Outstanding
Notes: Double Brut IPA with mango and black currant celebrating the 10,000th batch brewed at Short’s. Powerful flavors of mango fruitiness and black currant tartness blend with alcohol notes from the high ABV. A huge amount of hops contributes to a palate coating body that smooths as you enjoy more. The burnt orange color is indicative of the warming finish

I had this from a bottle. It’s a strong one! Watch out.
Pours a ruddy golf amber. Tastes tartly sour. The black currants are prominent on the palate and likewise on the nose. Uneven and bitter.

Bought a bottle and saved it for a special occasion. Opened it on the last day of summer vacation. At 14% I hope I'm not hungover when I teach tomorrow. It doesn't drink as heavy as other high ABV.
Notably unique. A standout like no other. Crisp and effervescent like a Double Brut should be. Juicy like a Nebraska IPA. The hops are smooth and full. The mango and black currant blend together to form a new fruit flavor. The complexity is brilliant.

12 fl. oz bottle
Served in an IPA glass

This beer pours a deep copper color with burnt orange highlights. It is hazy and topped with an inch of tan head that leaves spotty lacing.

The aroma is fruity. I can pick out the mango and black current there is a solid toast/biscuit aroma as well.

The taste is citrus with the mango and black current. There is a slightly tart aspect to this beer. There is plenty of malt to try and balance the flavor.

Full bodied with a thick, smooth mouthfeel

This is pretty tasty and fruity for a big bodied, monster IPA.

Thank you Blackop555 for this
12 oz bottle poured into a teku

A- A clear reddish purple with a two off white head.

S- Black currents, some alcohol, some mango, earthy/piney hops.

T- Black currents, some mango, piney, touch of alcohol.

M- Smooth, light to medium body, dry.

O- Honestly thought this was only around 10% ABV, but was pleasantly surprised when I found out it is over 14%, love the currents in this.

Wow, never really had a beer quite like this. Beautiful golden orange liqueur appearance, big tropical mango aromas, black currant acid cuts through the sweetness nicely, lingering piney hop bitterness. boozy but doesn’t taste 14.20%, no lingering warming. Really unique beer, incredibly priced at $2.89 for a 12oz bottle.

Upfront, I want to give this thing somewhere between a 4 and a 4.10. The aroma is very much currant but combined with Brut yeast and mango it almost smells funky, like a Brett. Flavor is very fruity, with the mango really coming through. This one is warm, almost hot on the finish. It's weird: a clean, dry finish that leaves a lingering warmth. If it wasn't for the funky aroma, it'd mark it higher.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/18/2019. Pours moderately hazy deep orange/amber/light copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big juicy/fairly tart/tangy mangoes, black currants, red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, lime, peach, plum, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, light peppercorn, pine, honey, biscuit dough, light caramel/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops, mango, black currant, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge juicy/fairly tart/tangy mangoes, black currants, red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, lime, peach, plum, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, light peppercorn, pine, honey, biscuit dough, light caramel/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy mangoes, black currants, red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, lime, peach, plum, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, honey, biscuit dough, light caramel/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops, mango, black currant, and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness and tart/tangy fruit balance; with no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and tart/tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/sticky, and fairly resinous/rindy/acidic/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Minimal lingering warmth of 14.2% after the finish. Overall this is an incredible huge imperial Brut IPA! All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops, mango, black currant, and bready malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the huge ABV; with the modestly bitter/tart/tangy/resinous/drying finish; not overly aggressive. Feels like Galaxy, Mosaic, Citra. Extremely juicy and fairly dank/earthy hops/fruit; with a great balancing bready malt backbone. Bit of jammy fruit notes. Mild residual sweetness from lingering resin dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and amazing style example for the ABV.
