Leapbeer Review #89 Amnesiac Double IPA by Phillips

Phillips calls this the bigger & meaner cousin of the hop circle IPA. I’m more inclined to call it the bad ass older brother with a motorcycle and greased out hair that only a few people understand. This is another bold IPA for the leapbeer blog, and thats a good thing. As I have gone on at length before, I’m a hophead. I love me some citric centennial (or is it cascade I can’t figure it out) hops in my beers. Well in the appropriate beers that is, not say … imperial red ales (*cough double dragon cough*).

This beer pours to a gorgeous golden transparent with a healthy head on top. The smell of citrus is right there with you the whole way. Only a touch of malt flavour in the sip and then its all hoppy glory. This beer is well carbinated, and leaves a delicate lacing on the glass. This is a strong IPA (8.5% ABV) but it drinks like a 6. So be careful. Don’t go all hoppysocks on us and get yourself into trouble.

Hoppy, bold and delicious.

  1. “So be careful. Don’t go all hoppysocks on us and get yourself into trouble.”
    Too funny!
    Amnesiac -This one sounds like a “killer” brew. I like the way you describe it.

    Cheers!
