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.

arminjewell (6751) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pour on tap, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some biscuit into a bit of orange, some jam, hints of pine into a bit of grass and spice. Taste is a mix of grass, spice, earth into caramel, toffee, some orange, grapefruit, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet. Not bad.

bigda83 (310) - Jamestown, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Pours a hazy orange collor with a sudsy white head. Aroma was nice with citrus hops and some pine. Taste was orange, light grapefruit, bread, and hints of sweet malts. Solid double IPA and better than I was expecting.

joejames (232) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours hazy amber, quick 1 finger head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma of spruce tips and citrus. Taste is pretty balanced with just enough sweetness from the malt to tame the bitterness of the hop bomb. Medium bodied, light carbonation and slightly oily mouth feel. Finishes medium bitter with notes of grapefruit, pine, caramel, hop resin and slight alcohol. I like it!

Thanks Nuf for the six.. resin-citrus balance in the aroma with a little caramel. Flavor a little thin and metallic, a little grapefruit and honey. light amber color with moderate white head. drying on the tongue.
