Double IPADouble IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Six Row Brewing Company
Missouri, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Double India Pale Ale is bigger in hop character and alcohol than our Extra Pale Ale. It is sure to please even the most discerning hop-head! Also known as Imperial IPA, this intensely hoppy, yet very drinkable beer lets the malty characteristics take a step back and allows the hops to really shine. Brewed with almost two (2) pounds of hops per barrel and left unfiltered, Six Row Double IPA showcases the citrusy and piney characteristics of the Columbus, Centennial, and Chinook hops.

Gummy, Bitter, Fruity, Buttery

A beautiful looking beer, good clarity and great lacing is a start. The hop flavor is there with suggestions of grapefruit and mint, bit kiss of alcohol and ripe fruit in the middle. Toffee evens this brew out, yeast and cracker-like malt follows.

This was an odd one. I have never had a beer that was so fizzy and foamy, literally took me 3 pours to fill my glass, as it would just keep producing immense amounts of foam, no matter than smoothness of the pour. The flavor was decent, nothing exceptional. Mainly a hop forward offering with little malt backbone, not my favorite style for a DIPA, but decent none the less. But oh man, here comes back that foam/fizzy problem again. Heartburn set in pretty badly and I felt like my stomach was filling with foam. I started to get a nauseous feeling and so decided to throw the remainder away. I still give it an okay rating for the flavor alone. I would be willing to try again and see if this was just a bad batch, but am a bit nervous to do so.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No

A good DIPA, but average.
Nothing remarkable.
These days there are too many excellent beers.
