Notes/Commercial Description:
A celebration of Vermont Hops, this Double IPA was wet hopped mashed with hops grown on the east wall of the Bobcat Cafe (Chinook) from here in Bristol, Vermont. THEN, liberally flavour hopped in the kettle with MORE “dried” brickwall whole leaf hops (Fuggle, Warrior, Golding, Nugget & Cascade) as well as with “dried” hops grown in Lincoln (Goldings) & New Haven (Cascade), Vermont. THEN dry hopped with MORE whole leaf hops (Centennial & Amarillo) during conditioning over the month of September. THEN dry hopped in the serving tank on the way to your glass (Cascade & Amarillo). So anticipate a slight hop haze of this 9.8% ABV Double IPA. Estimated bitterness is well above 100 IBU.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours a gold color with a good white head and some nice lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a fair amount of piney hops along with a bit of a citrus presence. Some bready malt in the background. The flavor has a bit of malt as the base but then goes into citrus and pine hops. Nothing too strong, but noticeable. Not quite what I expect from a double IPA. Mouthfeel is medium with a bit of alcohol and a modest bitterness in the finish. Not bad, though not something I would go out of my way for again.

Serving type: on-tap

Stayed in Bristol with Alewife for the weekend of 01-03APR11, and we made the Bobcat our nightly spot for nightcaps. While she enjoyed wine, I dove into this DIPA. Cost $5.00 for a 12oz snifter.

Poured a medium clear golden, with a wispy, thin white head. Lacing was solid in the glass as well. Nose was rindy, with grapefruit abounding; solid. Medium bodied, Brickwall was quite smooth going down the hatch.

After a smidge of malty sweetness on the palate, there soon arrived loads and loads of hops. They were listed on the menu, but the various varieties were too numerous to remember and/or note here. Suffice it to say, the bier had lots of rindy, pithy notes, with plenty of piney, resiny action coating the tongue. Wow! This one kicks, big time! Great job, Mark! Top-shelf!

On tap poured into a 12oz sniffer

Pours a very clear amber/red with very little head. Nose is sweet, grassy a bit like caramel.

Taste is sweet (think 90min), malty and rich, hops provide a nice bitter balancing point that evens it out nicely. Mouthfeel is smooth and rich, a bit sticky. Very tasty, slightly boozy but well hidden.
