39. Black Acre Brewing Company - Hop Pun Double IPA
“With healthy additions of five types of hops, this DIPA is bursting with flavor, offering a bright finish and an intense experience.”
Well, now, this one is drinky. I woke up on a garbage scow wearing wing tips and pasties, and I could still taste the bitter finish. It’s clean and bright up front, and then goes bitter and makes you fully aware of its 8.5%-ness. The five additions of hops must be some kind of swing at cutting down the alcohol and the malt bitterness, but none of the hop flavors really stand out for me. And I’m not about to pour a second one. This must be how Dumbledore felt after Harry made him drink the potion in the sixth book.
