A Note on This Beer
Long Island’s most buzzworthy phantom brewery, Nightmare, is crafting brews straight out of our wildest...well...nightmares.
With a taste for great beer and the darker side of life, Nightmare stormed onto the craft scene with an earthshaking 4.18 Untappd brewery rating — that’s higher than Holy Mountain, Toppling Goliath, and fellow metalheads Adroit Theory!
And today’s Mancuerda Double IPA shows just what these fellas are all about: devilishly boozy brews that pack massive flavor!
With a mind-blowing 4.19 rating on Untappd, Mancuerda enraptured the palates of lucky fans with its bold hop flavors and thick, sticky mouthfeel. Bring this monster of a DIPA to your next party, and see which of your friends are brave enough to give it a taste!
It’s so loaded with flavor, one UT user even had an ingenious guess about how they made it: “Wrap a hop vine around a pine tree and wring it out. Hop resin juice!”
It’s a pretty good guess, but the brewers actually double dry-hopped Mancuerda with heaps of Galaxy, Comet, and seldom-seen Polaris Hops straight out of Germany! This lineup of rare, hard-to-find hop varieties makes every sip explode with potent flavors that will leave you in a hop-induced stupor.
Zesty citrus and pungent pine aromas swell from the thick, cloudy pour. The first sip sticks on the palate in a wave of grapefruit pith, tropical passionfruit, and grassy dankness. Herbal, minty notes from the generous addition of Polaris linger on the finish, masterfully masking the boozy bite of the 10.2% ABV.
Nightmare’s fantastical brews rarely cross New York state lines, and if they do, they’re quickly snatched up by thirsty hopheads waiting to get a taste. The last time we had Mancuerda, it sold out in under a day!
You don’t want to sleep on this top-rated DIPA — missing out on its brilliant flavors would be an actual nightmare! So grab your cans now, and be one of the first to taste what New York’s newest craft fiends are all about.
