Keeping with the ‘expand your vocabulary’ theme today and enjoying Sartorial Absence from @wilmingtonbrewworks right here in Wilmington, Delaware. This one is a very distinctive imperial Northeast IPA. As they put it, “An experiment of an IPA – we took a recipe for a west coast IPA, using old school hops like Citra, Simcoe, Cascade, and Amarillo, then spiked it with a Sultana Hops. Brewed with Honey and more amber than our typical hazy IPA, it has a distinct citrus nose and a crisp finish without losing that juicy quality. “
So what does the name mean? Sartorial definition is “relating to tailoring, clothes, or style of dress”. Therefore, sartorial absence would be the lack of clothes. So if you have a few of these at 9.2%, it’s a reminder not to be too proud – to look down and make sure you’ve got your clothes on! I had a great idea for the photo… but then thought better of it!
