We made two new beers at the same time, from the same mash. First, DrEvil, which is a double IPA at 8.1% abv and ~107 IBU. We then made Minime, a small IPA at 3.5% abv and ~30 IBU.

Growler from brewery. Lightly cloudy gold. Only produced head after vigorous pour. Real low Co2.
Sweet nose of tropical fruit, malt and resin. Taste is much the same as the nose. Sweet up front turning into a pine bitterness. It doesnít have an in your face, slap your mouth bitterness. However, it gets progressively more hoppy the more you consume. Pretty good. †

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared with AirForceHops in a 2Litre Growler straight from the brewery today. Enjoyed at fridge temp in a Stella glass.
A - darker gold appearance. Perfect clarity. No head at all with a slght bit of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S - Trying my best to pick out the hop profiles. Columbus and Centennial. Slight hint of Amarillo. Thatís the best I have on my limited experience. Iím most certainly wrong about that one though.
T - Very nice. Up front pine resin and some grapefruit cheese. Bark sort of taste like spent pine bark. Pretty interesting. Loving the columbus hops coming through on the taste buds. Resinous finish but the IBUs are a bit too extreme for me.
M - 50% carbonation. medium body. barky finish.
O - This is nice. We have 2 litres of this. Gonna drink it down!
