Description 

Normally, you wouldn't want to swim in the same waters as the piranha. Even though their man-eating capabilities may be a bit overblown, you'd be forgiven for not wanting to dip your hands in a tank full of them.
But we digress. What you're really here for is the beer. Piranha Dealer sounds shady, but it's really a brilliant batch of sunshine. Our milkshake IPA base is made with rolled oats, torrified wheat, acidulated malt and a touch of honey and lactose for sweetness and balance. Simcoe, Citra, Ekuanot and Mosiac hops round out the mix. But we don't stop there! Nope, we took a boatload of strawberries and vanilla beans and made this a true treat.

Piranha Dealer by Monday Night Brewing is a New England IPA with fruit and spices and is being judged as a Fruit and Spice Beer (category 29B in the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines). New England IPAs are known for their juicy/tropical fruit/citrusy hop forward character, hazy appearance, and lighter than typical American IPA bitterness. Fruit and Spice Beers should have an even harmony between the fruit, spices, and the base beer style. This beer adds strawberries and vanilla beans to the New England IPA base style that sports Simcoe, Citra, Ekuanot and Mosaic hops.

This beer pours dark golden in color, very hazy, with a small white head. The aroma is prominently hop driven with aromas of mangoes and peaches; the strawberry and vanilla are hidden behind the hops. The flavor is prominently hops with tropical fruit and mangos. The beer finishes lightly bitter with an abundance of tropical fruit flavors. This is an excellent New England IPA but the strawberries and vanilla are a bit subtle. Enjoy this specialty IPA for the hops!
