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