Born Colorado Brewing Born ________ Double Dry-Hopped NEIPA – American Double / Imperial IPA at 8.5% ABV | 10 IBU (C$4.05 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 24-Jan-2020, reviewed 28-Jan-2020)

Appearance: opaque pale gold with one fat finger of rocky white head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, citrus, mild dank pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, low bitter. (9/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, short duration clean finish. (4/5)

Hopped with Ella & Mosaic, giving lovely tropical and citrus aromas. A bit more emphasis there would would be nice but it’s pretty excellent as-is. It really shines on the tongue, with a very nice balance of fruit flavours and restrained sweetness, but the true kicker is the super sneaky 8.5% ABV, that makes no appearance whatsoever until a gradual warming halfway through the pint. Very nice indeed. (17/20)

8.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
