A tribute IPA for our dear old keg washer. A piece of brewery equipment that at times caused turmoil and heartache, yet also brought a sense of camaraderie among the brew team. Ominous Octopus is an IPA brewed in the standard Wren House hoppy beer style. Brewed with North American 2-row pale and Pilsner malts, a touch of @weyermann_specialty_malts Carafoam & a heavy hand dosage of flaked oats. Whirlpool hopped modestly with some Amarillo as well as some super high oil content Mandarina Bavaria. The beer was then dry hopped with the same at equal amounts totaling 3.5lb/bbl. This beer is straight up citrus on so many levels. Immediately there is an aroma of bottomless mimosas on a lazy Sunday afternoon, with little hints of tropical fruit cups in the background. The flavor is completely reminiscent of white grapefruit juice.

    Rated Dec. 2018. Pint can pours with a near opaque apricot juice gold body that supports a near white head of foam. The aroma offers up mango, guava, tangerine and grapefruit. The taste delivers a pleasing blend of smooth mango, tangy tangerine and bitter grapefruit. Wow. Nice. It has depth and spunky nimbleness.
