A Note on This Beer
“It’s hard to pick a favorite brewery in a city like Dallas that boasts so many good ones, but Celestial Beerworks is usually the first name out of my mouth when making recommendations.” –The Beer Travel Guide
It’s a great day to be a hophead on Tavour. Today, we have TWO boozy New England-style IPAs from Dallas’ premier hop pros at Celestial!
In case that Beer Travel Guide praise wasn’t convincing enough, know that this husband and wife-led brew crew was among the first to brew Hazy IPAs in their region. Now, their NEIPAs showcase 4+ ratings across Untappd!
Kick off your tasting with the “lighter” of the two. I say that tongue-in-cheek because this baby still clocks in at 8% ABV and explodes with pineapple, passionfruit, and mango dankness from “delightful amounts” of Idaho 7 and Vic Secret Hops.
But, what really makes Double Stars Imperial IPA so sip-worthy is its fluffy, velvety body from a trifecta of malted wheat, raw wheat, and flaked wheat. With a mouthfeel this soft, punctuated with a pleasant hop bite, you’ll have to remind yourself to savor slowly.
And, while you might be tempted to dive into the next succulent can right away, just know that Technical Skillset is a Triple New England IPA with an ultra-sneaky 10% ABV!
One sip and it’s clear this fresh-squeezed juicebomb deserves its massive 4.40 UT score. The brewers wove in drippy flavors of passionfruit, mango, and peach rings candy via Strata, Galaxy, and extra-potent Strata Hash Hops. It’s lushly pillowy too, like a can of juice pressed straight from the tree.
Which of these expertly-crafted hopbombs will be your favorite, hophead? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to grab a pair while we’ve got them outside of Texas!
*Isn’t that trippy can art cool? Celestial’s canned releases all come with custom artwork that’s as worth collecting as what’s inside.
