Clemson 55's brews arrived today. Got home from work and was in the mood for an IPA and since I received a IIPA I was in buisness.

Initial pour into glass I noticed what I thought was a Distinct Chill Haze which I could care less about. The beer had a nice frothy head that stood about an inch over the brew.I smelled the glass and got a very pleasent floral aroma, My first taste I thought there was no way it could be a IIPA this beer is very smooth and refreshing with low bitterness Very comparible in aroma to 2 hearted without the bitter aftertaste. I really enjoyed this beer and I will be looking foreward to getting the Recipe Pm'd to me so I can clone it! Job well done clemson this was a great brew.

Note: I am no judge but I do know what tastes good to me.

IIPA

Aroma – Mild. When you see IIPA on the label, you expect to get blown over by the aroma. Not this one. It was nice and balanced. Not a harsh aroma at all. Faint hint of piney hops. Nice malt tones. What I didn’t realized was just how much complexity that unassuming aroma was covering up.

Appearance – Nice pour. Good carbonation. Rich cream colored head. Beer was a medium (almost chocolate tone) brown. Very hazy, but not out of the ordinary for an IIPA. Very nice lacing throughout the session.

Flavor – At first sip I thought…hmmm…maybe an IIPA right after work wasn’t the best idea. The taste was great….but very…well…uh….IIPA(ish). (Maybe I should have worked up to this one…) Well, leave it to the human body to acclimate quickly. No sooner did I set the glass down than I was thinking…”hmmm, let’s have another taste of that…and another…and another…”. This beer tasted fantastic. Once my taste buds were awake, they couldn’t get enough. Rich malty taste and a highly balanced bittering from the hops. The flavoring and aroma hops kind of maintained their distance and didn’t grandstand the beer. I knew I wanted to savor this one so I set the glass down, went in and changed out of work clothes and came back to nurture this beer. I made myself stretch this into a 30 minute beer and every sip was better than the last. As the beer warmed, the richness really came through.

Mouthfeel – Rich and chewy. Great head retention. The carbonation was perfect. No astringency. Satisfying mouthfeel.

Overall Impression – A wonderful beer. Try as I might, there was no way I was going to let that 2nd 12-ouncer sit in the fridge any longer. I had to crack it open and repeat the process. For an IIPA, this was a very “gentle” beer. No obtrusive alcohol warmth, not biting aftertaste from too much hops, and the grain bill was a very nice combination. Very well done.


Now…PM me that recipe.

I'll post the recipe tonight when I get home or after dinner or something. I hope I didnt mislabel calling it a IIPA and cause the wrong expectations. Its pushing 7% ABV and has 9oz of hops counting the dry hopping. Maybe its just a big IPA I dont really know.

+1! I love me some hops(even though they are an endangered species). I'll be stirring this one up soon.

I wouldn't worry about what you labeled it. I know one thing....Its a damn good beer and I think that if Beirmuncher likes it and wants to brew it and yooper wants it. Well I think it could eventually have a cult following around here like Edworts Haus and apfelwein You did a great job.
