beautiful brew, east coast style with mosaic and citra, the better of the two recent beers in this style i have had from these guys. they always impress me no matter what they do though, do they have a taproom? i would love to check them out next time i am up that way. in any event, this is tasty stuff, citra in front of mosaic for me, but both there in all of their dry hoppy, fruity, oily glory, no bitterness to this one, and barely any of that overhopped green vegetal bite. i get fresh orange juice, pineapple from the can, tangy fresh lemon, and some kiwi fruit or something, complex and well layered, green grape and fleshy pear too, almost pulpy feeling with a fuller body, wheat and oats likely in the mash here, but never heavy to me, never filling, i think the high carbonation helps with that but so does the summery fruity hop complexion, its like drinking sunshine, it feels almost healthy and it makes me happy. i wish they were all this good. i have been so critical of these hazy styles, but when done this well, they can be a real joy. citra and mosaic like i havent seen them in awhile. a faith restoring brew. awesome stuff!

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a one pint can on August 29, 2018. Brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops. Notes of mango, lemon, citrus, earthy pine, tropical fruit, herbal and stone fruit. Highly recommended.

Awesome beer. Darker cloudy orange juice appearance with frothy head and lacing. Dank hop scent with rich citrus notes. Taste is pure tangy citrus, dank, mild bitterness. Feel is soft, plush, velvety, a pillow of mouth watering mouth filling juice with a mild alcohol bite. I asked the store owner where I got this what he thought of it, and he said "It's the closest thing a Chicago brewery makes like Tree House." My brother, while visiting me from out of town, sampled one I was drinking and immediately grabbed a can for himself and asked me to grab a four pack to send him in Florida the next time it came out. A coworker said he tried it and bought three four packs. I agree with them all. An outstanding beer.

Hazy orange juice in appearance. The smell is pineapple, mango, orange, and hazy hops. The taste adds some light caramel malt, pine and grapefruit. Even has decent hop bitterness given the fruit bomb vision.

16oz Tallboy
$14.99 4-pack
Iron & Glass - Romeoville, IL

Double Grid is one of those haze monsters. It's got the look of pulpy orange juice, maybe even a shade darker. The foam is pure white and easily grows to a couple fingers on the pour. The head eventually settles to a chunky cap that shows some impressive staying power.

The nose is rich and fully saturated. Pineapple, grapefruit and handfuls of other vague tropical fruits explode from the glass. There's a welcomed background forest quality, a little dank and a little pine. The malt base is simple and clean but also assertive, adding a quality sugar cookie component. A spicy bite of alcohol tops it all off. This stuff is smelling mighty fine.

The flavor profile manages to follow the nose. It's well rounded and full. It's tropical upfront with a broiled grapefruit note that's fully enjoyable. Pineapple, mango and a whole smattering of other vague tropical fruits abound. That dank forest quality is along the periphery and adds some depth. The malt base, again, is simple but well done and rather ample sugar cookie. Mild, spicy alcohol fumes bring up the rear.

The body is soft and plush without being heavy or chewy. The carbonation leans toward the lighter side and most importantly, this one finishes dry with a nice bitterness. This is one of those hybrid IPAs that are done properly and, because of this, is an easy one to put away.

Double Grid is likely the best beer I've had from Hop Butcher. It very much reminds of some of the newer Toppling Goliath creations. It's saturated and expressive while remaining dry and moderately bitter. This is a beer I would buy again, no doubt.

Canned 8/24/18; drank 8/30/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big off-white head; a thick curtain of off-white lace.

Grapefruit, mild caramel & faint pine notes on the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Grapefruit & mild caramel flavors up front; mild pine dryness on the finish.

Better than Grid, and not bad, but in a world of IPA excellence, there's no need to track this down.
