Lorenzini Double IPALorenzini Double IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Maui Brewing Co.
Hawaii, United States
mauibrewingco.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.60%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
A special beer for a special cause. The name comes from the sharks "Ampullae of Lorenzini", the shark's electro sensory organ used to detect changes in electric fields. This American Double IPA was brewed with blood orange, local citrus, and Maui cane sugar. The unique hop profile of Azacca, El Dorado, and Sorachi Ace lend big grapefruit, ripe mango and tropical aromas, followed by a clean, mildly sweet bitterness. At 7.6% abv and approximately 80 IBUs this is a deceptively drinkable Double IPA.

Straw color with white head that dedicates quickly. Very hoppy aroma. Taste is hoppy with a grapefruit added with bitter aftertaste and no alcohol taste.

Very hoppy and citrusy. A bit dry on the finish with a delayed orange juice taste. Orange juice and Maui cane sugar are supposedly added. I taste the orange juice, but not the sugar.

Aroma is citrus, tropical fruit, sweet fruit and earthy malts. The flavor is citrus/sweet fruit, earthy malts, light tropical fruit and a bitter/slightly spicy finish. A slightly stronger regular IPA.

12 oz can..."canned on 090116" on the bottom" so about 7 weeks in the can

Pours moderatly cloudy, a nice shade of medium amber, sturdy and lasting khaki head, a nice looking film, and extensive fields of fine sheeting all up and down the glass...nice looking brew

Pungent hopped up sniff, with ripe melon, mango and pineapple coming to mind.

Delicious DIPA, big, bold, flavorful and highly enjoyable...more of the same from thenose, big fresh tropical fruit notes, along with some smoke on the back end...ample maple malts to balance thing out..10% brew with not quite all the alcohol in check...high quality DIPA in a can, all the way from Hawaii...nice

Poured from can into wine glass, nice 2 finger dirty white head, hangs around for the entirety and provides beautiful lacing. Clear reddish amber in the glass. Smells of malt, citrus. Taste initially if caramel sweetness with the blood orange citrus/mild sourness coming out on the middle, finishes with mils bitterness and some residual sweetness on the finish. Great mouthfeel, no alcohol coming thru. Dangerous beer. Picked this up as a pick six, going to have to go grab a sixer of this. This might be one of the best blood orange ipa's I have tried

Blood Oranges, Bitter, Tropical, Bready

Orange-amber with red hues, Lorenzini is cloudy with loads of particles in suspension and an off-white foamy lace with legs. The aroma offers fresh orange, tropical fruit, floral and herbal notes. Big blood orange flavors, a hit of mango, bright citrus edges and a zesty undertone provide an even bitterness. A bit bready with hints of chocolate, caramel and richer layer of sweetness from the Maui cane sugar, which really works with the blood orange. And by using Azacca, El Dorado and Sorachi Ace hops, it's a refreshing break from all of the heavy-handed Amarillo-Cascade-Simcoe hop bombs out there.

STYLE: American Double IPA | ABV: 7.6% | AVAILABILITY: Winter

This is a pretty good and unique double IPA. I found the beer description pretty accurate. Big mango and tangerine taste up front followed by mild bitterness on the finish. Probably the sweetest tasting double IPA I've had, but that's not a bad thing. I'll buy this again sometime

Very good IPA. Nice aroma and the bitterness of the blood orange was a nice taste that blends in nicely with the hop profile. A bit different but very tropical and good.
