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!

jcwattsrugger (11076) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2008
12oz bottle-pours a dissipating foamy light tan head and amber color. Aroma is medium malt/caramel/toffee, pine/resin. Taste is medium malt/caramel/toffee, pine/resin/herbal hops. Not quite my taste. Became less enjoyable as I progressed. Thanks Russ Powell. Reading the previous 2 raters comments, and knowing them to be good Americans, I must guess that I had a bottle with some issues. Rating stands, but would like to rerate.

clear copper, wispy beige head, streaks of lace, strong earthy hop aroma obscures a hint of sweet caramel malt, lots of hop flavor, very dry with only a trace of sweetness, long bitter finish, starts to grow on you after a while

Thanks to ericandersnavy for this one. Pours slightly hazy orangey amber with a two finger foamy beige head. Aromas of sweet caramel and some floral/citric hop. Medium plus body with really foamy carbonation. Flavor is caramel with a fair amount of not too bitter hop. Pretty flavorful. The not too bitter gets much more so as the beer drains away. Like it.
