Peticolas Brewing Company
Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial IPA
Limited (brewed once).
The intent is to exhibit the fresh and bright character of the hops. We dry hopped it with over a pound of hops per barrel of beer. It's gold in color and the floral ester aroma is high. The hop bitterness is high, but not at all harsh. The hop flavor is high, fresh, and lively. Yet with all of our beers, it's all about balance and this one is no exception. The malt character is fairly high and provides a tremendously full mouthfeel. Finally, the alcohol in this beer is intentionally present (and delicious).

I'm excited to be the first on here to review Michael's newest brew.
A: Golden-amber, it has a soft head, about a finger in width, that produces some extra frothiness. Lacing clumps to the glass with character.
S: Sharp, pungent floral notes, including an herbal singe, is present. You can tell already that the alcohol is high, but it's not overwhelming. The aroma approaches barleywine qualities, which is something I like in DIPAs or IIPAs.
T: The pound of hops definitely says, "Hi!" here--the alcohol has a nice bite and heft to it, and the malt subtly kicks in on the aftertaste. It's actually one of the "breadiest" DIPAs I've experienced, and I like the unique flavor.
M: Strong and bold at the beginning with a soft and balanced finish, this leaves a characteristic piney citrus twang on the tongue atop the malt foundation. Like any good DIPA, it's fairly robust in its quasi-creamy texture.
O: Like all of Michael's beers, this is ridiculously drinkable for such an walloper, hence the name. This actually may supplant the Velvet as my favorite Peticolas drink, and that's saying something.
