COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, “not normal.” Cheers! 100 IBU 11.0%ABV (used to be 9.5%)

Bottle tasting at work. Damn, I’m not even a hophead and this was just wonderful. Beautiful citrus/grapefruit hopped profile play aound the nose as a slightly sweet lactose finishes the taste, obscuring what little bitterness is obtained from the hop additions. Appearance was a bit underwhelming, with a cloudy orange hew with medium white head... but a sub-par appearance does not, a bad beer, make! As a nice little aside, licking my lips after drinking this wonderful brew left a sweet, almost candied, lactose risidual that made me smile. One of the better DIPAs I’ve had in quite a while!

CanIHave4Beers (3322) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 23, 2014
2011 bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a hazy yellow with a decent sized head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is lightly sweet with plenty of grassy and herbal hops. It’s also got fruity elements, most particularly citrus rind.

The flavor is lightlysweet with piety of honey and citrus. The beer is moderately bitter and far boozier than I’d prefer it to be.


Fun, not really my bag, but fun.

Mindwarp (57) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pour’s a nice golden color with a nice head. Citrusy aroma and tastes exactly not like that. More bitter than citrusy and I don’t know what milk sugar taste like so I can’t say it taste like that. Malty, a little grassy. Overall not bad, definitely different but good. Hides the alcohol pretty well.

Tap. Deep golden body with an average, lacing, off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, peach and pine. Sweet flavor that ends up dry bitter and with alcohol. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A great DIPA
