“Such a blunder sometimes, it makes me wonder why I even bring the Thunder (Why he even brings the Thunder)…”
Daveed Diggs, as Thomas Jefferson, paying homage to Grandmaster Flash, in the hit Broadway smash musical Hamilton, invokes the essence of this beer…
Pow! Bam! Zap! Zing! Kings County Brewers Collective (KCBC) Tiger Thunder IIPA!
The smell is super dank, earthy, herbal with some citrus notes hiding behind. The first sip lowers the electric BOOM! A blast of pineapple 🍍 (ooh Mama!) , lemon 🍋 (hey now!), juicy melon 🍈 (watch out!), with bursts of strawberry 🍓 (hello!), bready 🍞 malt sweetness (sweet!) and sticky, oily resinous character (sticky!). This beer is all about balance. It clocks in at 8% ABV, so it’s a nice sipping beer while relaxing on our beautiful, comfy couch.
It pours a beautiful amber, with a pillowy, off-white foam. It’s gorgeous to look at in between sips.
The can art is dope. The bright, almost neon yellows, greens, blues, and reds in the folk-art inspired tiger mask are a nice compliment to the crisp, citrus hops in the beer. It seems like a lot of care and consideration went into not only the beer itself, but also the art. It’s amazing.
Beautifully balanced from start to finish, this beer’s great and you should definitely pick it up if you find it (aka those who live in the tri-state area).
Also, I can’t wait to open the other KCBC can that Rick picked up for me, Look Ma, No Hands, a gose with pineapple and lemon zest, to share with the lovely Holly Kay! Look on our Instagram soon for that beautiful can art as well!
