American Double / Imperial IPA |  8.70% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed in collaboration with our good friend, brewer, and fellow Twin Peaks admirer, Ben Potts.

Ben and Jean conceived of Bob via Agent Coopers' deductive rock throwing method (see  http://www.tiredhands.com/2014/06/bob.html  for more information). Bob is brewed with oats, spelt, D2 syrup, fennel pollen, and cardamom. Conditioned on heaps of local cherries. Well hopped with Simcoe and Columbus.

On tap at TH.

Hazy pour, reddish-amber color, with a half inch or so of foamy white head; decent retention and random lacing. Herbal aroma, cherry pits, grassy hops. A nice tasting beer, largely reflecting the nose, herbal and leafy, cherry pits with a touch of almond, not too fruity or sweet, which was a good thing, wet grass, light notes of citrus zest, earth, and raw mint, crackery malts. The finish was dry and moderately bitter. Mouthfeel was crisp, body light-medium, carbonation soft. A solid brew, with good, subtle complexity.

Served on-tap at the pub.

A - Pours hazy amber orange with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving thin sheets of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of earthy spices, tart cherries, pine resin, fruit rind and backing mildly toasted malt.

T - Starts off with the toasted malt and cherries quickly being joined by the pine, fruit zest, spices and earthy must. Finish is tart and dry, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Chewy, fruity feel with a bit of dryness.

O - Definitely a strange beer. It has some interesting flavors for sure but I am not sure they all go together. Nice to try but on to the next one.
