonderful hop aroma I’ve ever smelled in a beer. This is a mega awesome hopacoaster of a beer.
Here’s some notes from green flash on the process.
“Chuck came up with a new method to make a Double IPA by performing a double brew to make a single beer. First there is a single infusion mash and subsequent boil at 65 IBU with Columbus and Centennial hops. Then a second duplicate mash using the 65 IBU wort instead of water and a second 65 IBU boil using the same hop schedule. The result is a higher gravity beer with kettle caramelizing in place of crystal malts and an elevated hop flavor and bitterness that might not be achieved with the same amount of ingredients in a single brew. Hop Heads, this beer is for you! ABV: 9.2%.”
