Ghandi Bot Double IPA

bot8.8% ABV. Gandhi-Bot is an intensely hopped Double India Pale Ale from the New England Brewing Co. in Woodbridge, Connecticut brewed with a blend of three varieties of American Hops. 85 ibu’s this beer is brewed for those of us who need an aromatic and flavorful hopped beer. New England Brewing Co. does not distribute out of Connecticut so landing several cans of Ghandi Bot was a real treat for me especially it being a highly rated beer. Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange color with a frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick lasting ring. Sweet citrus hop aroma with plenty of earthy notes and a subtle malt presence. There’s some grassy pine needle and dank hop oils but the tropical/citrus fruits are most prominent in the nose. Lots of mango, grapefruit and citrus rind along with subtle biscuit in the flavors. Medium bodied with a complex, flavorful hop profile that is nicely balanced by a sweet malt backbone. Bitter and sweet notes play off of each other with hints of dry and bitter pine countered by notes of grapefruit and orange. The malt backbone adds sweetness with notes of caramel, toffee and biscuit without getting in the way of the hops. Overall, a well-balanced brew and very flavorful with a well-masked ABV making it dangerously drinkable.
