In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Oddside Ales. It is their El Dankerino West Coast Double IPA. If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into this Double IPA.
It has a clear copper color with a white constant head on this Double IPA. The aroma has a slight grapefruit to tropical fruit notes. The taste has dry bitter front that leads to slight caramel to tropical fruit notes. The aftertaste has a dry grapefruit hop finish. It is a sipping beer.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, this is a great beer. I love the play on words for the name of the beer. There is some aroma notes and tasting notes. The malty backbone is a perfect match with the hops picked. The caramel and tropical fruit notes are a nice blend. This beer might be a sipping beer but I could see some experienced hopheads saying that it is kind of drinkable beer. I do not think I had one bad beer from this craft brewery. This brewery makes good beers and this one lives up to that line. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
