BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Community Beer Works
New York, United States
communitybeerworks.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.25%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Originally brewed based on a 15 minute old recipe, The Double IPA is a showcase for the glorious American hop. Taking inspiration from late night frozen food purchases, a copywritten number and the need for more, The Double IPA clocks in at a hefty 9.25% ABV and is liberally dosed with more “C” hops than you can shake a stick at. Drink it fresh. Drink it often.

The Double IPA is brewed once a month: when it’s gone it’s gone, but it will return in a few weeks!

Sample from the brewery.

Cloudy golden yellow pour, one inch head, a little bit of lacing, hard to really get a full feel for the lacing in a smaller pour.

Smells like sweet grain, citrus hops, and pine.

A bit more malt forward than I'm used to for an DIPA. Sweet grainy malt, then a bitter hop attack of grapefruit and pine. Slightly one dimensional.

Light bodied, well carbonated, crisp.

The IPA is much better, this one needs a little work, I think.

Last run was a little boozy, but I look forward to a growler every time this is released.
