Melvin: Asterisk Can 9% [355ml]
They say "Take an India Pale Ale and feed it steroids, ergo the term Double IPA. Although open to the same interpretation as its sister styles, you should expect something robust, malty, alcoholic and with a hop profile that might rip your tongue out. The Imperial usage comes from Russian Imperial stout, a style of strong stout originally brewed in England for the Russian Imperial Court of the late 1700s; though Double IPA is often the preferred name. You can thank west coast American brewers for this somewhat reactionary style."
We say "We bring you Melvin's latest IPA offering as part of our Cold Chain Programme, so you can drink this DIPA like you're enjoying it straight from Melvin's taproom. Sweet, juicy and tangy pineapple hits the tongue first followed by waves of grapefruit juice and pithiness. There are those signature Melvin sticky resinous hop flavours that feel like their sticking to your gums. This is a DIPA you wont want to miss out on with its creamy bread malt base and intense hop flavour."
