A Note on This Beer
Full disclosure: I’m a little traumatized from my fifth grade science fair. I still remember walking into the gymnasium with my hand-made papier-mâché volcano, only to see that everyone else had also built (you guessed it) papier-mâché volcanoes.
So much for originality.
Fortunately for the craft beer community, Destination Unknown Brewing Company’s award-winning brews are rife with originality, and they aren’t afraid to push the envelope with their hoppy science experiments!
These talented chemists packed For Science 6.5 with tropical Vic Secret from Australia, exotic Motueka from New Zealand, and pungently aromatic Citra Cryo Hops. That concentrated hop powder allows the oil and resins (the yummy part of the hops) to be added straight to the beer without any bitter, vegetal taste — the result is straight juice, baby!
Destination Unknown stirred up plenty of oats and wheat in the base, so each velvety sip is softer than the cool side of the pillow. A touch of lactose makes it taste as mouthwateringly creamy as a frothy Orange Julius.
In a world full of model volcanoes, these guys were the kids who built the fully-functioning robot. Today, I’m giving up science experiments to revel in their hoptastic mastery!
