Description 

Cosmik Debris is a golden, brilliant Double IPA with a relatively dry flavor and assertive hop aroma.  Intense aromas of melon and citrus zest, lead to a soft palate featuring a carefully struck balance between firm bitterness and malt. The beer is brewed using Simcoe, Eureka, Idaho 7, Mosaic, and Cascade hops, which create beautiful notes of starfruit and orange marmalade on the palate.

This beer poured a clear orange color with a thick, white head with a moderate degree of retention. Upon first whiff, I was greeted with a complex aroma that combined fruity esters, deep malt sweetness and citrusy hops. The beer’s flavor profile similarly included citrusy hops up front followed by solid maltiness and a fruity juiciness that encompassed both flavor and mouthfeel -- as did its gentle alcohol warming consistent with the style’s character. Altogether, this was a very good Double IPA whose only drawback was some mild hop astringency in the finish.
