COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
All hail the Rich Mans IPA! A bold copper-colored beer with beautiful gold edges, and crowned with a strong white head. The aroma is grassy with a nice orange and malt presence. The mouthfeel is smooth and solid, with malt that backs up the sticky bitterness. The taste is pine, citrus, and a light malt sweetness that all interplays with the alcohol. Hops, hops, hops, and more hops! Occupy a bar stool, the 1% of beers has arrived!

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 29, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Sweet toffee, butter, grassy hops. A cloying crystal bomb with cake and then dirty grassy hop finish. Been finding a lot of these lately. Doesnít really work for me. Too much of the caramel.

A pretty weak IPA, especially by SD standards. It is super sweet with no hop bitterness whatsoever.

Pours a hazy amber color with a fluffy off-white head. Strong citric character with lots of grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon peel. There is a nice touch of pine and some sweet toffee malt. A bit of floral hops in there, too. The flavor is a good blend of sweetness and bitterness. Plenty of pine and grapefruit peel with a very strong citric hop profile and flavor. The bitterness is mostly present on the finish.

Draft at Obriens. Clear copper/amber, with minimal head. Caramel, sweet malts, pine bitterness, and light citrus. Far more malty than I was hoping for. To sweet for it to be a good IIPA IMO.

On tap at Hamiltonís. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. After having so many west coast hop bombs this week I feel like Iím getting desensitized to them. Monkey Paw has provided me with another. The aroma is potent with tons of hops, more pine leaning with pineapple notes. Mouthfeel is not too heavy, just full bodied enough to convey the double IPA message. Plenty of hoppiness is present in the flavor as well with lots of pine, citrus and a long zesty finish.
