South Street Brewery, Acoustic Kitty – 6 packs
The thing that separates South Street’s Acoustic Kitty from other Double IPAs is its malt bill. Dark copper, Maris Otter Pale, Vienna, Caramel Munich, and Special W malts are joined with flaked oats to make a Double Oat IPA. You heard us, a Double Oat IPA. Don’t worry. There are plenty of Simcoe, Mouteka, Citra, and Cascade hops that are Virginia grown. Be prepared for solid citrus bitterness on top of a complex malt profile with caramel, biscuity, and oaty notes. This brew is more like Nirvanna or Clapton Unplugged, than Korn.
