After drinking the black IPA from Blue Lobster I had to go back to my favorite style – the double IPA. This is the third installment of their Excess is not Rebellion series of double IPAs, this one using only Columbus hops.
This beer could be summed up in one word – dank! Because I like to type I will give you a little more detail. Color is a very nice orange with a small head that left a fair amount of lacing on the glass. Lots of aroma from this beer with citrus and tropical fruits – very pleasant. Taste is surprising for a single hop beer a lot of different things happening. Certainly lots of same citrus, tropical hop flavor but you also get a nice bitterness and the oily resin remnants that I like in my DIPAs.
I liked this one better than the Galaxy edition but probably not quite as well as the original which used a blend of 3 hop varieties; Galaxy, Centennial and Citra. Hopefully Blue Lobster continues to experiment with single hop DIPAs as this was fantastic.
