Notes / Commercial Description:
Double Dry-Hopped? Different Hops every year? D.H. IPA is our designated hitter, the one in the lineup you wait for! Brewed with a sturdy malt body to balance out the outrageous amount of hops, this double IPA is not fooling around. This year we used a zippy blend of Amarillo, Apollo, Nugget, and Kohatu hops that are sure to please. Pair it with spicy food and an adventurous spirit!

Muddy brown body with orange hues. Half an inch of soapy white head. Great rentetion and lacing.

Caramel malts. Underlying pine and orange. Touch of honey and maybe some graham cracker.

Follows the nose. Caramel maltyness. Floral, orange, slight pine, honey, touch of citrus bitterness in the finish.

Fuller bodied for the style. A touch creamy. Low carbonation.

Somewhat disappointed with this. Heavy malt character. Lacking any tropical or juicy qualities. Ugly muddy look. Reminded me of a refined 7 month old Kelso Industrial Pale Ale. I dont understand the highly rated reviews below....

Had many times, most recently poured from my kegerator into stemmed hf wine type glass.

Look is deep orange and clear with a very fluffy white head.
Smells of tropical fruits
taste is equal hops and malt. Goes down easy for 8.5%
feels slick and a bit oily on the tongue. In a good way
Overall a great beer from a great brewery that just happens to be closer to me than the nearest grocery store!
