Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Double IPA is created with a massive kettle charge of Australian and American hops. It opens in the glass with huge notes of ripe pineapple, pithy citrus, and dank saturated hops. As it warms it shows its depth and complexity. . . Sweet hints of malt intermingle with straight Tropicana. It has a soft but pointed bitterness and a rich, velvety mouth feel.

A- Floury and murky golden-yellow brew out of the can into my glass. The cap that forms is white with a thick and creamy texture and great retention. Tons of lacing webs and sheets drape the glass after sipping.

S- Juicy and fruity hops erupt out of the glass with a ripe and fresh character to them. Tropical and stone fruits right up front as mango, bubble gum, cantaloupe, tangerines, slight passionfruit, papaya and peach. Hops all the way here. Orange juice comes to mind later on.

T- The juice and nectar the aroma suggested certainly comes out but some astringency joins it and that is unique to the palate, perhaps hop powders or extracts as is common in the new bering practice. Mango, bubble gum, papaya, tangerine, heavily bitter citrus zest, mint, dankness, sweet tropical fruits and herbs come to mind. Again, the nectar is shoved aside a bit by the intense hop bitter grip on the taste buds. Have we reached an era of too many hops?

MF- Medium bodied with a creamy and frothy texture. A high level of carbonation and a bitter ending on the taste buds. Fairly silky smooth and padded on the palate.

The aroma is magnificent as with just about anything that results from Tree House + hops. The new wave of more hop powders/extracts/oils seems to have caught up with this brew and the taste is just muddled with a gripping bitterness that comes into and out of the equation with the epic juicy hops.

Beautiful hazy NE IPA with elegant lacing while drinking. Citrus and hops aroma greets you as you pop the top and complements the crisp hoppy flavor. High in ABV but extremely drinkable IPA. Velvety is truly how if feels in your mouth. One of the best beers I have ever d(r)ank.
