Wilmington Brewing Company Lion Cake Double Dry-Hopped Tripe IPA, 10% ABV which I purchased at Pop the Top Craft Beer Shop while I was enjoying the Burial Beer Co Tap Takeover. This big triple IPA is brewed with Lactose sugar, Pale Malt, Wheat, Oats, & Carapils along with Citra & Mosaic hops in the Whirlpool and in the first and second dry-hopping. Lion Cake pours a hazy yellow that looks a bit dark with a two-finger white head. Hold this beer up to your nose and you get a sweet juicy fruit aroma that is soft with a bit of a creamy yet hoppy note. Now take a sip and you get some juicy citrus fruit (orange, grapefruit, and very faint lemon) that has a little creamy sweetness to it with little/low bitterness to it that does grows a little as it passes the back of your mouth and finish slightly bitterer than it starts with some citrus fruits that do carry into the aftertaste with a bit of hoppiness and some strong alcoholic notes with a soft but fuller mouthfeel. The flavor of Wilmington Brewing Company Lion Cake Double Dry-Hopped Tripe IPA is soft and delicious getting an A-, the big nature of Lion Cake (the alcohol) does keep it down just in the slightest bit. If you like big Triple IPAs then Wilmington Brewing Company Lion Cake Double Dry-Hopped Tripe IPA is your beer I recommend it! Please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
