A nice light amber pour with a 1 inch creamy head. No question about the hops in this one. Right after opening the bottle, the aroma hit the room. I've been using this Sam Adams Beer glass that is perfect for picking up all the traits in a beer. The hoppiness of this Double IPA came through loud and clear. There was not a lot of malt/barley in this one as compared to some other Double IPAs I have had.
The hop bitterness came through with each sip. Not over the top, but just enough to hit all the bitter parts of the tongue.
The finish was as nice as the start, which I love in any beverage.
I can always pick up so many different flavors/spices/etc in the wines that I taste, but with beers, it is taking me a bit longer.
If anything, I found a little citrus in this one, perhaps just a hint of grapefruit...
A perfect addition to a nice night around a camp fire during the summer!
