Lion's Courage Double India Pale Ale

 

Klockow Brewing Company Lion's Courage Double India Pale AleKlockow Brewing Company Lion's Courage Double India Pale Ale (8.8% alcohol by volume) as a moderately intense resiny, minty piney smell moderated by a trace of biscuit. It pours gold with a light haze under a 1/2" cream colored foam cap with good retention. Nicely developed malt flavors with biscuit and shortbread provide a foundation for pleasantly intense, spicy hop bitterness that lingers with light herbal notes with a faint tea like character and flavor and a hint of anise. The body is medium plus and creamy and the carbonation is medium and soft. This is a very luscious, big full bodied beer packed with flavor. The beer's big malt character makes the hop bitterness work. I enjoyed it immensely and rate it 87.
