BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Against The Grain Brewery & Smokehouse
Kentucky, United States
atgbrewery.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is a very hop forward American style IPA. Brewed with Pale, Vienna, Munich and wheat malt for a solid base for all American hops, focusing mainly on the variety “Citra.” Citra hops are a relatively new variety introduced in 2008. It was bred as a hybrid of a number of different hops, including Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, U.S. Tettnanger, East Kent Golding, Bavarian, Brewers Gold, and other unknown hops. The resulting hop, Citra, has a distinct citrusy and tropical fruit flavor and aroma. In Citra ass down we used American Columbus for bittering and 11# of Citra at the end of the boil for late kettle addition flavor and aroma. Then we added 6 more pounds Citra and 5# Centennial post fermention for aroma. Rebrewed for your tasting pleasure!

I listened to the directions. Serve at 40 and drink from the can. I must admit there is a notable difference drinking from the can then the glass. Smoother mouthfeel, almost creamy like. Good stuff.

First of all, follow the directions on the can:48° from the can. Big difference.

I didn't see the beer, poured a little in a glass looked fine.

More importantly, from the can. The aroma was strong in pine, and citrus. Definitely more pronounced with warming.

Taste: great. This could be a GOTO DIPA. Citrus bomb, pine, some tropical fruit with warmkng.

Resinous- love it. Very, very hoppy.

Follow the brewery's instructions. Drink from the can at 48°. Buy a kitchen thermometer if you don't have one. An excellent beer.

Poured from the tall can into my IPA glass.
A: Pours a clear light golden amber with a medium white head and some nice lacing.
S: Bread and hops with some spice .
T: Kind of fruity at first with a hint of spices and hops.
F: Medium body somewhat thick but well balanced.
O: A real nice under rated Double/ Imperial IPA not to hoppy but real nice,it goes down fast.

Consumed from can, so the look rating must be taken with a grain of salt...Nose is nice and hoppy. Pine needles, bitterness, orange peel. Really nice. Taste is smooooth. Nice citra hops coming through - not as hoppy as other DIPAs that I've had, but it still packs a punch. Smooth drinking and alcohol well hidden. Taste really follows the nose. A hoppy punch with fruit peel and a bitter aftertaste. Overall a great beer.

From a tall boy (bb July 2) into a nonic, pours a clear light amber with a foamy 2 finger off white head, modest lacing. Nose is bready malts, big citrusy orange, some mint and a little melon.

16 oz can with the (overly long?) BB date stamp of 12-1-18.
Pours hazy copper in color with a large,fluffy, durable off-white head.
On and off its a bit too dank for me in the aroma or the flavor, but this is a very hoppy IPA with Citra and Centennial dominating the aroma and flavor profile. Unexpected hint of vanilla. It has moderate bitterness for style.
Smooth, medium-full body and medium+ carbonation.
