COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Rice India Pale Ale. This gold colored West Coast style Double India Pale Ale has an intense hop nose, with aromas mainly of citrus. The high hop character dominates this IPA’s flavor pro-file. Made with American long grain rice, it is quite difficult to make but the rice con-tributes to this beer’s crisp aftertaste.

ClarkVV (5369) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Draught at the newer location, 5/5/16.
Strong clarity in this pale golden beer with ample carbonation and a strong brass tint. White head atop is medium-sized and wispy.
Yellow fruits kick off the nose with pineapple in the lead. Nectarine, apricot and such growing lightly resinous with softly prickly pine and white grapefruit taking over towards the finish. All the while, light honey and plentiful cracker-like malts sit in the background. Notes of cucumber, dill, black pepper and green, grassy vegetation are quite apparent. Alcohol pretty well-concealed, though there’s some minor heat on the end.
Similar to their other beers, there’s good attenuation, but some sticky/syrup character leftover mimicking rich honey. The carbonation is moderate and fairly engaging and bitterness isn’t obnoxious. Lots of cracker/biscuit and whitebread-like malts show through, almost outdoing the hop flavors on the finish. Some peach, pineapple, pine and grapefruit linger, with a strong overarching grassy element. Eh. It’s not a bad beer or anything, but I guess I’ve just been ruined/jaded by living in New England.

ineedbeer (1663) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 30, 2016
Poured from a 64oz growler. Aroma is fairly malty with some toasted bread, caramel, and cracker notes. Medium hop notes with a strong dank character to it. Onions, garlic and some lighter citrus and pine resin. Pours a fairly clear, copper amber color with medium sized, slightly off white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers thicker on this edges. Light lacing and medium length legs. Flavor has a medium light malt note with some toasted bread, caramel and dark cracker notes. High amounts of bitterness. Lots of dank onion hop notes but a bit more grapefruit and pine resin than in the aroma. Some light alcohol spice in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, I am not a fan. I’m not sure if my tastes have changed or if the beer has changed. It’s way maltier and the hop profile is way more dank than I remember.
