Other Half Brewing Company and The Answer Brew Pub collaborated on a second basketball-themed double IPA.  Double Dribble is a double dry-hopped Imperial India Pale Ale, and the local beer is double dry-hopped with Citra, Lemon Drop, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops.  The double ipa clocks in at 7.8% alcohol by volume.


Glassware: Dank & Juicy 16oz Glassware

The Dank & Juicy craft beer glass is the first design in our Dank & Juicy series of beer pint glasses. We designed the beer glassware to showcase the characteristics of hops and yeast.

Dank is a common word used to describe the aroma and flavor characteristics of certain types of hops, while juicy is commonly referred to as the mouthfeel and flavor profile of certain New England yeast strains.

Appearance:

Double Dribble Imperial IPA pours a hazy and viscous mango nectar color with a slim, frothy, white head. The head retention was a little bit better on Double Dribble than Other Half and The Answer's previous collaboration ipa, Raining Threes double ipa. 


Nose:

Double Dribble Imperial IPA displays dominant fleshy citrus and tropical fruit characteristics with herbal and grassy undertones. The citrus, tropical, and herbal hop aromatics complement each other very nicely. The aroma of the beer expresses fresh mandarin orange, grapefruit, and citrus zest qualities that led into subtle spruce and pine aromas.


Palate:

The double IPA explodes with tropical mango, pineapple, and passionfruit flavors, which convince your olfactory senses that you are consuming a fresh tropical smoothie. The flavor profile becomes more complex as the beer coats your palate. Toward the end of the sensory experience, the IPA transforms into a botanical garden of spruce and pine. The bitterness is sharp but diminishes rather quickly, and the mouthfeel was smooth, light, and delicate.


Final Thoughts:

We enjoyed Double Dribble slightly more than Raining Threes. The sensory experience was more enjoyable for us. The flavor profile of Double Dribble was more diverse than their other dry-hopped collaboration double ipa, Raining Threes.
