Our first Double IPA – dry, refreshing and hoppy. We really focused on hop flavor and aroma here. To maximize hop character, we dry hopped Dinner twice with over 6 lbs. of hops per barrel. For the best experience, please enjoy fresh as possible.

I had just put the finishing touches in a 32 oz sucks when my pal called and asked if I wanted some Dinner. Point being my pallet was not clean which I normally require when rating a brew. That said, overall it's a Maine dipa. Fucking high end shit. Effortless enjoyment.

Many thanks to Steve for providing the bottle!

Has a glowing orange color, with a soon collapsing, bubbly head.

Got an intense, fruity nose, with lots of juicy oranges, among herbs and glazed malts. The orange yields a glue like aspect, as well as prickly kiwi notes, with a resinous impact, blending well into the sweeter smells.

Taste is more herbaceous than the nose revealed, with a gentle influence of fresh cut grass, balanced by pine and wooden, slightly biscuity malts. On top of that settles the orange fruitiness, with lots of white peel being noteable, while an enjoyable hop bitterness becomes visible, getting easily balanced by the earthy malts and a lower, well fitting carbonation, which provides a very smooth mouthfeel. The present malt backbone gets joined by a slick, semi dry kiwi punch, among chunks of grapefruit during the finish, pulling the beer into a hoppier direction. Amazingly balanced, easy drinkable double IPA, with an ever evolving, gentle hop character.
