Solid double IPA, very flavorful and refreshing. Not too overpowering.

I'm clearly an outlier compared to the community, but I thought this was a fantastic beer. Cutting to my biggest complaint, which is just stylistic, is that this was too dark and the malt character/flavor was too noticeable on the finish for a DIPA. IMHO :-) Other than that, this was a winner. Nice, resin-y notes, quite rich, good balance. I would drink this one again in a heartbeat.

I was hoping this lived up to Belching Beavers Peanut Butter Milk Stout. It was an overall good Double/Imperial IPA, but it lacked the overall hop flavor that I desire. I got the tropical fruit, but it was overpowered by the malts. I got too much toffee.

A good DIPA, which is something I don't say often. Not too high on IBU so quite tasty.

As you can see from the photo, they call this "Dammed!" now. Attractive dark coppery amber. Lots of bubbles and swirls of foam. Quite spritzy on the tongue. Lucious aroma of ripe pears and citrus.

This is almost a holiday brew, though one with a hop problem. Rich and tangy with an underlying dark roasted malt flavor. Hot with alcohol and sharp with hoppy acidity. some fresh fruity flavors followed by plenty of bitterness. Peppery green mango flavor.

Lemon peel finish. One of the more drinkable DIPAs I've had this year, and this along with the Rabid Beaver Bite is more evidence that these guys know what they're doing in spite of the silly names. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Belching Beaver's tasting room on 30th Street.
