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%)

shared a bottle that I picked up at the brewery with my buddy in il. Poured from the bottle a very hazy orange color that you can’t see through with a very thin white head. Smell is hoppy and sweet with some creamy smell. The taste is super hoppy (love it) but finishes sweet, a nice well balanced beer. As we drank and the beer get closer to room temp the hops mellowed and it finished very easy.

Very good. Near clear golden pour with white head. Aroma is overripe sweet fruit. Taste is grapefruit, light caramel and bitter hops. Good stuff.

Pouts slightly hazy gold with thick tight head. Aroma is fruity with some dank hops and caramel malt. Flavor is pineapple some pine and creamy malt. Lots of booze and smoothness that makes it not a top shelf hop beast...but still pretty good.

Orange pour with white head. Citrus, biscuity malts, honey and moderately bitter. Smooth for high ABV.

Pours a slight hazy with about quarter inch white creamy head. Head disappears but leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet but crisp aroma. Sweet up front and a lingering pithy bitterness

Awesome! Tropical fruit and pineapple in the nose and tatse. Gives way to a thick bittersweet finish.

Bomber from the brewpub shop. Poured into a snifter. A cloudy deep orange color with a frothy white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Lots of juicy citrus and pine. Creamy mouthfeel. Very well balanced and smooth. Nice finish. I suppose I need to go back to Indiana again.

Opaque apricot color with a dense white head. Aroma is tangerine and candied orange peel. Taste is the same, and cloyingly sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

garroch (75) - New York, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Poured from a bottle that a mule dropped off behind a dumpster. Orange-copper with mild haze, thick persistent lacey head. Malts, resin and stone fruit on the nose. Taste is orange, pith, peach and plum, some almond esters. Booze is present but wouldn't suggest this high an ABV. Fine carbonation blooms over time. Medium to heavy body; thick and chewy and a bit oily. Finish is tangerine, malts, and leathery bitterness. Really complex, classic American style IPA. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
