Dogfish Head / Sierra Nevada Rhizing Bines
Rhizing Bines is the latest Life and Limb Collaboration between Dogfish Head and Sierra Nevada. This American IPA uses both east and west coast ingredients including as of yet un-named experimental hops. Head to the DFH website to get the full back story. I am kind of surprised at how delicate the flavors are with this beer, and that is making it very frighteningly easy to drink. I honestly sucked down this 750 ml bottle in no time without even realizing it. The malts are slightly bready with a nice bit of light caramel, which is followed by lots of floral and earthy hops. The bitterness is generally low but it lingers in the finish along with a surprising amount of alcohol at 8% ABV.
