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 a clear light gold with white head and decent lacing. Sweet aromas, honey and fruity. Very sweet - - grapefruit, honey, lemon, strawberry. Highly carbonated, very dry. An odd beer.

355ml bottle. Its a gusher, and it fucking sucks, tons of autolyzed yeast character, dirt, not oxidized. Fucking shitty.

zoucrew102 (1236) - - JAN 17, 2016
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 (2999) - 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.
