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!

Bottle from Binny’s. Pours a pretty golden orange, healthy white head. Some semi-stale citrus in the nose, sweet honey, pine resin. Quick pine hop attack with a big sweet body, moves to some sweet booze then finishes with a bitter citrus hop. Med body, quite sweet, some booze & average carbonation. Good stuff.

Cloudy orange with plenty of sediment hanging in the liquid. Smells hoppy and slightly creamy. Tastes strongly floral with some citrus peel and orange juice up front, followed by a very smooth, "round" aftertaste. Fizzy palate. Lingering flavors of pine and some caramel. Good. A little safer than I would have expected.

Cloudy orange gold, light tan head. Muted resinous nose, some hay. Some nice honey sweetness as it warms. Sharply bitter upfront, bigger sweetness than a typical double. Pretty big body, fairly upfront alcohol. Not terribly oily, quite a bit of acidity. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cloudy amber with medium yellow white head. Aroma of resin, mango, peach, apricot and grapefruit. Taste is big, bold bitter with a sweet fruit kick to balance it. Smooth, medium to rich body with soft carbonation.
