BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dark Horse Brewing Company
Michigan, United States
darkhorsebrewery.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our most Aromatic IPA. An 8.5% India Pale Ale that is very reminiscent of the hop’s cousin in the Mulberry family. Lots of hop aroma with just the right amount of bitterness as we still like our balance around here. Between the secret blend of the most DANK hops that we can get our hands on and a "more than healthy" dose of double dry hopping, this beer can be announced to the nose from across the room that someone is definitely having a Safety Meeting.

It's taken me a week to drink 3 of my six pack. I've given it three different tries, this just isn't for me. I drain poured half the other night.

Too sweet for me, and lack of "smell" on this fella.

Not a big fan. Paid about $15 for a 6-pack after reading positive reviews on Beer Advocate. Smells of pine and grass, with a very boozy taste to me. Would not buy again.

I don't understand the positive marks for this beer at all. Had this on tap in my office.

Look: Pours medium dark/brown-ish, looks malty in the glass.
Smell: Super malty, bready, lots of pine
Taste: Insanely bitter and malty and nothing else. Almost tastes like chewing tobacco in the worst possible way.
Feel: Somewhat substantial, medium carbonation

I'm a big IPA guy but this beer is just straight up unpleasant and hard to drink.
