Moody Ales Sundew Double IPA – American Double / Imperial IPA at 7.5% ABV (C$6.35 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 19-Apr-2023, acquired 4-Jul-2023, reviewed 9-Jul-2023)
Appearance: clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky pale ivory head, excellent retention and well-defined lacing. (5/5) Aroma: melon, tropical fruit, caramel, citrus, light pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, mildly warming slightly sticky finish with a mild lingering astringency. (3/5)
Brewer notes indicate Galaxy, Strata, and Rakau hops, as well as Huell Melon, maybe as a dry hop? I’m certainly getting the melon out in front, so that tracks. In terms of flavour, it’s not bad, but I’m getting a little lingering astringency in the finish that I’m not enjoying. This is pretty as hell, no question, but speaking as an ugly sumbitch I’ll prioritize personality over looks any day of the week… (14/20)
This will be my 5,602nd unique Untappd check-in.
