American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.50% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
This gold colored West Coast style Double India Pale Ale has an intense hop nose, with aromas mainly of citrus. The high hop character dominates this IPA’s flavor profile. Made with American long grain rice, it is quite difficult to make but the rice contributes to this beer’s crisp aftertaste.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4

Poured on tap a full 14 oz. into a Becher glass.

Thin cream puck presented, bleach white in color. The body has very little rising carbonation if at all, and has a very big brass yellow pale lager look to it. Occasional spider like lacing edges the glass.

Clean aroma. Hints of crispness and airy grain. Hop tropical fruit that's fairly pleasant and a bit of weed like aromas. Quite nicely balanced but with a classic light character and smell. This smells like a session IPA.

Palate comes with classic DIPA bursting hop forwards action. Sweet light flavorful hops of tropical fruit, but flashes very quickly on the swallow. Aftertaste has a very light dry quality with hop aromatics lingering on and on, with some lime bitterness that slowly grows. An extremely light bodied palate, much I am sure due to the rice, with a crackly airy quick finish, and easy muted carbonation.

Much of the alcohol on this is hidden and this really comes off like a session IPA in flavor and taste. It makes it really impressive just on that level alone and down right dangerous to drink.

Serving type: on-tap
