The Fort Point Channel Harborwalk offers some of the best views of Downtown Boston and the Old Northern Avenue Bridge. An ode to this iconic path, portraying its distinctive and resolute nautical bollards and chains on its label, Double Pier is an Imperial Wheat Ale brewed to celebrate summer evening strolls along our of our favorite spots in the Fort Point neighborhood.
Bumping up the base recipe of the original iteration of Pier and drawing inspiration from the experiences brewing other Imperial IPAs with higher wheat proportions in the malt bill like Deciduous 2017 and Permutation #61, we whirlpooled Double Pier with Citra before massively double dry hopping with Citra and Galaxy. Pouring a hazy and vibrant golden orange color with a fluffy white head, Double Pier has lifts captivating aromatics of fresh lemon wedges, orange blossom honey, ripe melon, and floral hops. Taking a sip, the palate is greeted with bright flavors of pink grapefruit, clementine and white peach with accents of tropical lychee and mango. Balanced by a touch creamy wheat and a delicate grassy bite, Double Pier has a pillowy soft mouthfeel and refreshingly smooth finish.
