A provocative 85 IBUs reverberates cleanly through this Double IPA. True hop saturation from kettle boil to dry hop cellaring dominates this elegant and lustful sensory enchantment. You hold a deceptively seductive Original Gravity of 19.2 Plato, now 9% ABV following the always 100%natural bottle fermentation. Luscious English Maris Otter malt is the essential heart of this voluptuous double IPA. Surrender is inevitable so enjoy now.

    Pours translucent caramel with a fair beige head. Aroma gives resiny hops, tangy citrus and tropical fruit with a stonefruit hint, fresh malt. Flavor presents tangy citrus, stone and tropical fruit plus resiny hops and fresh malt. Texture yields fair body and fizz. Scream for it.

    Apparently now apart of the Thumbprint Series. Pours an almost neon yellow with a 2 finger head that seems to take its time. Decent amount of carbonation in this one. Aroma is hops, hops and more hops. taste is very sweet and hoppy with a metallic backgrounds that hits after a few seconds. Fairly dry because of the hops. Small hit of alcohol but not enough to where you would be bothered. Slight lemon notes to it. Finishes off dry and lemony. Very nice IIPA.

    Tropical fruit and candied grapefruit abound. Pretty bitter, but not overly so with some earthiness and pine and lots of sweetness. Full bodied. Now I'm confused. I thought unplugged beers were a thing of the past, and thumbprint was in the now, but this was fresh. Thanks to Heybeerman for the trade. I think this is the best iPa or pale I've had from them.

    From Q Dawg. Copper amber pour with a tight and tall white head leaving ample lacing. Tropical and citrus hops aroma, pleasant and strong, earthy and sweet malts follow, then more hops - slightly floral. Taste is big, peachy, grapefruits, very slight pine, some floral, lots of hops bitter but nicely offset from the English malts. Very very very good DIPA. What else would one expect from New Glarus?

    Nice copper pour with a thick white head. Aroma is citrusy hops with a malty background. Flavor is in your face huge citrus hops,but mellowed with the malts. Fantastic stuff! I need more of this!
