BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Fulton Beer
Minnesota, United States | website

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND, PERMANENTLY

Originally brewed as a one-off in celebration of the 300th batch at our original downtown Minneapolis brewery, this West Coast IPA was so well received we had to make it available year-round. It's built on a base of Pilsner malt and heavily hopped with Mosaic, one of our favorite -- and unfortunately nearly impossible to procure -- hop varieties. At 74 IBU and 7% ABV, 300 is pure hop candy.

Off flavours and smell. Strong onion character. Light Colour. Some orange. Overcarbonated. The happy gnome.

This is an excellent beer, though I would note it is an IPA, not a double IPA at 7% ABV. Color is an apricot amber, and the taste is very good, but the best part of this beer is the smell. Huge, tropical Mosaic hops on the nose. If I could bathe in this I would.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Light golden orange color with a 2 finger white head. Plenty of webbed lacing all over the glass. Smell is big on fresh, juicy tropical and citrus notes from the Mosaic hops. Lighter malt and some nice sweet honey to balance it out. Flavor is really hoppy in a tropical and citrus with the lighter Pilsner malts. Rich tangerine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple that finishes bitter. Nice mouthfeel with excellent carbonation that is sticky and juicy. This is a a great IPA when fresh.

Reviewed from bottle. No date that I can see.
Pours a clear gold color with a 2 finger thick white head that doesn't stay around too long.
Aroma is hop heavy. Big hits of orange and other citrus. Fairly tropical as well. Pineapple comes through.
Taste is similar to the nose. More tropical fruits backed up by a fairly mild bitterness Juicy
Medium body for an IPA. Moderate carbonation.
Overall, a smooth, fruity and easy drinking beer.

I read that this beer won a blind tasting of 50+ Minnesota IPAs, so I bought a six pack the first time I saw it on the shelf. A: Orange/gold, average head, good lacing. S: Slight malt, lots of citrus. T: malt is kind of sweet, a little caramally, and just enough flavor to stand up to the hops, which are more bitter than expected--less citrus, more pine. Nice, but something in the aftertaste doesn't sit well on my palate--definately the malt flavors, but I don't know how to describe it. Astringency? Otherwise, these flavors are right up my alley. M: medium body, a little thick at the end and somewhat astringent. O: Pretty good but not as good as I was expecting. C'est la vie, non ? I suspect my expectations were too high.

Pours a clear golden color, with a relatively modest head.

Smells of exotic citrus-laden fruit. There are definitely some bitterness from the hops here, but overall, it's the sweetness which rules. Cool smell.

Taste is similar to the smell. This is more nuanced than a lot of the overly-sweet fruit-infused IPA's out there, yet it's the sweetness which is its defining characteristic. Supporting hops and malts are great, but it is the juicy, sweet and fruity nature of this which sets it apart. Great beer, and really happy to see it on the shelves again.
