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.

Pours orange with a small white head and some lace. Subtle malt aroma. Sweet taste mild bitterness, fruity, caramel. light body sticky finish, not a typical double and far from a palate wrecker.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Caramel and bready malt aroma with light notes of floral and citrus hops. Pours cloudy copper colored with a thick tan head with excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with sweet caramel and bready malt flavors. Finishes smooth with light floral hop bitterness and some citrus hop. Good, but not a lot of hop flavor to truly call it an IPA.

Bottle. Hazy dark golden full off white head. Aroma of citrus and floral. Medium-high sweet taste. Finishes with just a light hop bitterness and feels refreshing. Decent double ipa overall.

Art (2703) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2015 Bottle from exchange. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Aromas of candied orange peel, caramel, some pine. Taste is more bitterness than I like but not as over the top as I thought. Slightly melony. Medium body.

Drink this beer with a fork. Nice thick brew. Enjoyed from glass bottle while hanging Christmas lights. After a few, be careful on the ladder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours clear orange, minimal head or lacing. Aroma is perfume, a bit medicinal, candy? Odd. Flavor is really sweet, tangerine perhaps, lots of backing perfume, medium bitter. Medium body, flat as a board. Sticky sweet. Ewww.

Dark copper color with small off-white head and a little messy lacing. Aroma and flavor have strong bitter piney hops mixed with amber malts. A little boozy and chemical like. Okay

hman43 (799) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2015
It pours a clear, golden color. It has aromas of floral, pine, citrus, and hints of malt. It is very hoppy with high citrus and floral flavoring. It is moderately bitter on the way down.

Nephilium (1593) - Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Caramel aroma, with pine and earthy notes. Pours a clear amber with a full white head. Caramel beginning, moves onto pine and earthy notes which fade into a lingering bitter finish. Slightly slick mouthfeel, with a full body. A very good IIPA, especially at the price.

Pours a clear rust orange. A sweet grapefruit and pine aroma. A fruity malt, citrus hops, and caramel taste. A sweet taste with little bitter hops.
