Squatters Hop Rising Double IPASquatters Hop Rising Double IPA
Notes: A mighty hop-lover's dream. Hop rising adds malty backbone to an intense Imperial IPA. This insanely smooth dry-hopped ale has everything: 9% ALC/VOL, 72 IBUs, and yes, thats our master brewer Jason Stock pitching in on the label.

Chilled 12 oz can right from the can, which was canned 23 days ago. Excited pop top spit some foam and aroma, which is that piney fruit loop you want from an IPA.
Taste is a hop bomb. Expressive malt backbone for balance. Good ABV burn.,
Feel is lively, bit slick.
Overall, right fine DIPA, local, very fresh. Recommended!

Smooth mouthfeel. Even muted Too much. Low nitrogen. Definitely an imperial. Hoppy of course. Malt start to butter finish. Slightly sweet befitting an imperial. Only sell it here in cans per the Utah backwards liquor laws. Nothing over 5 percent on draft. It’s a shame because I feel it would be much better on draft. Good beer though.

12oz can

Kinda cloudy, unfiltered, red-orange. Nice warm malty and boozy hop-forward citrus/flower/dank. Taste is kinda sweet and boozy, some wet cardboard, grass and dank. It's easy to drink, kinda slick but the carbonation and feel is on point, you can taste the alcohol, but its not obnoxious, the 9% is more like a 7%...

Doesn't hit like it should, the hop flavor here is just sad. Doesn't taste bad as a strong ale, but sucks as an Imperial IPA. But if you're just trying to get drunk, this could be your brand

Can pour at SLC airport- apparently no tap beer over 5% in UT. Deep amber color with eggshell head leaving moderate lacing. Nose is mild citrus and sweet malt. Taste follows with notes of resin, heavy on the malt that lingers into the finish. Tasty enough to quaff a couple on my short layover.

Pours an amber color with a fluffy white head. Nice retention and lacing. Smell is typical for a DIPA...nothing earth shattering. Taste is a syrupy, honey, malty and a nice hop presence, not extremely bitter. Nice mouthfeel . Appropriate for the style with medium carbonation. Overall a nice DIPA. It represents the style well but just doesn't have that 'thing' that would place it in the upper ranks of DIPA's.

Poired a rich amber color with about a 1.5 inch off white color, almost like vanilla creme soda.

I got a berry, honey, and faint straw smell.

The texture is wonderful for a double ipa, and the bitterness is strong but not overpowering. Not a complex flavor profile but definitely is an American Style IPA.

Its a pretty good beer overall.

Amber with yellow off white pillowy head. Aroma isn't that strong, orange and malt, sweet. Flavor is also restrained in hop character, with some malt and booze, light bitterness but not terribly sweet. Pleasant though. Medium to medium full mouthfeel.

*Drinking on 4/24/20 two weeks prior to the best-buy date which is 5/7/20*

Appearance: Pours a clear, deep, bronze-orange color with a white head. SRM of 12. Darker than most IPAs. (3.75)

Aroma: Near no fruit here. Strong aromas of herbs and with some pine. Hard to detect any fruit. Maybe some citrus. Mostly cardboard and herbs/pine. (3.00)

Flavor: Flavor follows with near no fruit. Just strong resinous and bitter herbs. Some pine. Definite cardboard. Finishes sweet and candied malt as expected. (2.75)

Feel: Heavy-bodied. Low to moderate carbonation. Finishes sweet and resinous with a crystal malt sweetness. (3.75)

Compared to Hop Rising Tropical IPA 4/24/20: Pours a slightly darker color with a smaller head. Milder aromas. More herbs, cardboard, and orange. Less fruit and tropics. Slightly more bitter with more carbonation. Winner: Tropical

Overall: Something really went wrong with this beer. Perhaps it was oxidized and old. I get a lot of herbs and old cardboard. Hardly any fruit. I haven't had beer this bad since an oxidized Voodoo Ranger I drain poured. This is as bad. Yes, it's slightly aged, but still two weeks prior to the best-buy date. If I find it more fresh and I have the courage I might try this one again. (Final Rating: 3.02)

I know that I will probably get laughed at by the beer snobs on here......but I honestly cannot tell the difference between this and Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. They are both world-class in my book.

From a can marked enjoy by 5/30/20. Amber color with a finger of cream colored head. Not much smell, maybe a little pine. Medium body. Malt-forward taste with earthy and piney hops. Tasty!

This has become my go to beer when the 12 pack option came to my local store I was very happy. Tastes great, smell is great, I don't really care about look or feel just taste good honestly and this Double IPA is absolutely outstanding.

From old, undated notes. Had this on draft.

Clear dark orange color.

Nice white head; strong lacing.

Nice orange nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Taste is of tasty, mild oranges & grapefruit; bitterness is there but not overbearing.

A nice surprise.
