Sprecher Double IPA

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Sam Adam's perfect pint glass.

A) Nice looking amber brew with a full finger of slightly off white head. Decent retention and some lacing.

S) Perhaps age has muted the aroma a bit here. I can't locate a bottling date, but from what I gather this is a summer release. I just pick up a shit-load of soggy grain and a little citrus.

T) Sadly, I must report this follows the nose. Quite grassy and a little bitter on the backend. Not a pleasant aftertaste. If I'm looking for some bread in this shit sandwich, I'd have to say the alcohol is well hidden.

M) Medium bodied and a bit over carbonated for my liking. Not very fun to drink from a mouthfeel standpoint.

O) My journey through the leftover Christmas beer continues... This was an epic fail. Sprecher has some good beers, but this ain't one of them. Sorry, but I cannot recommend this beer.

No freshness date, and no indication that it is a summer seasonal.

Pours hazed/clouded amber with a thin, wispy, slowly fading cover. Minimal lacing sticks.

The smell is of citrus, caramel and some black pepper.

The taste is of pine/resin with some tropical fruit. It has a firm caramel backing. Black pepper spicing is in the warm finish.

The feel is pretty smooth despite noticeable alcohol heat.

While hops are noticeable, it has a boozy caramel backing. It is a decent double IPA overall.

I'll try it again in the summer, when it is fresh, but freshness of the hops didn't seem to be a problem with this one.
