Atlanta based metal band Mastodon has a second signature beer coming next month.
Their first offering hit shelves in Spring of 2012, brewed by Mahr’s Brau dubbed “Mastodon.” Release #1 wasn’t exactly as metal as you’d think; just a simple lager.
Enter #2 – Black Tongue Double Black IPA. This edition is a big imperial black IPA meant to be a palate crusher. Signature Brew describes this beer:
“Rumbling smoky notes are offset by the elixir of misbehaving punchy hops. Mosaic and Magnum hops to the front, with Carafa Special 3 Malt and Pale on the baseline. A beer for enjoying slowly, letting the bombardment of flavour and intensity hit your tongue and explode with every sip.”
Despite the band having Atlanta, Georgia origins, this IPA is not slated for United States distribution. You can order it through the brewery’s website.
