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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance is a hazy orange with a half finger of white head.
Aroma is strong tropical fruits. Mango, peach, pineapple. Sticky smell. Slight onion.
Taste is not as potent as the nose but its clear this is a big boy beer.
Sticky resin taste. Lots of bitterness and tropical fruit.
Mouthfeel is thinner than I'd like for these flavors but its a medium feel.
Not dry or overly thin, just not full enough to stand up to the monster flavors.
Did this side by side with lunch and liked lunch more BUT I can see why people love this beer. Is IN YOUR FACE aroma and flavor. Just a little too much for me.
