Beer Review 32 // Great Lakes Brewery Octopus Wants to Fight
“Our pet octopus is a bit of a jerk. He’s that guy who has a couple then either tells you how much he loves you or threatens to fight you. So we brewed this IPA, with 8 varieties of hops and 8 types of malt. We targeted 88 IBU and 8.8% to appease him. Sadly, when he found out that we’d fabricated all of the above info, it only made him more volatile. We are starting to realize that Octopus was a poor choice for a pet.”
Taste: Citrus, bitter, punchy, dangerously drinkable. Reminds to of BrewDog Punk IPA, or a fresh Thornbridge Jaipur.
