BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
treehousebrew.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer was conceived with the intent to push the concept of Doppelganger to the limit of flavor and intensity. Both the kettle hopping rates and dry hopping rates were increased while keeping the base beer the same. The result is intense, but also surprising in its balance and softness. The mouthfeel is viscous and coating with flavors of overripe mango, dank citrus, and tropical fruit balanced by a sharp but pleasant finish. A treat to warm you up as a true New England winter takes hold!

Poured a hazy orange into a tulip glass. The citrus smells that this beer has is insane...plenty of mango, orange, tangerine and pineapple notes. Such a smooth and citrusy mouthfeel with hardly any bitterness on the finish. The juiciness is there with every sip. It's hard to even taste the 8.2% of alcohol that this beer is supposed to have. The use of hops in this beer is nothing short of outstanding! It gets better with every sip especially as the beer warms up a bit. Overall this beer shines as one of the best dipa out there if not the best!! Tree House really out-did themselves in producing this amazing beer...A++

Pours an opaque, orange-juice color with a frothy, two fingers of off-white foam on top. Great head retention with a foamy layer and ring sticking around for quite some time. Lacing consumes the areas of glass that used to contain beer. Aroma is orange, clementine, and tangerine hops with biscuity, bready malts underneath. It has a fruit sweet aroma, and yet remains in check. Flavor profile features a massive load of hops - orange, clementine, tangerine, papaya, and mango with biscuit malts in the background. Hops are highlighted, but done exceptionally well. Everything blends together, working to form a massive hop bomb that refrains from just being a blast of flavor with no substance. Mouth feel is medium-thick, with a filling, smooth feel. Overall, marvelous usage of hops. While its smaller brother - Doppelganger - comes off a little harsh at times, Doubleganger is the smooth talking older brother. Sublime smoothness combined with world class hop usage makes this one of the most delightful DIPAs to sip on for those seeking citrus, semi-sweet notes.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.
