Double Mountain Brewery and Gigantic Brewing join forces on a new collaboration beer, Wondertwins IPA. Brewed in Hood River, Oregon, this new IPA is the latest seasonal beer from Double Mountain.
Wondertwins IPA brings together an old standby hop, Comet, along with Citra hops that’s fermented with a Kviek yeast strain. Upon the first pour, a hefty fluffy head appears with plenty of citrus aromas. These aromas carry over into the flavor of the beer that brings forth a bit of grapefruit that finished a bit dry on the backend. Wondertwins IPA sits at 6.5% ABV and 65 BU and is available in 500mL bottles.
The fun label artwork for Wondertwins IPA is a creative take on the classic Hanna Barbera cartoon, the Wonder Twins. It appears that Ben Love and Matt Swihart are playing the parts of Zan and Jayna. You can guess who is which and Van Havig is playing the part of their monkey sidekick Gleek.
“I think when you get a chance to be a superhero with Van and Ben at Gigantic, you go for it!, what could possibly go wrong?,” said Matt Swihart, Double Mountain Brewery Owner and Brewmaster, in a statement.
