Kuhnhenn DRIPA (Double Rice IPA)

Thanks to kp for sharing this one.
Flat looking pour which lacks any hed to speak of and there is no retention or lace to speak of.
Very light colored pour with a light, golden orange note.
The nose is by FAR the most interesting element to this brew. As others noted at the tasting, there was a VERY distinct, rich and bright tangerine nose to this beer. Very pronounced almost to the point of me wodering if there was an orange essence added!
After the nose we just get another American double IPA. Not resionus and piney like a west coast version but just very bitter and somewhat unbalanced. Bitterness is not very well balanced and I end up havinenough after a fairly conservative volume of the beer.
Some will love it (I liked the nose), partly because of the hugeness of the style, partly because of the brewer’s name, but to me it’s a bit of an also ran – ho hum.
