Careful with this beast! One too many, and you’ll roll a seven, your fireball will miss, and you’ll end up lost in the Upside down.
That’s not to say this absolutely tasty double IPA wouldn’t be worth it. The latest in Scottsdale Beer Company’s “Monster” line of double IPAs, it clocks in at a respectable 9% ABV (alcohol by volume) and a tongue-tingling IBU (international bitterness units) rating that tops 100. This crisp, citrusy monster warrants a snifter glass — not only due to liquor laws in multiple states, but also to capture the strong aromas from the Columbus, Centennial, and Simcoe hops. A few of these, and you’ll be talking to Christmas lights.
Unfortunately, Scottsdale Beer Company has yet to break into wide distribution. However, if you’re in the Scottsdale, AZ area it’s mandatory to pay these folks a visit and sample a flight with this beer included.
