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 IPAís flavor pro-file. Made with American long grain rice, it is quite difficult to make but the rice con-tributes to this beerís crisp aftertaste.

Backlogged rating: Golden hue with some head. The beer profile is mango, pineapple, resin, pine, grainy and slight caramel. Lots of biscuity and fruity notes. Lively and aggressive mouthfeel, slight booze. Overall solid brew but nothing all that memorable.

Dude. Woah. Forget malts, we donít need íEm. Imagine hops in their most purest form distilled into one perfect thing. Itís a sharp and perfect tribute to a great thing. I canít 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 donít know what else to say so Iíll 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.

On tap at Zubaty Pes, Prague. Pours clear golden with white head. Good lacing. Great citrus fruity aroma. Fruity flavor with light bitterness. Unusually balanced for DIPA.

ARH (563) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2014
On tap poured into a sampler. The aroma holds lots of herb and citrus peel. Itís 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. Itís 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.

ClubGonzo (4237) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2014
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy light orange body with a small white head. Nose is peaches, white chewing gum, sweet grains and hints of resin, pumpkin pie and clove. Taste is red berries, honey, soapy hops, white sugar and hints of resin and melon. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. A bit strange, but fair enough.
