Description 

PARTICLES, an 8.3% Double Dry Hopped Double IPA with Citra, Simcoe, and Topaz! Rocking a similar hop profile to Definitive Ale (our signature IPA) but with extra horsepower, this hop-saturated beer tastes and smells like ripe fruit orchards, kiwi peels, and lemon sorbet!

Particles by Definitive Brewing Co. was judged as a BJCP Style 22A, Double IPA.

I cracked the can open, and the aroma took me back to the fruit section of the Mazatlán city market redolent with rich tropical fruit aromas weaving together supported by a mild, light grain, neutral malt background. It is hazy amber gold – not cloudy or murky – under a robust off-white cap with good retention. This New England IPA on steroids delivers rich tropical fruit flavors with a dash of stone fruit and citrus. The malt flavors serve the hops offering a light graininess but no toasty or sugary sweet flavors to get in the way. The beer feels good – smooth, medium body and medium-plus carbonation and a soft alcohol that provides a gentle, gradual warming. The beer is not too acidic, and, while big and satisfying, is still very drinkable and is a beer you will want to keep around for after work or a quiet evening at home.
