  • Brewery: 2 Row Brewing (Salt Lake City, Utah)
  • Website:
  • Brew: Accelerator IPA
  • Style: American India Pale Ale (IPA)
  • Serving: 12 ounce bottle
  • ABV: 7.0%
  • Pour: Hazy golden-honey amber with a thin, white head that leaves a nice cap and ring with chunky lacing.
  • Nose: The nose is characterized by tropical and citrusy fruitiness, floral, herbal, and piney aromas.  There are notes of peach, mango, lemon, grapefruit, pine, floral soap, herbal tea, and soft caramel. 
  • Taste: Well-balanced, the taste is fruity, grassy, piney, and zesty.  There are notes of lemon,  zest, pine, bitter pink grapefruit juice, hints of mango and peach, orange juice, black tea, and white pepper. 
  • Mouthfeel: Light to medium-bodied and well-carbonated, the mouthfeel is sharp, crisp, dry, and hoppy with a dry, slightly bitter and peppery, but clean finish. 
Overall pairing: The fierce, fiery fast aggression of Death Angel's "Relentless Revolution" demands a brew with not only balls, but bold flavor!  2 Row's Accelerator IPA is that beer my friends!  It is a bold, attention-demanding brew with lots of great flavor and wonderfully refreshing... perfect for the metal goodness that is Death Angel!!    

Hails... Cheers!!
