Dos Osos by Revolution Brewing
American IPA
6.60 % ABV

Dos Osos, or "two bears," IPA is a collaboration brew with our great friend Dustin Kral who is the lead brewer at Firestone Walker Brewing Co. in Paso Robles, CA. Named after both the bear on the California State flag and the Chicago Bears this IPA is described as a Central Coast IPA, named for California's Central Coast. As with most West Coast IPAs, our version in not bogged down with lots of specialty malts and is dry, crisp and clean which is a trademark of the hoppy ales from both Revolution and Firestone. 2-row, Munich, and a touch of cara-pils lend a subtle malt base to which the layers of hop character are built upon. An array of hops including Warrior, Chinook, Centennial, Cascade and Citra infuse this ale with aromas and flavors of fresh flowers, citrus and passion fruit. The finished product is a clean refreshing IPA with a crisp bitterness and wonderful hop bouquet.

(Served in a bow-tie)

A- This beer pours a clear apricot colored body with a thick creamy light butter cream head with a gentle carbonation supporting it.

S- The bright unripe citrus hops is full followed by a cereal and pale malt aroma that turns into a corn tortilla smell as it opens.

T- Th e full jammy unripe fruit hops have a green pith quality of ugly fruit and lime character. There is a nice touch of sweetness in the finish. The aftertaste is a pleasant green hop note that doesn't have any bitterness or pungency but is soon gone.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz with no alcohol heat noticed.

O- This is a great sessionable hoppy beer. The taste of hops have are really big with some nice depth and no bitterness. Very easy to drink in the summer heat.
