Double Haul IPA
(Kettlehouse Brewing Company)

Yet another canned brew from the great state of Montana. Do canning breweries outnumber bottling breweries in Montana yet? It's got to be close. I'm looking forward to diving into this one...

From the Kettlehouse site:

"Double Haul® IPA scores big with our hop-headed friends. Of course, the folks at NABA agreed, awarding it a gold medal at the 2008 brewfest. Brewed with lots of hops and a solid body, Double Haul® IPA is a beer lover’s dream. After a couple of Double Hauls you’ll feel like you’re out with your buddies and it’s FISH ON! for both of you. Cascade hops for flavoring and finish provide a mouthy cascade of hoppiness!"

Here we go...

 

Pour - bright golden with some orange and reddish hues. Nice fluffy head atop this very nice looking brew. Plenty of lacing inside the glass and near perfect carbonation levels. 

 

Aroma - plenty of green goodness from the cascade hops. Some dark sugar aromas as well as pineapple and lemons.

 

Taste - Citrus and pine meet with plenty of malty sweetness backing them up. Some grass and hay notes as well. Not an overly complex IPA, but then again many of them aren't. Plenty of hop flavor and very easy drinking. A solid IPA that is for sure.

 

Overall - a nicely put together West Coast style IPA. Its not over the top hoppy and is nicely balanced. 

 

Would I buy more of it? - certainly. This is definitely a beer worth seeking out to give it a try and as with the others Kettlehouse cans, its a quality brew.

 

Note - the term "Double Haul" refers to a fly fishing casting technique designed to add speed and length to a cast. To learn more about this go HERE!
