A Note on This Beer
Once you get your hands on Poetic Pestilence Double Dry-Hopped Double IPA, don’t drink it quietly. Broadcast it on your Facebook live feed. Brag about it on Untappd. Hell, climb a mountain and shout it for every beer geek in the land to hear.
Why? Because the celebrated brewers at Jolly Pumpkin made this 8.4% ABV DIPA an ultra-limited, taproom-only release! Anyone who’s tried a brew from these 5-time GABF award-winners will get serious beer envy, because you’ll be one of the only craft fans outside Michigan to taste this juicy treat.
Poetic Pestilence bursts with notes of honeydew, cotton candy, dank greenery, creamy vanilla, and rose petals from huge additions of 5 different hop varieties. Despite its towering booze and flavor, it finishes crisp and clean on the palate.
Usually focusing on nuanced Sours and Farmhouse Ales, this new foray into hoppy territory proves that the brewery conquers any style they tackle. Inspired by their collaborators and friends at Anchorage and Monkish, Jolly Pumpkin double dry-hops Poetic Pestilence to achieve potent hop flavors with none of the bitterness.
While you’re drinking it and making all your friends jealous, remember only 10 cases of this dangerously crushable DIPA made it to each of Jolly Pumpkin’s taprooms. You’d be out of your gourd to be one of the Sad Pumpkins missing out on the 2nd IPA ever brewed by these American craft legends.
