American Double / Imperial IPA |  8.20% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Trip to the brewery today for the Dinner release, bottled yesterday :-)

A - Soft yellow color with a nice head, great sticky lace retention

S - Citrus explosion. Grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange peels, grass, amazing!

T - Follows the nose initially and then you get a pine blast. Unique balance

M - Soft and supple feel, high carbonation, biting with a dry finish

O - A remarkable DIPA. Wonderfully balanced between citrus and malts. The aroma is out of this world. This will appeal to hop heads and fruit forward IPA fans. The world can only hope this will be added to their regular lineup. Bravo!

7/31 bottling, consumed 8/13. Legit. By far the best beer I've had from MBC.
