The Admiral is 3 Brother's double ipa. I love the style so I was excited to try this from our newly opened local brewery.

It pours a dark golden color with shades of amber. It smells citrusy. Grapefruits and maybe tangerines? Anyways the nose is pretty solid and the taste follows suit. It's a bit sweeter than my favorite 2IPA's but I wouldn't say it's "too sweet." There's a nice bitterness to balance out the sweetness of the caramel and fruit flavors in the beer. The mouthfeel is pretty good! medium bodied, not too thin, but not over the top chewy either.

Good, local IPA!

The Admiral is a dark amber IPA that borders the line between IPA and Imperial IPA. I'd say it's dangerously close to be considered Imperial, but the guys have it listed as an IPA on their site. It is well balanced with a bitter hoppy taste that compliments the amber malts in here. It's my favorite beer they have made so far.
