A Note on This Beer
An 10.9% ABV IPA!?
We don’t need to tell you that double-digit hopbombs are rare. But, there’s a lot more than just the staggering booze level to get excited about in today’s Project First Ascent!
To start, this West Coast-style beast gets a three-way hop treatment with a rarely-seen combo of Talus, Citra, and Simcoe.
The body starts buzzing after a couple sips, but the hops’ zesty mimosa and juicy pineapple flavors keep the brew shockingly drinkable throughout. Resinous pine comes through loud and clear on the finish, leaving the palate primed and ready for another luxurious swig!
First Ascent comes from Denver’s renowned River North Brewery — the folks who practically built the Mile High City’s famed RiNo brewing district! Everyone from Brewbound to Colorado’s own 5280 Magazine praises the “creative muscle” behind their beers.
And, if you’re quick enough today, you’ll get to experience that muscle first-hand with this hopped-up masterpiece. Just be sure to sit down when you take your first boozy sips.
