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.

Tap at BWI, courtesy of steptin - thanks! Cloudy deep golden brown, tan head, massive lacing. Aroma of tall grass and straw. Taste is wet grass, citrus/lime. Good balance. Not overly exciting, but one of this brewery’s better offerings.

Oakes (13931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2003
Brown-tinged orange. Bursting citric hops (centennial?) evoke wood, grapefruit and lemon. Fat, chewy flavours simultaneously coat your tongue with chocolate malts and citric hops. Smooth...with caramel overtones. A little drippy in terms of hopping, which is the only real complaint. Otherwise quite well-made.

argo0 (12501) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2003
(RBSG2003): Clear copper with minimal off-white head. Aroma is sweet and sticky, really hoppy -- more barleywinish than IPA. Taste is grapefruit hoppy, some herbal hoppy too, and not enough malts for balance. Quite full-bodied.
