459. Squatters Hop Rising Double IPA

Squatters Hop RisingThis is another one received in a trade from Utah brewery, Squatters. Being a double IPA I had high hopes as it is my favorite style of beer.

Appearance is a very clear orange with a nice white head. Aroma is mostly floral and pine, I prefer the citrus/tropical aroma. Taste is OK with a little more citrus coming through but it is also fairly bitter. Overall this was a good beer but again not something I would seek out again. 
Pros:

Cons: 
Alcohol Content: 9.0% ABV
Calories: ???
IBU (Bitterness): 75

Brewers Website: Squatters Pubs & Beers
Brewers Description: Big hop, big malt, big beer. One of the most aggressive beers ever released in Utah, Hop Rising a double India Pale Ale, clocks in at 75 IBU’s and 9% alcohol. We use three different malts to create enough flavor to perfectly balance three varieties of hops, then, because we can’t help ourselves, we dry-hop it; resulting in an amazing two pounds of hops per barrel! The combination of robust malty flavors and huge hop bitterness provide a well-balanced beer; a hop lover’s dream.

    My son is an insurance guy who loves beer – so I will comment here. God bless you!
    Discovered Squatter’s Hop Rising about a month ago – it is wonderful – not up on all the rating info but I have finally found a double ipa that I have no issues with! Hope it doesn’t disappear like everything else that I love.
