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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: A nice cloudy golden color. Poured with a fair head that died down slowly. Nice lingering lacing. Medium carbonation.

S: Pleasant light malty hoppy floral citrus sweet aromas.

T: Nicely malty and complex. Raisons, floral hops, citrus, slightly bitter, well balanced. The carbonation lingers on the tongue with a nice light bitter, sweet finish.

M: Medium body, finely carbonated

Overall: A great beer overall. On the sweeter maltier end of the DIPA spectrum. The alcohol is amazingly well hidden. Very drinkable and tasty. I think I prefer the Dreadnaught, but that is not a slight. I highly recommend Apocalypse Cow.
