Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mdm46410 on 11-23-2008

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: Bright orange body, yellow hue. Almost crystal clear. Lively, slightly off-white head. Retention adequate.

S: Creamy/whip cream strong up front, undertones of lime citrus hops very fresh yet subtle, clean malts, no booze.

T/M: Insane creamy mouthfeel up front, feels like marshmallow cream. Turns to a hop bomb with intense tropical fruit citrus flavors with a lingering bitterness as if just bitting into a grapefruit.

O: Blanketed malt bill, creamy smooth texture of a nitro Victory Donnybrook. No alcohol burn but warms up the body. Highly impressed.

Poured from the bomber into a tripel glass. Very nice orange/amber color with two finger head that takes a while to dissipate and laces from the rim of the glass to the bottom. As expected, the hops are there right upfront on the nose, with hints of fruit. Somehow I smell something almost like cherries. The hops do hit hard on your first sip, but then mellow out with the lactose. Pleasantly suprised that I was expecting to be hit over the head with pine tree taste but it jumped back from that. The bitterness comes back on the throat and leaves an aftertaste, though not a bad one. You can definitely pick out the the high alcohol "imperialness".

I would not say I am a huge fan of this style, but for me this is surprisingly good. Tried it solely based on 3F reputation and it's limited release and am glad I did!
