Captain Lawrence Orbital Tilt IPA
Captain Lawrence Brewing recently entered the Miami market. They are based out of Elmsford, NY, just north of New York City. I always felt cheated that they opened right after I left town for Miami too!
I have had the opportunity to try some of their beers before this new distribution thanks to co-workers bringing home from business trips and vacations in Ocean City, NJ (shout out to Circle Liquor across the bridge!). But now at least their staple beers are here.
Funny part is, the beer I'm writing about today, Orbital Tilt IPA, I didn't see at the local liquor store so I don't know if it's in the current distribution lineup (at least yet). I had the chance to try this beer at a Jameson Whiskey festival of all places! And one of the people let me take this can home for this review. 5.9% alcohol. Check out the story below to set your expectations.
Fruity orange and piney aroma with some dank hoppy goodness. Great flavor! Pine, juicy, fruity orange and hints of pineapple to start. Excellent hoppy bitterness with some dank green hops showing through. Spicy, peppery, has a lot going on in harmony. Delicious!
