Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Devil Dog will chew you up and leave you whimpering for more.

At 98 IBU’s and 5.6 pounds of hops to the barrel it is an all out assault on the senses. Devil Dog Started as a labor of love but quickly took on a life of its own, leaving us drooling like Pavlov’s dogs at the mere mention of its name. Triple dry hopped and at 10% ABV, more than one of these bad boys will cause you to howl at passing strangers and chew up your toys, or anything else you can get your sharp little teeth on.

98 IBU

Hop assault right from the beginning. Hazy orange/amber body with small soapy head. Aroma is strong pine cleaner, taste is sharp and bitter, hops and citrus. Tang hides the high ABV which lurks in the background, but does provide some warmth in the throat. Medium lingering bitter finish.

Poured a clearish auburn tinted golden body with two finger head and a descending lace ring. Typical strong, overpowering citric, piney, sharp hop aroma that is typical in these beers. This wasn't a bad beer but for some reason it just didn't click with me and became a chore to finish as I got down to the last quarter of bomber. Citric hop bitterness is plenty here (might I say tenfold) and the ABV isn't a nuisance until beer warms near finish. However, outside of the hops there wasn't too much going on in this simplistic beer b/c I found the malts (sweet caramel, bread) that could add balance and complexity to this beer to be minimal at best. A decent "DIPA" but not my first choice.
