Sutter Buttes Franklin Double IPA (7.5% ABV / 100 IBUs): Franklin Double IPA pours a clear golden color with white foam. This beer had a more muted aroma than the Water Tower IPA, but malt and citrus are present. Franklin is medium bodied with mild carbonation. The beer has a malt flavor with hops bitterness that is well-integrated and more powerful than first impression when you take a sip. The middle flavors include citrus and pine resin. Franklin has a dry, bitter finish with a mild peppery spice. Franklin Double IPA is good, but I prefer the Declaration of Water Tower IPA to pursue my hoppy happiness.
