GHOST ISLAND DOUBLE IPA
American Double IPA
2 Row, Caramel, Roasted Barley
Northern Brewer, Cascade, Falconer's Flight, Citra
Dry Hopped with Citra
Dark yellow, almost orange in color. Slightly hazy because of the high amount of hop oil in suspension. The head is light and frothy white and dissipates quickly leaving a nice lacing on the glass.
Strong aromas of tropical fruits, such as tangerines, mango, and papaya due to the hops. Slight maltiness towards the back but everything is dominated by the aroma of the hops.
Strong mango flavors followed by orange flavors carried by a medium maltiness that helps hold the flavors in the mouth longer. The bitterness comes in at the end and while it is on the higher side, it more balances out the flavors of the malt and hops ather than competes with them.
Medium body with a medium high level of carbonation which helps drive the aroma compounds into the nose. Finishes with a lingering flavor of the hops and some bitterness which helps cleanse the palate.
