Gandhi-Bot Double IPA (12 oz.)
(New England Brewing Company)


It's baaaaaack!!!!

It's back! It's back! It's back! Gandhi-Bot Double IPA is back in 12 oz. cans with that same old massive hop flavor. No longer packaged in the 16 oz. cans with the stickered label, these new cans look great and contain the same great beer. New look, same great taste! 

 

From the New England Brewing Co. site:

 

"Gandhi-Bot is an intensely hopped Double India Pale Ale brewed with a blend of three varieties of American hops. 85 IBUs, this beer is brewed for those of us who need an aromatic and flavorfully hopped beer.”


Here we go...

 

Pour - light amber or dark golden in color. Thick resiny, sticky foamy head on top that sticks inside the glass like honey on a bear's nose. Looks delicious and the smell that comes from that pour is heavenly.

 

Aroma - oh my goodness. The hop gods have truly blessed the contents of this can. Big, sticky green gobs of hop power has been given to this beer. Piney to the max with plenty of grapefruit sour/sweetness as well as some tropical fruit aromas. I can't help but think West Coast but hell this stuff is from right here in New England! Every ounce of aromatic hop potential has been captured and displayed beautifully, I like to think the can had something to do with that! 

 

Taste - one big mouthful and I can tell we've got a winner on our hands. This is hopped up like the best of them but so well balanced and almost deceivingly smooth. Tons of hop flower power, tastes almost wet hopped a bit, with some extreme citrus and pine as well as a bit of that danky resiny flavor that comes from all those hop oils. Its a little dry in the finish but that goes well with the crispness that this puts on your tongue. I feel assaulted in a good way. 

 

Overall - quality of this second batch is outstanding and right on par with the first batch. I was going to rewrite my review but as I drank this beer it read like a script. I am truly impressed yet again!

 

Would I buy more of it? - absolutely. Keep it coming!

 

Note - New England Brewing ordered old tequila barrels with which they aged some Gandhi-Bot. Tequila barrel-aged Gandhi-Bot! Holy sh*t! I need to get some!
