Bahia orange peel extract, Tahiti vanilla extract, exclusive KSB-09 Lactobacillus blend, HBC-472e and Motueka hop blend were the weapons of choice of this operation! (Source: Loosely translated from the brewery's social network.)
- Beer: Mission Control
- Style: Sour IPA (29A. Fruit Beer - 22A. Double IPA with orange peel)
- ABV: 8.4%
- IBU: 48
- Look: orange color, turbid, with a low white head formation that leaves marks on the glass;
- Aroma: fruity aroma, reminding coconut, is present, along with a lower presence of vanilla-like notes. Fighting for attention, citric fruit notes, reminding orange, are also present;
- Taste: citric, fruity notes are present, reminding of orange, mainly. Coconut-like notes can also be noticed, along with light herbal notes. After that, a low to medium sourness strikes which, along with the medium bitterness, lasts in the aftertaste. Low alcohol notes, as well as vanilla notes, are noticeable.
- Mouthfeel: Medium-high body, medium-high carbonation and a dry and long finish;
- Overall: Really good Sour Double IPA, presenting an elegant mix of sourness and bitterness, with a quirky coconut touch. Very interesting mix.
