A few times a year we cut Dan loose to brew whatever he choose. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. A provocative 85 IBUs reverberates cleanly through this Double IPA. True hop saturation from kettle boil to dry hop cellaring dominates this elegant and lustful sensory enchantment. You hold a deceptively seductive Original Gravity of 19.2 Plato, now 9% ABV following the always 100% natural bottle fermentation. Luscious English Maris Otter malt is the essential heart of this voluptuous double IPA. Surrender is inevitable so enjoy now.

Bottle from the brewery.Pours a clear light pale orange.Rich short head,lots of lace. Pungent fresh aroma, bright sharp citrus fruits,spicey-peppery,underlying mild sweetness. Taste is hoppy,fresh,clean malt,drying alcohol finish-a bit hot almost. Lots of strong sharp hops,piney and stingingly peppery.Citrus in the background.Vapory alcohol in finish. I almost wonder if this is too fresh and needs to chill out with some fridge time.Kinda hot and not the MO malt Im familiar with,maybe with time it will show a little more because at this point its nothing other than hops and alcohol not in a bad way though.

jredmond (5330) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle at Paul’s July 2013 tasting. Pours a light hazy body. Aroma is super fresh pine and citrus. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of citric hops, citrus fruits, lots of pine, resin and some floral character. Very light malt base smooths out the finish making this a refreshing, drinkable double IPA.

Pours a mostly clear golden color and topped by a nice thick off-white colored head of foam. The aroma is bursting with citrus fruits and hops atop a backbone of toasted bread malts. The flavor follows suit with the citrus fruit including orange and grapefruit, and balanced out nicely by the toasted malts. The body is nice and full with ample carbonation and hop bitterness that leads to a slight warming finish. As the beer warms up it starts to get a touch boozy, but overall a solid ipa from one of my favorite breweries.

There is so much to like about New Glarus IIPA. It is a lush hop bomb with amazing balance. Pine is most prominent but complexity abounds. Hops are the focus with alcohol and malt adding depth.

Heavy aroma of pine, citrus, and fresh hops. Nice orange gold, with thick white head that stands strong. Nice hoppy pine, with some bitterness in front, balanced well with sweet caramel malt. Finishes with the sweetness of the malt momentarily, then the bitterness from the hops comes in but it is not over powering. Has a nice alcohol hum to it at the end also that warms you up. Not over the top like some double ipa’s.
