Beer added by: MasterSki on 01-12-2012

American Muscle – 666 Horsepower Double Pale Ale is massive hop bomb brewed for America by Americans in America. Aggressively late kettle and dry hopped with four quintessential varietals of American hops; this beer is built like houses used to be. A strong malt backbone balances a rich, pungent palate of citrus fruit with floral and earthy notes. No adjuncts or extracts of any type were used in this beer.

Served in a snifter at Local Option.

There should be a speech bubble in the bird's mouth spouting a gruff "Get some!" Maybe it's just me... Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly hazy sunset amber topped by a half-finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, light leek, orange zest, light honey, and very light caramel. The taste holds notes of orange zest, grapefruit peel, pine resin, light caramel, very light honey, and a touch of booze. The body is a light-ish medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, a generally solid, if a tad unbalanced and boozy, DIPA.
