The Brü Revü – Austin Beerworks Heavy Machinery Double IPA

Heavy Machinery is Austin Beerworks seasonal IPA series where they will be brewing and canning a different IPA throughout the year in 16 oz. cans.  The first one was supposed to be a Black IPA but due to the cans arriving late, and us thirsty Austinites drinking it up too quickly the Double IPA became the first to arrive in cans.  Now the packaging is phenomenal: I don’t usually pay too much attention to the container, but this packaging is truly inspired.  Outstanding packaging for what is an outstanding beer.  The beer poured a hazy amber orange with a full head and an explosion of hops in the aroma.  Loads of dank resinous hops with a some citrus as well which is right in my wheelhouse.  The taste followed the aroma with loads of dank resinous and citrus hops with a good dose of floral bitterness on the back end.  The hops were floating in a sweet honey malt body that was surprisingly full and gave a nice heft to this brew.  What an outstanding beer from Austin Beerworks, they really hit it out of the park on this one.  I can still taste the dank bitter hops on my palate now.  mmmmm. This Double IPA will be a mainstay in my fridge while it lasts and I eagerly anticipate the next IPA in the lineup.
