A piney, resinous and malty 8% DIPA from Fort Collins, CO’s Odell Brewing. The maltly base has an underlying sweetness giving it characteristics similar to a barleywine, and English barleywine where hop bitterness is more subdued.
…at home; and who doesn’t want some fun, mandatory or not. The beer, a nice 9.3% double IPA from the fine folks at Hess Brewings. Piney and citrusy nose, and the flavor doesn’t disappoint. Yum.
An 8% double IPA from Port Brewing. Piney hop nose. Medium body with lingering bitterness. Yeah, this will work.

Another Stone double IPA, this one made with Loral and Dr. Rudi’s hops and clocking in at 8.9% ABV. I got a strong nose of melon, sweet malts, alcohol and resinous hops.

An 8.5% ABV double India Pale Ale from the fine folks at Pizza Port Brewing Company.
Amplified Ale Works 9.1% ABV double India Pale Ale. Drinking at the source.

An awesome enough Double IPA on it’s own, but when combined with a plastic animal assortment pack, it’s simply awesome.
The wife picked this little gem up at the local grocery store and I’m glad she did. I’ve always liked Drake’s beers, and this one is no exception. It’s an Imperial IPA (though at 9.75% ABV, we would only consider that a DIPA here in San Diego), with a modest 90 IBUs and a deep […]
10.5% and very tasty.
