Notes / Commercial Description:
Introducing from the dark depths of the east bay, Destination Unknown Double IPA: A Cadillac-sized hop bomb that cruises the streets of Berkeley leaving notes of grapefruit oil and honeydew melon in its wake. Pouring this beer on Shattuck, its hazy body looks like the fog rolling off of the bay with a head of hop resin that dissipates just as you hit Durant. As you slide past Sproul Plaza and the smell of patchouli wafts by you find refuge by planting your nose in the glass, and inhaling a ridiculous amount of Mosaic hop-induced notes. Fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice, ripe melon, fruit salad, and copious amounts of pot… …wait, that last one is actually some kids lighting up on Channing. Keep on strolling, taking sips and enjoying the body that is saturated with Mosaic hops and sticking to palate like your feet to the floor of the 79 bus. By the time you hit Ashby you can’t help but wonder how on earth you drank a pint glass out of a paper bag, but it doesn’t matter, the remnants in the glass still boast huge hop aromas, just put your nose in that bag and inhale over and over. Don’t worry, you’ll blend right in. Time for another pint, hang a left on Adeline and see where Destination Unknown takes you.
