Southern Pines Brewing Company Reverse Nostalga New England DIPA

Picked up Southern Pines Brewing Company Reverse Nostalgia New England DIPA, 9.5% ABV local from Pop the Top Bottle Shop here in Charlotte, NC. This is a New England style Double IPA and New England style IPA have grown in popularity of the last few years. This IPA style uses the hop aroma and flavor without the bracing bitterness. Reverse Nostalgia pours a hazy deep orange color with a two finger deep white rocky head that gives off piney fruity notes with an aroma of grapes, faint pineapple and grapefruit that leads into a flavor of grapes faint pineapple with a bitter grapefruit with very faint hoppy ands strong notes with a nice fruity finish and an aftertaste of similar fruits with a full mouthfeel. Overall this is not a strong taste as it would suggest but it’s up there and it is smoother for double IPA and getting a B- here. It has a strong flavor hitting the back of the mouth and that holds it’s no higher than B-. Would I have this again? Yes but not right after the first one, then your mouth would be wrecked and everything would taste the same. But I would recommend Southern Pines Brewing Company Reverse Nostalgia New England DIPA. It’s was good for a strong DIPA. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
