#Beersaturday - Double IPL Beer Review

B43673DB-68FA-4A6F-BC29-F300DEE86374.jpeg

Shorts brewery out of Michigan brews amazing beers so anytime I see them I usually buy it. This double IPL is a style I don’t normally gravitate to, but I was sure glad I did!

Appearance
This beer has a classic lager presentation. Loads of carbonation streaming though a nice draw colored beer. It has a thick white medium packed head that left tons of lacing in my fancy ass Shorts glass.

Aroma
The aroma is simple with some dank citrus and grain notes. When I think about it more closely the only thing that really stood out is how clean the smell is. Not like cleaner, but just the basics: grain, water, and hops.

Taste
Again the taste can be described as clean with forward hop bitterness and sweet malty alcohol. Being a double it packed that alcoholic punch I like. It taste great and gives you a nice buzz.

Mouthfeel
Thin and smooth with a decent carbonation that keeps everything light and bubbly.

Untapped Rating
I was surprised to how few of people have tried this beer on untapped. I think I got lucky finding a rarer beer. I gave it a 4/5!

Sounds pretty good. I’m not a hops flavor guy, so I don’t gravitate towards that style beer. But sounds a little different.👍🍺

I'm more of a stout guy, but this hit the spot. It's a lager with a little bit more hops which is fine by me.

Looks pretty but if it is a double IPA I doubt I would care for it too much! I finally got to try the Hershey's Yuengling the other day. A co-worker gave me a couple of bottles and it was pretty fantastic. I also got to visit the Brew Dog brewery down near Columbus, OH the other weekend. Elvis Juice on tap is something pretty special!

Yeah knowing you this is not something you would like. I love brew dogs I'm pretty jealous!

It is totally worth the trip down there! If you haven't been to Columbus there is a ton of good breweries down there. The owners of Wolf's Ridge live down the road from my in-laws.

I like the look of this one, my drinks of choice are generally Guinness, IPA or red wine
