Squatters Hop Rising Double IPA
Brewed by: Salt Lake Brewing Company / Squatters Pub
Location: Salt Lake City Utah
A.B.V. (Alcohol By Volume) 9%
Flavor: The combination of robust malty flavors and huge hop bitterness provide a well-balanced beer
Aroma: A massive blast of hops along with some serious maltiness. Hints of Grapefruit and caramel malt on the nose.
Pairs well with: very rich food such as aged Gorgozola. Try it with some carrot cake.
Beer notes: Double India Pale Ales (Double IPA's) are very strong, very hoppy style of pale beer. Double IPA's typically have alcohol above 7% by volume and 60+ IBU's.
First brewed on the west coast by Vinnie Cilurzo in 1994, when he accidently added 50% too much malt to his mash tun, then corrected the mistake by adding 100% more hops - and a Double IPA style was born.
