Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed and dry-hopped with 3 pounds per barrel of Amarillo!!! Dry in the beginning, with a nice malt middle and a huge hop finish, this big I.P.A. brings notes of bright fruit and citrus. Miiiiiiiiister Crowley!!! What went wrong in your head? Oh, Mr. Crowley, did you talk with the dead???

On-tap at Haymarket. Served in a 4oz taster glass. This is the second batch, and not a keg from February.

A - Generous white foam that has excellent retention and eventually settles to a thick chunky cap, leaving behind glass-coating lace. Transparent dark bronze body.

S - Generous amounts of pithy citrus, with heavy doses of grapefruit and lemon. There's a nice onion and chive flavor, as well as some mild herb and pine flavors. Malt character is quite understated.

T - The taste is also heavy on lemon and grapefruit, with pine and herbal bitterness presenting in the finish. Again, very low malt presence, and shockingly well-hidden 8% ABV. I wish I could give this a 4.25, but it doesn't quite have the pop of the aroma.

M - Medium body, pleasant moderate-to-low carbonation, dry texture, some hop oils and resins in the finish, and no obvious alcohol. Drinks more like an IPA+ than like a DIPA.

D - This was great - I crushed my 4oz pour and ordered a 12oz serving later in the evening. There's a very West Coast vibe here with the lower ABV, dryness, and minimal malt character. This doesn't taste anything like the reviews I saw on Ratebeer for the February batch - I wonder if Pete tweaked the recipe based on their feedback?

Served in a chalice at the brewpub.

Bachelor Party-Palooza 2013 hits its penultimate shot at Haymarket with an Amarillo-loaded DIPA. I'm game. It pours a clear brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest (both yellow and ruby red), grass, mandarin orange, and sweet biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, with the grass sneaking up on the fruits a bit and tipping the balance scale in favor of the hops. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a nicely Amarillo'ed DIPA, one that loads the hops without overwhelming the tongue.

Serving type: on-tap
