Full Throttle Double IPAFull Throttle Double IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sebago Brewing Company
United States | website

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.40%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Big juicy American hops burst from this unfiltered deep amber ale. The caramel sweetness takes a backseat only to the abundance of citrusy, piney flavors and aromas. Dominated by Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Falconer's Flight hops, our double IPA has been dry-hopped for over a month.

Fantastic beer. I have traditionally stayed away from the imperial or double IPAS more because I'm interested in taste and drinkability over Alc. content etal. I had this on draft at the brew house with a meal.... WOW! It had the feel of a regular IPA in its color and sessionability, but after 2 I could certainly feel it.
i truely enjoyed my first double IPA, unfortunately you can only get it on draft. However after speaking with them directly they have plans to expand to other pubs, even in Hudson, MA at the Horseshoe!

On tap at The Great Lost Bear in Portland, ME. A real treat of a big beer, this brew smelled huge.Hops and alcohol upfront with a background sweetness. A sticky head retention and dark orange color show this beer has a big malt base but the freshly dried hop presence which included citrus and pine tipped the balance to hops as a DIPA should. The hop flavor and aroma combined for a complex hop lover's dream. The brewers squeezed all they could from the bitter flowers. Every sip revealed something and invited another taste for exploration. Wonderful find.

Had this at the Portland brew pub location,came in a 16oz pint glass a clear beep bronze color with a thinner off white head,big hop nose dry resiny with a bit of grapefruit rind the malt presence is light with only a trace of caramel sweetness.Full on hop bomb on the palate big shot of citrus rind and fresh cut grass then finishing with an onslaught of resiny pine.The malt base is there adding a bit of sweetness and body,pleasantly surprised to find a DIPA anywhere in Portland really this fixed my hop fix for the evening.
