Steelhead Double India Pale Ale

mad_river_steelhead_double_india_pale_ale

Steelhead Double IPA from Mad River Brewing in California is a nice rendition of an American DIPA.   It’s heavy on the citrus in front, with a citrus and floral nose, and a citrus heavy middle of lemon and grapefruit, fading into a malt heavy honey finish.  It’s a heavy-bodied ale, as you’d expect from a double IPA, and a fairly big beer at 8.6%.  Very nice, but nothing especially notable here.

I give it a 3.8 out of 5.
