COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In celebration of the opening of the Clinton Presidential Library, Diamond Bear Brewing Company introduced its seasonal beer, Presidential IPA. This in beer terms is a "big beer" with lots of flavor. This India Pale Ale has a rich copper color and full body which delivers exceptional body, balanced by a high hop rate. This beer has great aroma with generous amounts of cascade hops to stimulate all of the senses. This is truly a beer fit for a head of state!

Clear amber/copper with a permanent thin white foamy head. The aroma is a bit dank and floral with a bit of Anaheim peppers and semi roasty earthy caramel malt. The taste is floral and grassy with a big hop bitterness and mild dry earthy malt finish.

Bottle - pours copper with a small head. Has a slight pine aroma and an earthy taste. Somewhat of a malty backbone and a dry finish. Not spectacular but the six pack will do for the weekend.

Wowzers, I finally finally get to try this. It has been on my ‘wants’ list for years. Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a nice clear gold body that supports a light tan head. The mild aroma offers up snippets of spicy hops, a touch of grapefruit and then just a hint of sweet malts. The taste has a nice bitterness that is mostly grapefruit and orange like citrus hops and then to midway and into the finish a sliver of malt sweetened citrus hop flavor comes to the surface to round this out with a touch of balance. This is a pretty darn tasty IPA.

Bottle at Damgoode pies. Pours dark orange with a thin white head. Not much on the nose but a bit of pine that fades real quick. Not much on the tongue. I’ve never been this bored by an IPA.
