Tonight's beer is a Hop Rising Double India Pale Ale from Squatters Brewery. It's a twelve ounce bottle, which shows 9% ABV and 75 IBUs.
This IPA pours with a medium to thicker head. It has a nice golden honey color, with maybe just a little reddish/brown shading. The aroma is what I usually expect from a higher alcohol IPA, with some hops and citrus, and a bit of sharpness to the aroma. There is a nice hoppiness and a little citrus, and some malt. A bit of spiciness on the tongue. The aftertaste is a little bitter and definitely spicy. I usually like these higher alcohol IPAs (like Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA and Ska Decadent Imperial IPA), and this one is very nice and along those lines.
