This beer looks great in the glass but the aroma does not have the normal hop notes that i expect from a double IPA.
This beer is HOT! The 10% ABV is present in every part of the taste. Reasonably bitter with some malt presence. My impression is that this is more like an imperial Amber with some extra hops.
And did I mention the hot alcohol tones! That really made this beer almost undrinkable. And certainly not enjoyable.
Save your money and buy 2 bottles of Hop Stoopid or your other favorite double IPA.
