While the Cat’s Away DIPA
Max Lager’s, Atlanta
Available on draft at Max Lager's
While the Cat’s Away is a modern double IPA brewed with pale ale malt, 10% flaked oats, and several hop additions, including South African Southern Passion hops, and “copious amounts” of Simcoe Cryo hops.
The result is an 8% alcohol, slightly hazy double IPA, with a fruity flavor profile, balanced by a toasty malt presence, a full mouthfeel, and an even bitterness in the finish.
Max Lager’s head brewer Anthony Morovich suggests pairing Cat’s Away with the restaurant’s signature smoked wings, or the buttermilk-battered Southern fried chicken plate, which is served with bacon-braised collard greens, fries, and pepper jelly.
