The best DDH beer on tap at the time we were there (trumped both DDH Fort Point and DDH Stillings St). Dank and bitter, but thick nonetheless. Absolutely incredible.

Double Dry Hopped?
Wait a minute. Have I just learned something new? When I came across this, I just assumed it was a DIPA...never gave it a second thought. But...I was wrong...it's not. I don't think I've come across a DDH style....until now. And, if I had one...I wasn't aware.
I had to hit the books to figure this masterpiece out...so, it seems that the dry hop schedule is broken in half, and repeated. I'm not sure how to describe it. The hoppiness is definitely amped up, but it's missing the burn of a higher alcohol content, and it's a little lighter in the malt sense, than an Imperial.
Regardless of technical stuff, this beer is good. Real good. I'll definitely be looking for this, again.

Tasted from can. Pours a super hazy yellow with white head. Aroma of pine, resin, pineapple, melon, spices. Moderate to heavily bitter. Flavors of grapefruit, mango, melon, pineapple, resin, biscuits. Incredible imperial IPA.
