Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
This gold colored West Coast style Double India Pale Ale has an intense hop nose, with aromas mainly of citrus. The high hop character dominates this IPA’s flavor profile. Made with American long grain rice, it is quite difficult to make but the rice contributes to this beer’s crisp aftertaste.

I am slowly opening my mind to the ipa's. This along w ZD are really changing my tune to start seeking more out like this. I thought it was well balanced without being to floral smelling nor too bitter at the end. Again, newer to enjoying ipa style beers but I would strongly recommend this as it seems very balanced for all to enjoy. Great beer.

Finally nailed a personal whale. Amazing aroma and taste with a fairly thin mouth feel. Brewers Art really on display.

Short Review, I've had this beer many times and I always enjoy it, pretty much every time I see it on tap I have one. I just love the hop profile and mouthfeel, it makes for a great and somewhat unique DIPA. While it may not be my favorite Kuhnhenn beer it is my most drank beer from them and I will continue to enjoy it. Nothings better than having DRIPA on tap at the source.
