Cerebral Brewing DDH Rare Trait Double IPA Review

A double-dry-hopped, double IPA version of Cerebral's original Rare Trait IPA, DDH Double Rare Trait is grassy, herbal, citrusy, and tropical, all the way from the first sniff to the last sip. What's great about this beer is that it doubles down on the hops (Citra, El Dorado and Mosaic) dankness and juiciness without going overboard in either directions. It leans into dankness without falling into hop burn territory; and dives into the juice pool without sinking too deep into the sweet smoothie end. I knew the moment I tasted this beer, I'd want it again; and after I had it again, I wanted it even more. I still want it.
