Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Overhead is an American-style Imperial IPA. This beer is loaded with our favorite hops; Amarillo, Columbus, Centennial and Simcoe. It’s bittered with a gigantic charge of Columbus and Simcoe early in the kettle that is followed by several rounds of late kettle and whirlpool hops using Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe. In the end, Overhead is brewed with over 5 pounds of hops per barrel which includes two rounds of dry hopping to create a cascade of pine, resin and citrus hop flavors that consume your palate. Although we brew Overhead with the same imported Pilsner and light crystal malts as Head High and ferment it with our house ale strain to produce a dry crisp finish, this blend of different hops creates an entirely new experience all its own.

Herbal smell and malty bitterness that doesn't sit quite well.

Slightly hazy amber with a large white froth that recedes to a thick collar.

Smell is peach, orange, mango at first, then metallic astringent pine following.

Taste is more traditional, with cracker, pine and grapefruit.

Exceedingly frothy with a dry finish.

Semi hazy Orange glow with a thin white head. Can already tell the lacing is amazing.

Piney and grapefruit hop resin on the nose with a touch of citrus. Some floral notes with a faint scent of caramel. Incredibly smooth.

Slick rounded mouthfeel. Full bodied. Sweet caramel and pale malt up front rides through along the sides of the tongue into a giant grapefruit and piney hop bomb. Undertones of other citrus fruit. Assertive hop bitterness balances the sweetness of the malt. Throat clearing and soothing bitterness. Big long finish. Hop resin lingers on the back of the tongue.

Not complex in the least but one of the smoothest dipas I've ever had. Standard but well put together flavors.

Poured from can into glass, a hazy golden color with not much head retention. Some lacing is present with this IPA. A definite pine and citrus smell is present. Taste is pleasing, actually a bit peppery with a slightly bitter after taste. A good feel though, not overly carbonated. Very light as well. Enjoyed this one and I'm not a huge IPA drinker, but the overall quality of this was good enough that I would definitely have another glass or two in the future!
