A Note on This Beer
In the Battle of the Hopmasters at the GABF Alpha King Challenge, Melvin Brewing brought their A-game and took home top honors two years in a row. So if you call yourself a hophead, you need to get a taste of 2x4 Double IPA, one of their most lauded brews with a 4.17 on Untappd, a 4.33 on BeerAdvocate, and a 4.13 on Tavour!
Aromas of dank pineapple and herbal aromas assail your senses before you tumble into its nectarous magnitude of fruit. Peaches, ripe oranges, and pithy grapefruit pummel your palate like a 2x4 made of fruit. A hint of toffee-like malts and piney-citrus bitter appear in each sip before coming to a clean finish -- making this 10% ABV brew insanely crushable.
Pine, citrus, AND tropical fruit? Typical Melvin -- and 2x4 epitomizes their obsession with loud and brashy flavors.
