Notes / Commercial Description:
Beyond the Gates Double IPA is for those of you who have been enjoying Seven Gates Pale Ale, and are ready for that next step. It's brewed with a generous dose of Citra and Simcoe hops that mingle with the sweetness of Belgian caramel malts to yield a full-bodied ale. This assertive ale balances a rich malt flavor with a pronounced hop character. Beyond the Gates is finished with a generous dry-hopping of Citra hops resulting in a very aromatic and flavorful DIPA.

On tap at Funcks in Palmyra, PA, part of a 4.5oz flight.

Yellow body with thick white head whic hpersisted and left not some much lacing, as a thick carpet of foam. Nice bite of hops on the nose, whcih translated to the taste. Beer was very thick and fuzzy in the mouth, with the hops and sweetness from the malt well balanced. Abv well hidden.

One of the most enjoyable beers of last night. Have only had Big Gruesome from this brewery (which I didn't care for) so nice to find this one.
