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.

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.

Absolutely amazing. Best double IPA I ever had. We also did a blind taste test with heady and mastermind and stone enjoy by. This one came in first place accross almost all reviewers (6 out of 7 had Dinner first place). This one stands up to the hype.
