BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Melvin Brewing / Thai Me Up
Wyoming, United States
melvinbrewing.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The great Citradamus predicts this IIPA will be one of your favorites. Citradamus is Melvin’s world class IIPA brewed with 100% Citra hops, pristine mountain water and northwest malt. Flavors of citrus (duh), pine and total dankness. Dry hopped with ludicrous amounts of Citra for that classic hoppiness that Melvin has become known for.

IBU: 76

Canned on 5/18, consumed on 6/3 - poured from a 12oz can into my Bruery tulip.

Deep persimmon body with the clarity of old stained glass supports a half-hearted champagne cap. Fast running lacing; unspectacular retention; faint sticky legs.

Candied orange, and low skunk like cannabis notes in the nose - some floral and cotton candy notes as well.

Robust palate entry with heavy sweetness initially, giving way to an electric wave of herbaceous/minty bitterness followed by a punch of ugli fruit/tangelo in the expansive medium finish. Faint graininess from the base malt, and a bit of heat from the alcohol, but no real off notes. Improves a bit as it warms as some of the mango notes emerge.

Full bodied, not-quite-sticky, fairly warming, though I might prefer a bit more attenuation in this style.

Sort of a boozy, sloppy version of Kern's Citra, but still pretty tasty.

Almost clear glowing orange color with beige head. Aroma is quite intense with lots of piney, resiny and orange forward hop notes. Some crystal malts in the background as well. Taste is sweet and malty at first with overripe orange notes, tangerines, sugared pink grapefruit flesh, orange candy but also pine resin and other earthy hop notes. Finish has some bitterness but overall the beer leans on the sweet side. Light alcohol warmth but it's legit for 9.5%. Medium to full bodied with smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. A more old school take on a DIPA but it's quite tasty and well made.
