Many more people have tried Marshall Wharf beer since they started canning Can’t Dog but some people may not realize Marshall Wharf has at least 40 different beers in their line up. Many are seasonal or only available occasionally throughout the year but there are many great options here. They also have a knack for brewing high ABV beer that pack a big punch.
Big Twitch is their slightly lower ABV IPA clocking in at only 9% ABV verses Can’t Dog’s 10%. While they are both big IPAs this is an entirely different beer. Pours a deep hazy orange with a perfect white head. Aroma is a nice mix of sweet malts and pine / fruity hops.
Taste has plenty of malt character, a fair amount of bitterness from the hops and plenty of alcohol taste. The alcohol softens a bit as it warms but is still present. Another very nice IPA from Marshall Wharf, if all you have tried it Can’t Dog take a trip to Belfast and grab a growler of something. I am certain you will enjoy.
Alcohol Content: 9.0% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??

Brewers Description: Our 2nd place IPA. Only the Cant Dog is stonger, although arguments abound as to who is hoppier. A session IPA? NO! But you can try if you want. One of our personal favorites around the bar.
