Review: Kilter Secret Promise Double IPA

Kilter Brewing has been open for a few months now and I finally made the visit to the brewery around two months ago. While I was at the brewery I picked up a couple cans of their Secret Promise Double IPA, which should have 100% been reviewed like two months ago but life gets in the way, you know?

A juicy and divine Double IPA brewed with Golden Promise malt and double dry-hopped with luscious Vic Secret. 8.2% ABV

Appearance: Murky orange juice body with a moderate amount of white-beige head on top that diminishes slightly, leaving behind a spider web of a lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Sweet, tropical, notes of pineapple, orange and lemon. Quite a leafy-forward hop profile, lots of yeast, juicy! A bit of a Five Alive-kind of vibe to it.

Taste: Lots of leafy hop presence to it right from the beginning, followed by your typical Kiltery juiciness to it - lots of orange, pineapple and lemon. A bit of an oaty presence to it. Tad creamy mouthfeel and a yeasty aftertaste at the end. 

Overall Thoughts: Good amount of sweetness in this beer, followed by a moderate amount of heaviness from the yeast. Quite juicy/tropical but not as aggressive as some of Kilter beers. It's a bit boozy but doesn't really creep up until midway through the beer. Love the label! Don't mind the glass, it's not a dirty glass, it's just that farm water sucks.
