Smiling Samoyed Double Trouble IIPA

Style
Double IPA
ABV
8.0%

The Smiling Samoyed brewing team have experimented with many styles over the years, at one point even having a chilli beer in their core range, a legacy of the previous owners of the brewery. But never has a double IPA graced their tap list, until now. Double Trouble IIPA was brewed for the 2019 Adelaide Beer and BBQ Festival and spawned from head brewer Simon’s love for a good IPA, the thinking going something like: "What’s better than a regular IPA, I know... a double."

Weighing in at exactly 8 percent ABV, Double Trouble is loaded with the three Cs – Centennial, Citra and Cascade, balanced with ale malt, some crystal and wheat, and pours a translucent, deep orange colour with a persistent solid white fluffy head. It's a blend of sweet, bready, biscuity malts combined with stone and citrus fruit; more specifically apricot and orange mingling together and taking on a slightly perfume like quality on the nose. On the palate, the initial sweetness is balanced by a sizeable but not overpowering bitterness, albeit with the finish remaining a tad on the sweet side.
