Twin Sails Hot Take

I am normally down for weird and creative beers but Twin Sails Hot Take has crossed a line with me. The premise is it’s super hoppy but has zero IBUs (this apparently is not quite accurate it does have some). Done by using late-addition hopping/dry hopping to impart the aroma and flavour but not the bitterness. It smells amazing; fresh, juicy, hints of tropical and a little bit dank. A sip reveals some bright fruity characteristics then… Nothing. It’s just gone. Maybe a teeny tiny little touch of hops on the finish but pretty miniscule at any rate. If anything, Twin Sails has proven what benefit bitterness gives to a beer. I’m finishing up with their Slam Dank just to get some taste back in my mouth!

    That was the whole point though. It was supposed to be all the juicyness and none of the bitterness lol.
