A Note on This Beer
Round up the trumpet orchestra and roll out the red carpet. It’s time to welcome royalty to the Hazy throne: the 4.23 UT-rated King of the Thing DIPA!
This citrus-blasted hopbomb hails from the North Dakota juice lords at Drekker. With Thrillist, Forbes, and the Brewing Industry Guide decreeing their haze skills as some of the best in the Midwest, this crew is a total authority on juicy brews.
King of the Thing is proof of their right to rule. They brewed it with a “mountain of oats and spelt” for a mouthfeel that’s softer and more luxuriant than King Louis’ mink mantle.
With a purely Citra Hop lineage, this king rules with a delightfully fruity fist! This liquid magnificence shines with notes of lychee, candied lemon, and peach bellini, while aromas of freshly-peeled oranges and ripe pineapple rise from the golden pour.
When a brew this majestic is at your side, don’t be surprised if you start echoing the Midwestern craft fans who are swearing loyalty to the King:
- “Hot Take Alert! I think this is the best DIPA in the country.” @Garth I.
- “Thick, juicy, tropical, danky DIPA that shows why these brewers are considered the ‘King of The [IPA] Thing’.” @J. E.
- “Hail to the king, baby.” @Dan P.
