COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prodigiously hopped yet nimbly brewed with pilsner malts, Adversus ultimately achieves the improbable: a big, bold IPA made for summertime sipping. A hard-charging blend of Pacific Northwest hops leads the way, loading the nose with notes of stone fruit, pineapple, mango and earthy pine resin. Meanwhile, the use of traditional pilsner malts adds levity and dryness to the palate, allowing for a refreshing texture through the finish. The result is a double IPA that is high on hop aromas, balanced in bitterness and perfect for the long, warm days of summer.

Pale yellow, hazy. Crisp malt aroma, citrus peel. Dry and lean mouthfeel, good crisp malt base, resiny, piney and some citrus zest. Drinkable, excellent.

DiarmaidBHK (5113) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2017
Sampler at Hunger N Thirst. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Lots of pine on the nose and tongue. Finished crisp and clean. Solid effort.

ricke49 (51) - La Pine, Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2017
DIPA without hop ’bite’, neither is it very ’oily’. Adversus is a well-balanced and remarkably smooth drinking brew. Some pineapple mango sweetness is a great summer touch. A Somewhat more prominent malt profile than with a typical double IPA. Excellent sipper.

Draft at Cork City. Mostly clear golden-orange, drippy lace. Mango/tropical aroma. Alcohol and grass notes. Feels and tastes boozy. Okay, but not special.

ChiGuy68 (602) - Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2017
Tasted from a pint can. It poured a slightly hazy golden yellow with a white head. Hop and lemon peal aroma. Smooth well hoped taste with a nicely bitter finish. This is one damn enjoyable beer. Refreshing with a well hid 8.2%.

Poured from 16 fl oz can (canned 06/09/17). Slightly hazy golden yellow with white head. Grapefruit hops, light resin, mild herbally floral character, hint of tropical hops, alcohol hidden. Good, but prefer Fortem.

drfabulous (8096) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 13, 2017
16 ounce can from Lukas Liquors Kansas City. June canning. No way to know because of the box around it. Still, smooth tasting with light hops and malt and some tropical notes. Wonder what it’s like real fresh.
