A Note on This Beer
If you’re an IPA-fiend, then you’ve definitely tried a dry-hopped IPA and more than likely tasted one that’s been double dry-hopped as well.
But today’s 8.2% ABV Invent The Universe Imperial Hazy from Braxton is leaving those brews in the hop dust — it’s a ‘double-double’ of hop juice potency!
A ‘double-double’ means that today’s brew is loaded with twice the amount of hops as an average IPA and that the Brewbound Rising Star award-winners at Braxton gave it not one, but two dry-hopping sessions. Let’s break it down even further so you understand the insane levels of jammy fruit flavors that are spewing out of every can.
Double Hopped: Braxton went big for this one with an 8.2% ABV. To disguise all that booze, they needed to drench it in dank, tropical hop juice. So, they loaded up Invent The Universe with over 6lbs-per-barrel of ruby-red grapefruity Citra, dank Motueka, orange creamsicle-like Lotus, and passionfruit-y Vic Secret Hops — that’s over twice as many hops as the average IPA!
Double Dry-Hopped: Using double the hops wasn’t enough for these mad juicing scientists. The amped-up the fierce fruitiness with not just one late addition dry-hopping, but two! One sip and you’ll agree that when Starburst says “the juice is loose,” they ain’t got nothing on today’s brew.
With this hop-avalanche-in-a-can, you’ll understand why this beer is in such high demand. But you should also know that as a Tavour-insider, you’re the only lucky beer geeks outside of the South to get to try this juicy Kentucky brewski.
Just when you think IPAs can get any juicier, Braxton takes hop extraction to a whole new level. Here’s your chance to be one of the first to try a double-double juicebomb.
*To let Invent the Universe shine at its absolute brightest try serving in a Spiegelau or Teku glass to enhance its powerfully fruity aromas.
