From Bridge Brewing out of North Vancouver comes their “Double Down Double IPA” a small pilot batch. The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of tropical fruits, pineapple, juicy hops and a floral finish. The flavour is of tropical fruits and bitterness up front with very juicy pineapple, hops bitterness, resin, pine and alcohol. The alcohol content comes in at 7.7% with an IBU of 85. Even with a fairly low alcohol content for a double IPA it does ramp up as it warms. This was a pretty darn good double IPA and would be a great candidate for up-scaling to a full sized brew.
