Appearance: Orange-brown, cloudy, chunks of yeast, good head.

Smell: Citrus, mild fruity yeast, pepper.

Taste: Sweet, orange citrus. Some fruitiness, a little bit of black pepper, moves to a solidly bitter finish.

Overall: I finally found some bottles of this one in Iowa so I picked up a 4 pack. A good Belgian IPA that the brewery calls a double IPA on the label. The Belgian elements mingle well with the hops so each takes equal footing. Sometimes Belgo yeasts give me some weird flavors but this one seems to work well.

3.9/5  rDev -1.3%

Dark saturated orange, soft haze, lasting collar of lace and skim across the surface.

Hugely resinous aroma of dried mango, citrus peel, dank green hops, and a slight cattiness.

Slick and viscous feel, loaded with oily hop resin, traces of alcohol combine and render the taste nearly medicinal. Bitter citrus peel and green botanical flavors are big, also sweet tangerine and lasting piney resin in the aftertaste, light honeyed malt traces linger too after the bitterness subsides. Full bodied and very bitter, the 9% is apparent, and blends a little better as it warms. Overall a big brash DIPA from Iowa, only a small handful of those in existence.

Thanks for this one Eric!

A big old double IPA from our friends Peacetree Brewing to the east in Knoxville, Iowa. Comes in a four pack.

Pours a really hazy copper color. There's no way you're seeing through this beer. Nice mottled head.

Some overripe mango and bran muffin on the nose.

That tastes good. Long and hoppy on the finish but pleasantly malty in the mid. Easy drinking for a double IPA. Hops are earthy and not overwhelming. One of the top few double IPAs I've tried.
