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.

Arome hyper gazonnée rappelant le Cannabis. Très résineux, herbacé et sec avec un pilier de maltose solide mais adéquat.

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.
