American Double / Imperial IPA |  8.50% ABV

Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
It starts to take over. That craving for hops. The hoppier the happier. The happier the higher the IBU. The higher the IBU the larger the ABV. The higher the ABV the more we’re going to have to keep an eye on this Rampant Imperial IPA proliferating with heavy peach tones, herbal sweetness, and aromatic complexity.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours out a brass color, with an almost still-looking body and a thin head. Hops are strong in the nose: very earthy and herbal. Smell some caramel malts as well. Flavor is obviously hop-forwarded. Hops, as in the nose, are earthy and herbal, with the NB house taste complimenting the hop character well. Malts taste of caramel and toasted bread. Mouthfeel isn't too thick. Carbonation helps to scrub up the sweetness and bitterness. Overall, this is a solid DIPA that is outside of what I normally look for in one.
