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!

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.

This is not as strong as a typical IPA but for my first foray into IPA beerdom it was a welcome brew. I really enjoyed the copper tone and the thick hoppy head that stays well.

To me this is a great non mass market IPA. Has a good flavor, aroma and color. Lots of people rate this IPA low but I think most are use to mass market IPAs

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 On tap at The Flying Saucer in Little Rock. Pours a clear, deeper golden colored body with an inch thick, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is slightly spicy earth and grapefruits with a bit of a stale orange and a light grass alongside a medium sweet bready caramel. A slight onion note from the hops with a few florals in there too. Flavor is medium-light sweet caramel with a slight breadiness and a good amount of grassy, slightly earthy grapefruit hops. Some orange notes as well and no onion thankfully. Finishes pretty dry with a few resins, florals, and a medium bitterness with some grapefruit and a lightly spiced earthiness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. Fairly dry and bitter with some grapefruit earth and resins alongside a bready caramel malt backing. The aroma gave off a bit of a weird note, but the flavor was better. Not bad.
