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.

22oz. bottle shared with a friend and poured into tulip glasses.

Nice orange hue with a decent and somewhat rocky head.

Smells of sweet citrus and mango, maybe some pine and pineapple.

Tastes literally like a creamy IPA. I was surprised by how much character the lactose actually contributed.

Mouthfeel was probably the most interesting part. The creaminess of the body of the beer helped to carry the bitterness much longer than I would have expected, but in a very pleasant way.

A beer truly unlike anything else I've ever had.

Poured into a tulip glass. Likely not fresh.

A: Dull copper color. A finger of head that retreats to a frothy rim and film. A little cloudy. Very nice lacing.

S: POW. Very fragrant, right off the bat. A lot of pineapple, less citrus, a little hops.

T: The taste does not follow the smell. Bitter hops, pine, and booze. Floral at the end.

M: Full bodied. High carbonation. Not very smooth.

O: A very good IPA (double). The smell is the best aspect of this beer. The taste and feel fell a little short. For hop heads that enjoy a tropical fruit/citrus aroma, this is right up your alley. I will certainly try this ale again. It is a good substitute for zombie dust.
