12oz. bottled 3/14/12.
Brilliantly clear, deep gold. Small head dissipates quickly. Spots of lacing on the glass.
Lots of Citra aroma, and the kind I don't really like. Grassy and borderline onion-like. Some fruit in there.
Plenty of IBUs and hop flavor, but the malt overcompensates. In fact, this beer is just too sweet and syrupy. Plenty of resinous and spicy hop flavor, but I want it to shine through even more. Alcohol is well-hidden, and the beer remains drinkable despite the sweetness. Good carbonation and weight.
Too sweet and malty. Not a good Double IPA in my book.
