From Mike Hess Brewing in San Diego California comes their “Habitus Double IPA”. The beer pours a copper colour with a tan head. The aroma consists of tropical fruit, citrus, rye spice, herbal hops with a floral finish. The flavour is of rye spice, pine, resin, citrus, tropical fruit, orange peel, bready malts, earth and bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 8% with an IBU of 100. I always enjoy a good Rye IPA and this one does not disappoint at all.
Commercial Description: Habitus, winner of the 2014 World Beer Cup℠ in the Rye category, is a spicy, crisp, and extremely drinkable double IPA. We use loads of Sterling and Chinook hops in the kettle and hopback (and even more during the dry hop) for intense pine aromatics accentuated by a rye and 2-row malt base for a truly great IPA experience.
