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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

this tastes and feels like an enormous india pale lager, except where the doughy lager yeast usually kicks in, its a cleaner even righter crisper thing, odd for a starch to do that, but apparently it does, what a cool beer! average looking for an ipa, with some bronze shades to it and a real tall just off white head. its definitely a hop bomb, sturdy lemon notes and oily hops radiate from this beer, and i get grass and lime zest too, its not sharp at all, but it is indeed potent. the flavor has a similar hop profile as the nose, just with more bitterness built in, pushing the IBUs up a bit. the malt base is interesting, big enough on the pale front for the abv present, but the rice soothes it, sort of smoothing the whole thing out, bringing the hops to a realm they dont usually get to go. i dont ever taste rice i dont think, but its contribution to the beer is undeniable. one of the quickest finishing and cleanest finishing big hoppy beers i can remember. there really isnt anything else like this out there that i am aware of. so so good.
