The second IPA is Gandhi-Bot which is brewed by New England Brewing Company (see my other NEBC review).
Gandhi-Bot is a heavy hitter as far as IPA's go . . . it's an Imperial style double IPA. It packs quite a wallup in both flavor and alcohol content (8.8% ABV)
Gandhi-bot pours an amber color. The full, long-lasting head grabs the glass. Layer after layer of lacing appears sip after sip. It looked like a strip mine excavation in my beer glass.
The aroma is OMG hoppy with the flavor to back it up. My first reaction to the first taste of this beer was "WOW!" and then "wow!". Then I settled back and very much enjoyed this brew.
The very piney, very grapefruity, slightly sweet flavor was incredibly well balanced and smooth. The intense of flavors . . . not for the light weight IPA drinker . . . finish with a lingering hoppy bitterness that begs for another sip. And then another.
A seriously good IPA. NEBC has out-done themselves with this one and I'll be keeping a few on hand for an IPA emergency.
I really, really like this one! Grab yourself a pack and prepare to be wowed!
