The 9th beer in R&B Brewing’s Mount Pleasant series is the Double IPA. The beer pours from the bomber bottle a clear copper colour with two fingers of off white head. The aromas from this beer are strong and consist of heavy notes of resin, tropical fruit, candy, and caramel. Notes of citrus are present but somewhat hidden by the other much stronger aromas. In the mouth is flavour of caramel and pine resin along with a significant sweetness. Among these strong flavours citrus and biscuit notes are also present. This double IPA has plenty of strong malt tones but they are disguised by the hop aromas and flaovurs, leaving a slightly cloying mouthfeel and lasting bitterness.
