Danny’s Home is not a beer to be taken lightly. If intimidating acronyms like TDH weren’t enough, the 12 percent ABV lurking withing this exceptionally hopped up IIPA might warn the drinker to take this one slow – a not-so-simple feat given the surprising drinkability of such an enormous beer...
Pouring a striking burnt hazy orange hue, Danny’s Home immediately emits lip-smacking notes of guava and ripened stonefruit. On sipping, a dense body coats the mouth with a slightly sticky, moderately resinous hop character that includes notes of pine and grapefruit, bolstered over again by a lingering, tacky bitterness. A citrus driven finish is reminiscent of pulpy orange juice, cut with sweet but zippy mango nectar, while the higher than average ABV is noticeable yet not overbearing.
Overall, Danny’s Home is a particularly fruity affair from the Rocky Ridge crew that kicks off what will undoubtably be another big year of brewing from the off-grid Jindong brewers.
