This New England-style IPA presents a super hazy golden color capped by a vigorous head of rocky foam. On the nose, look for citrus juice and rind conjuring grapefruit, orange, and lime, with secondary notes of melon and passion fruit. On the palate, this hazy IPA comes through super juicy with orange notes backed by a lime impression, some stone fruit, a touch of honeydew, and a light jasmine-like floral tone. The malts come through with a bready, crackery impression, and there’s a robust, round, and creamy feel to this hazy brew thanks to plenty of flaked oats and torrified wheat. As we expect for NE-style IPAs, hop bitterness is only moderate, allowing the hop profile to focus on those juicy fruit elements without crushing the palate under a bitter grip. For pairing options, we’re thinking Hawaiian pizza, teriyaki chicken breast with grilled pineapple, orange peel beef, or a snack of blue cheese. Cheers!
DuClaw Brewing Company was founded as a brewpub in 1996 by Dave Benfield, an accomplished home brewer. He got his start as a brewer in college, where having the ability to create alcoholic beverages can often pay considerable social dividends. But his interest in brewing continued beyond his college years and developed into a bit of an obsession. He took a position within his family’s business after graduating, but his passion for home brewing continued, eventually leading to his decision to start a brewpub.
When DuClaw opened its doors to the public in Bel Air, MD in 1996, the concept of a restaurant which serves its own microbrews crafted on a small in-house brewing system was, while not unique, still a very fresh and exciting business model. Within a year the local paper highlighted DuClaw as “Bel Air’s hippest establishment.” Over the succeeding years, Dave expanded the business, leading DuClaw to grow from a simple brewpub operation into a full package brewery. After outgrowing their original brewing location as well as a second location, DuClaw moved into a new brewing facility in Rosedale on Baltimore’s outskirts in 2013. Featuring over 60,000 sq. ft. of space, plus a custom-made and imported high-tech German brewing system, the brewery is well-positioned to grow into the future.
