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.

Growler sent to me and stillmatic2232 in a trade.

Pours out a rusty looking amber color, with a fizzy one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like pine resin, grass, and a good amount of grapefruity hop goodness.

This one has a really unique and cool flavor, brought on by the rice. There's some really dry bitterness, and tons of grapefruit hop flavor, with some pine, and a sugar cookie malt backbone.

The mouthfeel on this one is really cool- the rice gives it a really dry, smooth mouthfeel, incredibly crisp, and drinkable. The body is is of medium strength, and no alcohol is really present.

One of the more unique IPAs I've had, and that's definitely something to celebrate.
