Picked up a bomber at a Temecula 76 gas station (wish gas stations back home carried craft...and I mean real craft). Halfway through the bottle and I'm having a hard time believing this is a Double IPA! For one thing, the hops are nonexistent except a tad in the aftertaste....however, overall this is a really good ale. Maybe a Double Pale??? I'd get this again though, enjoyed it!

On tap at Barley and Hops

A- Dark amber color with a finger of of white head. Great lacing.

S- Pale malt and citrus hops.

T- Bitter hops up front. Dank, and more hempy than citrusy. Some orange notes. Sweet caramel malt in the middle. Finish is bitter with some alcohol presence.

M- Feel is thick and chewy with a medium level of carbonation.

O- A tasty, but somewhat predictable DIPA. Good, but there are so many other locals which I would reach for first.

Interesting DIPA. The thing is with this beer, it doesn't feel like a DIPA at all. Weak head on the beer, and despite an ABV of 9.7, mouth feel is very light as well as the nose. I liked the flavor: lots of citrus notes, especially lemon and bitter orange. I definitely didn't expect what i got with this beer. I'm glad i tried it, but probably wouldn't get it a second time. Interesting note: at the market where i picked this up, a tag advertised a RateBeer score of 97. Pretty drastic difference from beer advocate.....BA's rating is 77 "just OK" with user average reflecting the same. I knew there was a reason i preferred BA to RateBeer.
