Notes / Commercial Description:
This amplified version of Congress Street IPA is a focused exhibition of the Galaxy Hop. Milky and yellow-orange in appearance, Double Dry Hopped Congress Street emits fragrant aromatics of mango, pine resin, grapefruit, pineapple, and peach. Explosive flavors of tropical fruit, grassy hop, nectarine, orange rind, and creamy malt inundate the palate with a thick, rich mouthfeel and soft, effervescent carbonation. The finish is full and oily, yet clean, with a light, modest bitterness.

MALT: American 2-row Barley, White Wheat, C-15, Dextrine, Dextrose

HOPS: Galaxy, Columbus

You have to really like hops, but if you do, this is really tasty - sweaty socks and well-balanced, with no bitterness.

08/2014 - Grapefruit, floral bouquet, hops up front; fruity, well hopped body with lingering peach, and a bit of pepper on the back of the palate; balanced, yet a wee bit of bitterness on the finish.

Smell, look, and feel are exactly what you expect from opaque NE-style IPAs

The taste is a different story. The two strongest notes are teriyaki-flavored beef jerky and yogurt-covered raisins. I'm not kidding - it's uncanny how similar this tastes to those two things. Sure, this has the vague tropical fruit note (mango maybe? It's just a note that screams "tropical" in my mind but it's not any single identifiable fruit) and the peppery hop spiciness. But yeah, teriyaki beef jerky and yogurt raisins. That's not necessarily a bad thing but I kinda wish I'd known this beer would taste like a trip to Ocean State Job Lot.
