AK - NE Style DIPA [silent warrior edition]
Adroit Theory Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Hopheads never underestimate Adroit Theory’s power to conceal booziness under a dank and juicy cloak of haze. Today we’ve encountered the smoothest and softest yet from their AK series: Silent Warrior NE-style Imperial IPA. Sleep with one eye open, this pillowy sipper will sneak up on ya with an undetectable 8.2% ABV.
Fans of Adroit’s AKs have to become hop warriors themselves trying to track down these beers: There are only 325 cases of Silent Warrior in existence! Outside of Tavour it doesn’t leave Virginia, it’s pre-sold out, and will never be made again.
Your nose will jolt you awake from a surprise attack of intense tropical aromas. Passionfruit and pineapple with undertones of orchard pears and resiny pine quickly conquer the palate upon first sip. A NE-style mouthfeel delivers soft dankness with only 27 IBUs -- you’ll taste the greenery, but won’t feel the bite in its semi-dry finish.
To sum up this silent but tasty IPA assassin, @Runyetirun on UT says it best: “This is incredibly badass!” Suit-up hop warriors, it’s time to disappear into the haze.
