Crossroads Russian Imperial IPA

Yeah, I just made up a new beer. "Crossroads" Russian Imperial IPA. It's half DFH Hellhound and half NC Old Rasputin. I can't even describe how complex it is. Ok, I'll try: smooth up front, the malts converge and invite you to the crossroads. Roasty and malty... Ok, let's go. Then a confluence of bitterness churns atop your taste buds, with the grapefruity citrus bitterness converging with the cocoa and coffee to create a whole new experience. Lured in, you take another sip. Not a good idea.

Perhaps the individual RIS and 2xImp IPA are more enjoyable by themselves. NC Old Rasputin is one of the best RISs (if not one of the best beers) in the world, and the Hellhound from DFH is known as a double Imperial IPA, which speaks volumes... Drink one then the other. Or... Mix them together and tempt fate.
