Uppercuts and Laser Tag – IPA
Uppercuts and Laser Tag
India Pale Ale – 7.5% ABV
4PK – 16oz Cans
When one of your brewers has a lauded history of Uppercuts and Lasertag, you name an IPA after it. First rule, though…we can’t talk about it.
We let the production team run with this one, and they really knocked it out of the park. “Uppercuts and Laser Tag” started with our newly minted water and fermentation profiles, but switched things up a little on the hot and cold side in terms of hops and mash profile. We’ve been making minor tweaks and seeing a lot of growth in the IPA department here, but this beer…it slaps.
Starting with a base of Riverbend Malt 2-Row, hefty doses of Wheat and Spelt, just a touch of Dextrin malt for body, and then open-hand slapped with Vic Secret in the Whirlpool. The crew then decided to unleash a flurry of punches in the dry-hop with Vic Secret, Citra, and Enigma for a tropical citrus-bomb in a neat little 7.0% ABV package. It’s like getting into a street fight with a tropical fruit salad in a room full of lasers and smoke: passionfruit, papaya, pineapple, clementine, thick and chewy dab-rips, and an overwhelming sense of excitement.
