L to R – Labyrinth Within, Crimson Lotus and Worlds Away…yum.
Whoa…delish DIPA with a nose of tropical fruit great hop flavors with mild bitterness and soft mouth-feel. 8.4% ABV from the fine folks from Oxnard’s Casa Agria Specialty Ales.
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. Though not really getting some of the characteristics I would expect from Nelson (Sauvin) in both boil and dry hopping, I’m enjoying it more as I continue to sip. Whoa… it’s gone! Who stole my beer?
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. Melon less pronounced as it warmed, and couldn’t identify another smell I was getting….she smelled cauliflower, which I’m not getting at all. Flavor […]
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.
I haven’t had this DIPA in quite a while, and I’m not sure why. Maybe cuz I keep ordering their BooKoo. This is delicious. From Vista’s own Mother Earth Brew Co.
An awesome enough Double IPA on it’s own, but when combined with a plastic animal assortment pack, it’s simply awesome.
