Striped candy canes adorn the door of Day 4 but there is sure to be something more tasty hidden behind it. What could it be?
Do not adjust your set - it's a Hoptical Illusion, an east coast IPA from Blue Point Brewing in Patchogue, New York. There's no magic involved here though, there really is a beer in my advent calendar and a strong one at that - this is a surprising 7% ABV.
From Blue Point Brewing's website:
What you're seeing is a hop lover's dream.
To brew this award-winning well balanced IPA, we add plenty of hops five different ways. Adding it five ways allows the "Essence of the Hop" to really shine through and give Hoptical Illusion its signature resiny, citrus-burst punch. From aroma to first sip, this beer is sure to be one of your new favourites.
7% ABV in a 330ml bottle
