When Destination Unknown Beer Company released today’s 11% ABV Abuse of Science Triple IPA, fans hammered their Instagram with two words: Any left?
That’s all people posted, over and over. Any left? Any left? Any left?
Well spoiler alert! There isn’t any left at the brewery! The only place to get this intensely hoppy yet seriously smooth brew is right here.
Brewed with an over-the-top 5 lbs per barrel of Galaxy, Citra, and Mosaic Hops --including a healthy dose of ultra-potent Lupulin Powder -- this is one IPA that’s truly cranked up to 11! When we spoke to brewery owner Brad Finn about Abuse of Science, the first words out of his mouth were ‘Whoa! Be careful with that one!”
We understand why. Even with its cavalcade of juicy and resinous hop flavors and massive ABV, this bold brew is shockingly crushable. Its thick mouthfeel is tempered by tropical citrus and mango notes blended with sweeping flavors of pine. It’d be way too easy to suck down a couple pints of this juicy nectar with no regard for its well-disguised booze.
Then you’d have one of those moments where you stand up too fast and suddenly you’re all fuzzy headed.
Abuse of Science is a Frankensteinian combination of Destination Unknown’s high ABV Abuse series and their lupulin-powered Science IPA series. Any Imperial IPA lover would be silly to let this small batch hopbomb pass them by. Hesitate, and you’ll be the one asking: ‘Any left? Any left?’
And the answer will be ‘no.’
