Description 

This DIPA is brewed with a simple grain bill of Two Row, Pale Ale Malt & some Cara-Pils. A late addition of Dextrose is added to the boil to lighten the body and boost the gravity. A tried & true hop combination of Simcoe & Amarillo are showcased in this hop-forward beer. Simcoe provides a unique passionfruitpine flavor & aroma combined with Amarillo’s citrus characteristics will keep you coming back for more. Future Tripping is finished off with a hefty amount of Simcoe & Amarillo in the dry hop. Boasting 100+ IBUs, you will find this beer to be quite balanced and not too bitter as it weighs in at 9.25% ABV.

Measuring in at 9.25% abv and “100+ IBU”, this clear, golden-colored (6 SRM) hop bomb begins with an abundance of resin, pine, mango, and citrus aroma from copious amounts of Simcoe and Amarillo hops.  The flavor showcases a similar hop character with a slightly aggressive, yet still quite delightful, edge.  Light pale and caramel malt flavors lend support to the hops but never obtrude the hop dominance.  The finish is moderately bitter as just enough malt sweetness exists to allow the “100+ IBU” to not be too sharp or harsh.  This is an aggressive Double IPA with a resiny, piney, and citrusy hops character with just a touch of malt as to be not overly sharp.  This is sure to be a joy for every hop head!  Enjoy!
