Driftwood Brewery – Twenty Pounder Double IPA Review
The Twenty Pounder is back for another battle from Victoria’s Driftwood Brewery. This beer enters the glass with a single finger of head topping a rich, amber coloured ale. The smell is of creamy hop and a distinct floral sweetness. As expected, the hop bitterness hits the palate hard but is balanced with a floral, citrus flavour. The smoothness almost resembles and imperial style IPA. The beer has a slight booziness to it which could be expected with the 9% ABV rating. The after notes are filled with hop bitterness and a touch of grapefruit flavour. In a nutshell this is a strong, intense and hoppy ale. If you like an IPA that packs a punch give the Twenty Pounder a try.
