A Note on This Beer
Ingredients: Massive amounts of Mosaic, Cashmere, Citra, and ultra-potent Citra Cry-Hops. Aroma: Look for lots of citrus — from mandarin to grapefruit to zesty lime, along with hints of blueberry and pineapple. Flavor: Like a crazy tropical-citrus smoothie with plenty of mango and a handful of fresh berries!
Today we’ve got a true ‘beer baby’ to share with ya.
What’s a beer baby? I’m glad you asked! A beer baby is what happens when two adult beers who love each other very much go see “Titanic,” then have a couple of drinks, and a few laughs. One thing leads to another, and that’s that.
This is how we ended up with today’s Imperial IPA from two of New York’s finest breweries: LIC Beer Project and KCBC!
To make this delicious beer baby, the brewers at KCBC — named Best Brewery in NY by Thrillist — took their 4.20 UT-rated ‘This is Your Brain on Hops IPA’, and set it up on a blind date. But of course, not just any brew can go out with a juicebomb this good-looking. They had to find a seriously hoppy hottie.
Luckily, the 4.35 UT-rated ‘Pile of Crowns IPA’ from LIC was single and ready to mingle!
After the two brews hit it off (and I’m just speculating here), the award-winning breweries threw on a little Al Green, and left them to ‘chat’ in a motel room for a few hours with a pile of Mosaic, Cashmere, Citra, and Citra Cryo-Hops.
And a short time later, Pile of Brains Imperial IPA was born!
If you’re looking to sample this ‘beer baby’ from two of the most celebrated breweries in New York, you better grab a few cans before the limited edition collab disappears forever!
Fill your fridge with Pile of Brains, and when your buddies ask where it’s from, you can tell them the whole romantic story. There won’t be a dry eye in the house!
