I have two fat orange cats, so when I saw that this beer hit Jersey, I needed to buy it.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Fat Orange Cat Brew Co. is a small, seasonal farm brewery, opened for tastings and growler sales/fills August 13, 2016 out of our barn. We specialize in extremely high quality small batch recipes, and are making every effort to support and promote local agriculture. We are very fortunate that our property has a wetland and is in the Salmon River watershed area, resulting in exceptionally high quality well water. Many thanks to the UCONN Agricultural Extension for developing our waste nutrient management plan, enabling us to use all of our waste materials either on the property or for goat feed. Most importantly, we love brewing beer and always focus on creating delicious and varied brews!”
Random: Male orange tabbies get very large.
The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a bright yellow color with some cloudiness with lots of carbonation visible. The nose started with some malt and caramel along with lots of hops. There was some pine and grapefruit that I picked up. The taste was definitely hop forward. It had some pine along with grapefruit pith and then some caramel malt. Mango, pineapple and some booze came through next. The body was heavy with a lot of carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with tropical fruit. I liked this beer a lot. The flavor was on point and the branding was awesome. This is definitely worth a try.
