DogFish Head & Sierra Nevada – Life and Limb Rhizing Bines – Double IPA

DogFish Head & Sierra Nevada Life & Limb Rhizing Bines

 

Appearance: Clear golden tangerine, thick foamy lasting head with big ringed lacing.

Aroma: Mandarin orange, spruce, pepper, orange peel and tupentine.

Taste: Sweet orange, juniper, grapefruit, caramel with a mild bitter and peppery finish.

Mouthfeel: Viscous consistency, tingly carbonation, medium body and an average wet finish.

Big Malt and sweet profiles balance with spice and bite. There is 8% ABV in this bad boy but you wouldn’t know it without reading beforehand. Outstanding collaboration! I feel the need to mention the sweetness is a bit of a shock during the first sip, but it plays perfectly into the beer the deeper you go. I only wish I had a Spiegelau IPA glass to enjoy it with.
