Forager Moon Hops Double IPA

If you read my "MN Breweries One by One" piece on Forager Brewing back in March, you might have gotten the impression that I had become a fan of this brewery and their beers. You would be correct in that assumption. Because they are so far off in Rochester, it's not likely I am to return to them any time soon, especially since my free time is devoted to collecting experiences from every other brewery out there. So, I have to get by with help from my friends. Thanks so much to Julie and Jay for bringing this crowler to me.

Forager Moon Hops. 8.4 % ABV. Date: 3/28.

Highly clouded, bright golden hue, large and long-lasting snowy white head, leaving lace.

Aromatics are bold, vibrant, citrus-y, piney, fresh and beautiful. Just gorgeous.

In the mouth: all that and more. Burst of citrusy fruit flavors dazzle the palate, a full brace of bitterness, kept in check with substantial malt. Lemon and orange and lime and a twist of tangerine. Mmm, mmm, mmm. Medium body, long, hop-drenched finish. So nice. This is a brilliant masterpiece of a beer, hitting all the right notes, full of power, grace, and deliciousness.

I couldn't find information on this on their website, and on Untappd, I could only catch the hops: Equinox, galaxy and Citra hops. 80 IBUs. 8.4% ABV.
