Double Retro tasting notes
Double Retro, is an IPA brewed with Cascade, Colombus and Chinook hops. It has a lot of hoppy bitterness, with hints of tropical fruits and some herbal notes. Taste is pretty bitter, powerful and with some sweetness. A powerful and hoppy IPA!
Modern IPA's are decidedly hoppy and bitter, with strong hoppy and floral aromas, specially from American hops such as Citrus and Mosaic. Some versions are dry-hopped to get an even more intense aroma. Its color ranges from medium-gold to amber and even to dark brown and black in the case of Black IPA's. The body is medium-light and the ABV is not very high, in the range of 5 to 7,5% ABV. The English styles have a more sweet character derived of the malts used (giving them a caramel, bread, and toast touch).
