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.

Regurgitated from notes I took while drinking this beer. Here goes:

A: A cloudy orange (can still see through to the other side, however) with a massive, fluffy, white head. As the head dissipates it leaves plenty of lacing. I'm beginning to think that FFF has the appearances of their beers down to a T. Splendid.

S: Very intricate if not somewhat funky. Pacific NW hops impart smells of citrus, grapefruit and pine (mostly the latter two). However, there is a large presence of crystal malt and lactose sugar. The latter imparts a very milky smell. I'm not sure I like it, but I have to give FFF points for piquing my interest.

T: Funky, but good. Mixture of hops and milk/malt sugars. Initially taste the crystal malt followed by an aftertaste of milk and hops - yes, the milk and hop tastes are interspersed, which is what I think the brewers were going for. The taste rather follows the nose. Very complex.

M: Excellent. Thick and creams - lies heavily on the tongue and fully coats the palate.

O: Very good. An interesting and complex beer.
