A Note on This Beer
When the juicy hop mad scientists at Chicago’s Illuminated Brewing felt warmth in the air, they started thinking of summertime drinks. Margaritas? Meh. Lemonade? Not lemony enough! Even though their unique hazy swagger is only found in the Windy City, we got a supa fresh batch of their newest citrus-filled juice bomb before anyone else -- here to quench your summer thirst.
If you’re wondering how the Illuminated brewers capture the essence of summer in today’s 8% ABV Double Dry Hopped Doctor’s Orders Double IPA, let’s take a look at the charts:
- They load Doctor’s Orders up with an absurd 10 pounds per barrel (nearly double the typical amount found in DIPAs!) of super refreshing Idaho 7, Lemondrop, El Dorado, and Mosaic Hops, racking up extreme levels of palate-poppin’ citrus and tropical fruit.
- They double dry hop it to deliver leagues of Meyer lemon, candied grapefruit, and apricot flavors -- without using any actual fruit!
- They use Honey Malts to give it a kick of sweetness.
- They let their ultra juicy yeast strain do its thing, bolstering the citrus-packed hops while delivering a crisp, dry finish that’ll make you wish you had a cabinet full of this sun-kissed nectar.
The distinctly summery flavors of this DIPA mean it’s set to join the ranks of Tavour favorite IPAs from Illuminated -- the last 4 earned an average score of 4.10! Be the first to usher in the dog days of haze, because Doctor’s Orders is making its juicy debut right here! Summer is here, so… uh… can I get an Illuminated prescription?
