Rhinelander Boatswain Double IPA Review

Rhinelander Boatswain Double IPA

Double IPA [Type 30] 8.4% ABV

This was a left-over from Strong Beer month at Beer Club. I am not familiar with Rhinelander, so I was uncertain what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. As an IPA curmudgeon, I tend to be skeptical of all things IPA. In this case, I found a nice beer with good flavor. More beers like this could make me a fan of IPAs.

As you can see in the picture, this is a pretty dark IPA. The hops aren't actually that strong either, I think Lumberyard's IPA has more IBUs than this double IPA. The hops that are present are pleasant fruity ones. On the whole, a pretty sweet beer. IPAs are often sweet underneath the bitterness. Since this one lacks bitterness, the sweetness comes to the fore.
