3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Arome hyper gazonnée rappelant le Cannabis. Très résineux, herbacé et sec avec un pilier de maltose solide mais adéquat.

Draft pour. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma has pine, citrus, orange zest. The taste is earthy bitter with just a touch of sweetness. Bigger body and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange beer with a huge head. This is a bit too old bottle so not at it's best. Aroma is a bit sweet hops, berryish, piney, resin. Taste is dry, high co2, bitter, lacking malts, sour, resinous. Dunno, weird. Really bitter finish. Lacks the body for this bitterness, though I think this would have been much better beer a year ago or so :)

Dude. Woah. Forget malts, we don’t need ’Em. Imagine hops in their most purest form distilled into one perfect thing. It’s a sharp and perfect tribute to a great thing. I can’t really put into words how great this beer is. Perfect. The perfect double ipa. Hops out the wazoo, but jot heavy and tiring. Quenchy but still boozy. Spectacular, stunning, perfect. I don’t know what else to say so I’ll stop reviewing it now...

This is one of the best beers in the world. I first heard someone raving about something called "double rice IPA". I thought that sounded absurd and would taste like shit. Then he never stopped talking about it and I had to prove him wrong. So I went to kuhnhen and got it. It?s amazing. I wished I live closer to them so I could drink it more. Since then I happened upon hopcat in Lansing and saw they had it. The choice was obvious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap poured into a sampler. The aroma holds lots of herb and citrus peel. It’s a dry aroma with some bread and a cucao like note. It pours an oily, clear pale with a white, small suds head. A thick to medium ring and fuzzy island are retained an a thin, dense lace is left on the glass. The taste is a balanced medium-high sweet and bitter. The texture is oily with medium full body and light, soft fuzz carbonation. Toasty flavors emerge on the palate along with citrus, spice, and pine. It’s a dry, crisp finish with a citrus, tropical, and pine blend for an aftertaste.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Poured amber/gold with a good amount of white fluffy head. Decent lace. Aroma is subdued citrus hops and grains. Full citrus hop flavor. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple with a different kind of zing that I will attribute to the rice. Medium bodied in the mouth with a crisp, bitter finish. Interesting.

Julie says yikes big iPa. Big double standing for double rice iPa. Yucky. She's burping hops. She gives it a 0.2
