A Note on This Beer
Wildcard Brewing Co.’s Double Down Imperial Red comes with a warning straight from the brewers: “This beer is not for the timid.” Take our word for it, they’re not kidding.
Crashing palates with a surge of bitter pine resin, rich caramel malts, and a fiery spark of booze, Double Down is Wildcard’s biggest seller, fueling their success as one of California’s new breweries on the rise.
Once you get a taste of its bold-on-bold-on-bold intensity, be ready to join in on the madness. Piney hops immerse you so deep into a forest of evergreen aromas, you can almost feel the sting of the needles. Inhale deeper and feel your nostrils flare up from the spicy warmth of alcohol. The first sip greets you with a smack of hop bitterness that’s almost straight from a grapefruit peel, then flows into smooth and sweet biscuity body. A bitter wave then returns, lingering at the finish.
We heard a lot of buzz surrounding Wildcard on our recent trip to North California, and everyone in the taproom told us “if you’re gonna try one beer, you gotta have the Double Down.” A beer with such a devout following beckons to be enjoyed, explored, and discussed, and we couldn’t wait to bring it to you.
