3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden color with small off-white head. Aroma is full of grass, green tea, resinous and citurs hops. Taste is bitter at first followed by some sweetness with the alchohol noticeable only in the finish. There’s a lot going on here, and the rice makes this different from the crowd of IIPAs. A little dank, but not too dank. Body is medium with moderate cabonation and a fluffy (not oily) dry mouthfeel. A very pleasant surprise on my first trip to Detroit, when finding something by Kuhnhenn on tap was a must. Would gladly try again.

From a 64 oz growler. Pours a clear amber with little lacing or head. Nose is grassy hops, a touch of spice, and some grainy cereal character. Taste is earthy and grassy hops finished by an almost caramel cereal like sweetness. A bit boozy, yet it’s highly drinkable. A little too easy to drink an entire growler of this. Nothing outstanding, but unique enough to make it memorable. Very nice beer.

16.1.2014. Väri vaalean samea. Tuoksussa sitrusta muta liikaa jotain, riisiä? Tunkkaista. Maku on kohtuu suoraviivainen. Hiilihappoja kohtuullisesti, keskitäyteläinen. Maussa on jotain sakea? Jotain makeaa.

Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Clean, toasted golden color with great clarity & a sudsy, soapy bright white head that lasts for a while & clings to the glass all around. Wonderful aroma. Juicy citrus, grapefruit rind, tangerine peel, herbal lemon zest, dank resin, oily pine needs, weedy grass, hints of white pepper, floral notes, & the most mild touch of cracker malt you could ask for. Huge hop resin flavor; oily, moderately dank, & pleasantly bitter at the right times. Pine, florals, grapefruit pith, orange zest, & even some lighter hints of bitter pineapple & some mango... It ventures close to tropical territory but stays on the bitter citric side. Only enough malt to not cave in completely... Faint pale sweetness. One of my favorite things about DRIPA is the lovely dryness & cleanliness of the finish. Fantastic Double IPA, definitely one of the best that’s consistently coming out of Michigan. Can stand up to the costal big-boys for sure.
