Tonight I’m having Just Use Your Wings from Phase Three Brewing in Lake Zurich, Illinois. This is listed as a Winter Double IPA and is rock solid! The picture is lighter than it actually looks, it is a wonderful clear dark amber color. The aroma is good as well showcasing the three “C” hops: Chinook, Centennial, and Cascade. The taste is terrific! Nice dark malt flavor balances well with the hops. To my tastebuds, it is not overly hoppy like you might expect in a double, but the more I sip this the more I like it and wish I grabbed more of it! It’s listed at a 7.5% ABV. This was canned 11 days before I’m consuming this so it’s fresh, I picked this up from Beermiscuous and hopefully it’s still available as I would definitely have this again! I rated this a 8.6 and as long as you don’t live near me, you should grab it while you can!
