COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Serum is our version of a Double(Imperial) India Pale Ale. It is aggressively hopped at several stages of the brewing process including a dry hopping that takes place little by little over a 2 week period. With an OG close to 19Plato, this beer is big and hoppy, yet has a strong malt backbone that keeps the huge hop bitterness from being overbearing. Available in VERY limited quantities and only at our pub locations.

Cloudy orange pour, off white head. Vegetal notes, caramel malt, sweet hops, citrus aroma. Flavor is very malty with a distinct citrus background and some of the vegetal weirdness.

Via trade with Acole34. The aroma is caramel, honey, earth, cooked vegetables. The appearance is hazy orange, white head. The flavor is malt forward, caramel, followed up by resiny and metallic hops. The body is medium to medium/thick. The finish is a sharp hop bittering, pine, resin, metal. A little strange, but good, solid IIPA. Thanks, Angus.

On tap at BWI airport waiting for my flight! Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head, the aroma is of slight floral with some citrus hops mixed in, the flavor is pretty balanced with malt and hops, probably one of the better choices if stranded in BWI!

22 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is cider with one finger bubbly off-white head. Nose is big malt and hops with hints of caramel and honey. Taste is all malt and hop with a caramel and bitter hop finish. This is a tasty DIPA from DuClaw that is polished on every side, yet shining none ... a brew that is good, but not great!

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2010
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, pine, citrus, Earth, light toasting, light caramel, and malt. Poured orange in color with a small, creamy, rocky, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Clear. Sparking. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of hops, malt, light pine, light caramel, and some citrus. Medium body. Slightly oily, then slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, lightly bitter, hops, malt, and caramel finish. Not very bitter for a double IPA. Too sweet, really. 9%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Bomber. Pours golden with a hint of rust. Thin head and lace. Nose of juniper berry, peach, pineapple and malt. Taste of caramel, bread, tangerine with a hint of booze. Slightly sweet up front; slightly bitter on the finish. Overall, a well balanced beer that exceeds expectations.
