Speakeasy Ales & Lagers Releases Blood Orange Double Daddy Imperial IPA

Speakeasy Blood-Orange-Double-Daddy-Imperial-IPA-Feature

SAN FRANCISCO – First Speakeasy Ales & Lagers doubled down on hops and malt. Then they put Double Daddy in a can. Now they’re raising the stakes with citrus in a special edition of Double Daddy Imperial IPA made with blood oranges. It will be served for the first time on Saturday, April 23, in the Speakeasy Tap Room, and then be distributed.

Blood Orange Double Daddy Imperial IPA contains a complex dose of citrus flavors. Dry-hopped with Amarillo, Nelson, Simcoe, and Mosaic, the aroma is overflowing with grapefruit, orange, and tangerine notes, followed by apricot, mango, and pine. A late addition of blood orange juice and pulp adds an extra layer of flavor with overtones of strawberries and raspberries. Fresh pale malts deliver a touch of biscuit and marmalade. The beer finished at 8.5% abv with 85 IBUs.

The first batch of Blood Orange Double Daddy Imperial IPA is extremely limited. After being served in the Speakeasy Tap Room, a small amount will be shipped throughout California and then to New York City and Philadelphia. Later this spring a larger amount will be released for wider distribution.
