Tone Def Double IPA with Blood Orange – Twin Sails Brewing (Boombox Brewing)

From Twin Sails Brewing in Port Moody in collaboration with Vancouver’s Boombox Brewing comes their “Tone Def Double IPA with Blood Orange”.  The beer pours  an exceptionally cloudy orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of blood orange, tropical fruits, citrus, tangerine, sweetness and floral hops.  The flavour is of blood orange, tangerine, tropical fruits, citrus, mild citrus rind, bready malts, bitterness and alcohol.  The alcohol content comes in at 8% with an IBU of 60.  This might be my favourite of the new beers from Twin Sails Brewing.  This stuff is epic!

Commercial Description:  Tone Def Double IPA is a collaboration with our friends at Boombox Brewing. This NE style DIPA has an addition of 500lbs of blood orange purée and 2L of fresh blood orange zest on top of an already massive amount of hops. We added two huge dry hop additions of Citra, Amarillo and Azacca hops which amplified the citrus juiciness of the aroma and flavour. This beer is nothing short of getting hit in the face with an orange.
