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.

Not a huge fan of going agressive with 5s but I think this one deserves a spot alongside the greats and is probably my most favorite from mbc. Dinner, mo, lunch another one on the IPA/apa side.
Nice golden straw with abundant offwhite head and a super sticky glass coating lace. Smell of super floral and a bit of hop resin. Taste right on point with the nose big floral hop punch, some pine and grapefruit and a soft malty backbone with a bit of biscuit yeast. Feel exactly what you want with good carb, delicate yet coating

I was fortunate enough to be present for the second release of Dinner at the brewery. I tried it on tap and then purchased 3 cases.

Dinner pours an orange color with a nice foamy head which recedes in a short amount of time. The flavor profile is very similar to MO (not Lunch), but kicked up many notches. It has an almost dank, citrus flavor that comes through with just the right amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel on this one as absolutely perfect, as is the level of carbonation.

The bottle instructs you to drink it immediately after purchase. I will admit I made a mistake buying 3 cases because the quality did diminish after about two weeks.

This is a special beer that is worth seeking out. Cheer!
