Tonight’s beer is one from a local brewery that I still haven’t gotten to. Let’s see how this one was.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Reserved for the most infernal of palates, Double Dementia is a sinful collection of classic west coast hops blended with malts the color of hellfire. Just the right amount of bitter, followed by an explosion of juicy citrus flavor blended with bright floral aromas. Drinking easier than any Imperial IPA should, this beer is evil… that’s what we love about it.”
Random: The beer store by my job has a great selection of local beers.
The beer poured with a two finger, ecru colored head. It went away slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was clear and in between yellow and orange. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose didn’t bring much to the table. It had some grapefruit along with grass. The taste was a lot better. Initially, I picked up a lot of citrus, specifically grapefruit flesh and zest. It then went into pine and grass and quickly transitioned into a slight honey sweetness along with malt. The body was on the lighter side of the style with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick and sticky finish with pine. I paid $4 a can for this, which came to $.25 per ounce. This was a decent beer, but was on the more expensive side, as local beers tend to be. I enjoyed it though, and would have it again.
