If you’re a fan of juicy, hardly bitter Double IPAs, then 2019 might just be your best beer-drinking year yet! Collective Arts recently launched their DDH (double dry-hopped) IPA series and they’ll release a new DIPA every quarter, each seasoned with a different mix of hops. This one pours with a whipped cream-like cap that adorns the glass and creates intricate lacing with every sip. Aromas of fresh basil, orange Creamsicle and overripe honeydew melon mark the nose. The ale is medium-bodied and creamy with an aftertaste that’s both herbal and fruity without any sticky bitterness. As a devotee of the style, the first release in the series is the best that I’ve tasted this side of the border.
