A Note on This Beer
Like Charlemagne or Tutankhamen, today’s King Fallen Flag truly does rule. Just check out this regal resume:
Royal Ratings: This IPA kneels for no one! With a massive 4.42 rating, it’s one of the Top 15 Imperial New England IPAs in the World on Untappd! Fans on BeerAdvocate have also crowned this juicebomb as one of the best — it owns a 95/100 World Class score.
Heroic Hops: The brewers at Narrow Gauge used enough Citra and Mosaic Hops to fill a castle’s courtyard. So, if you’re lucky enough to lay siege to this palace, you’d better be prepared for...
Formidable Flavors: Crack the can, and it smells like a juicy blend of every citrus fruit from the finest royal orchard — ruby red grapefruit, blood orange, lemon zest, and tangy tangerine. On the sip, you’ll discover ripe peach, drippy mango, and a solid pop of piney resin on the finish. And, it’s all wrapped up in a body that’s softer than a flowing, velvet cape.
The crew at Narrow Gauge are certainly Hazy royalty in our book, and next year, they’ll be moving from their tiny basement location to more palatial digs. Which means, they’ll more than double capacity!
Until then, these brews are only available to a fortunate few — scoring a sip without heading to Missouri practically makes you IPA royalty. If you snag a can, your easy chair will feel more and more throne-like with every juicy sip.
Narrow Gauge was voted Best New England IPA Brewer by readers of The Full Pint!
