Castle Danger Double Crossing IPA

This 9.1% ABV India Pale Ale is from the Castle Danger Brewery of Two Harbors, Minnesota. It was originally brewed as their second anniversary celebration beer in 2013. It has now become a spring seasonal offering from them.

The beer pours a light amber, dark apricot in color. There is an inch of white foamy head. The aroma is very ripe tropical fruits, citrus and apricot. The taste is very rich and ripe tropical fruits, lush, nearly overripe, sweet, but with tartness. The hops shine, but there is enough malt to hold it all up in balance. The beer drinks quite smooth, a bit spicy, with a moderate bitterness that would be more but for the sweetness in the beer. This is very good.
