Notes/Commercial Description:
Beyond the Gates Double IPA is for those of you who have been enjoying Seven Gates Pale Ale, and are ready for that next step. It's brewed with a generous dose of Citra and Simcoe hops that mingle with the sweetness of Belgian caramel malts to yield a full-bodied ale. This assertive ale balances a rich malt flavor with a pronounced hop character. Beyond the Gates is finished with a generous dry-hopping of Citra hops resulting in a very aromatic and flavorful DIPA.

Stopped by the brewery to try the Kerplunk and noticed they released this new DIPA, so I got a growler to take home.

A - Pours almost 3 fingers of fluffy, off-white head. It has an excellent retention and leaves plenty of lacing on the sides of the glass. The beer is a murky dark orange color.

S - A well balanced aroma, there's definitely some earthy hops, but there's also some citrus and bready malts apparent. No one thing overpowers the other.

M - A medium-bodied beer with moderate carbonation. It has a creaminess to it, but also a slickness from the hops oil. It's heavy on hops, but not quite enough to destroy your palate.

T - A mixture of caramel and bready malts hit first. Next up are some citrusy hops followed by the earthy hops that finish the beer. It leaves a nice grapefruit bitterness on completion.

A pretty decent DIPA. It's well balanced and remains pretty drinkable. It's nothing out of this world, but is defiantly a good example of the style. This is my 3rd beer from Spring House and I really like what they are producing. Should be interesting to see what else they come out with in the future.
