Beer Profile: Ass Kisser Double IPA

Profiled by Ken Carman

Not a double. More caramelized/malty IPA with some extra alcohol. Someone thought this made it a double? A little Cascade-like nose but just bitter hops to the taste: but specific malt dominates. That “specific” fills the mouth with carmelization. Not a bad quaff, just mislabeled. A high alc. Scotch Ale IPA hybrid perhaps? Carmel up front.

Personally I wouldn’t drink a lot of this. Not bad. Not because it’s out of style. I’m no one’s style Nazi. Just not that interesting.
