BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
9.5-11.0% ABV, 100 IBUs - This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, “not normal.” Cheers! June release.

Hazy golden/amber hue, fresh froth atop, white as whipped cream, and looking's lovely.

Aroma: Invigorating. An blending of citrus and tropical fruit esters, with a side order of pine needles.

Taste: Good dose of bitterness hits us at the start, plenty of hoppy flavors riding the palate. And then I'm picking up the milk. An imperial milk IPA? What the??? It's truly creamy, truly hoppy, and totally tasty! Yum. Never too anything, not feeling too strong, just enough everything, and not too much of nothing. A creamy IPA, if there ever was one, and I'm not sure if there was. We get orange, tangerine, mango maybe, and then this layer of light, sweet, creamy goodness.

I wonder what the label tells us? "This complex double India Pale Ale has an inns citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, "not normal." Cheers!

That just about says it. Mmm. Good stuff.
