American Double / Imperial IPA |  8.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Originally brewed as the 100th beer at our brewpub, this strong pale ale packs a serious punch with massive hop flavor. Intense dry-hopping brings a deep, resinous, citrus blast reminiscent of cutting into a fresh bag of hop pellets.

Big thanks to Drucifer for this bottle off my wants, dropped on me at an in-person trade at Darkness Day. If I hadn't been so drunk, I'd probably remember doing the trade. What was is, 8PM? Whatever. I think I've finally recovered. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

The big reveal is orange. With moderate carbonation. Looks like like a beer with hops. Nose dials up the interest level, with quarter-tons of tropical fruit...is the papaya? Lots of malts sweetness. Certainly distinctive.

Double Fist doesn't quite deliver the tittering thrills the name promises. Caramel malt sweetness sweeps outwards from the point of contact with only a moderate level of hop bitterness. That strange, attractive fruit stranger rises again in middle of the beer. Toffee, mango, slight spiciness show themselves briefly. Malt reasserts itself on the end. Pretty heavy for the ABV. A half bomber is plenty.

Intriguing, but ultimately too heavy on the malt to really shine. Good beer.
