This Thursday, like every first Thursday in August since 2011, is National IPA Day. It’s a day meant for celebrating the beer that launched the modern craft beer revolution and for celebrating the brewers that reintroduced the world to the glorious IPA. Every year, in celebration of National IPA Day, Valiant Brewing Company releases the Quadruple IPA, Alpha Overdrive. The release is super limited (~500 bottles) and it is available only once a year.
With both balance and boldness, Alpha Overdrive is a sensory domination. The monster Quadruple IPA (14.3% abv) hints at delight with a golden sheen flickering in the hands. Yet instead of being tame and timid, Alpha Overdrive bursts with citrus, mango, lemon and a bit of strawberry while notes of mild toffee and caramel round out the aroma. The bold, complex malty and caramel sweetness quickly fade allowing the sticky resin flavor to embrace the palate. The hop bitterness is strong with a dry finish.
To complete the celebration in their taproom, Valiant also will be pouring IPA flights with goodies like their Nectarine IPA and Alpha Colada, along with fresh bottles of Alpha Drive and Citcoe Drive. 22 oz. bottles of Alpha Overdrive are $8.99 each and will be limited to 4 per person.
