Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial IPA |  11.00% ABV

Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
9.5-11.0% ABV, 100 IBUs - This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, “not normal.” Cheers! June release.

A - Pours a mostly clear and light amber with a solid 2 finger cap on top. Retains very well and never quite vanishes.

S - Tangy dull citrus, yeasty bread, a mix of stone fruit and mango, smells sweet. Solid hops come to the forefront once warmed up a bit.

T - A multitude of citrus, tangerine, orange, mandarin, some lemon, sharp and zesty. Spicy floral jumps out in the middle along with a white bread malt backing and sweet caramel. The malt is sweet and hefty but lighter. (If that makes any sense) Mango comes in the mix along with a notes of pine that increases with bitterness toward the finish. Citrus oil is left on the aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied but seemed hefty, moderate carbonation, very soft and creamy feel, dry finish.

Great hops with a hefty but light malt backing. I liked the spiciness and it carried well with the all around citrus profile. Great mouthfeel as it tricks your palate trying to decide if it's full or light. Glad I got my hands on one of these.
