Ogden Double IPA

The last 12 oz can from a six pack bought in Wyoming.

This feels like a throwback beer.  Very reminiscent of on older style, west coast DIPA with plenty of fruit notes finishing out a clean, big ‘ole DIPA. It’s refreshing in that sense.

Lovely orange body sits underneath a sticky, white head. Lace has that tacky feel to it. Nice.

Nose brings all of the tropical elements and a touch of dank character.

Incredibly drinkable and light for the style, and for the ABV. In short, it’s well made. This is the kind of beer that will get few plaudits in the context of the modern scene, but those of us that know, know.

Hop bitterness is controlled but present. Finish gives a gentle metallic edge. Lingers perfectly. Malts and hops compete in a civilized manner.

Cracking example of the (throwback) style that I don’t want every day, but when I do I’d be happy to turn to this again and again. If you want this style, this is a fine option.
