An okay double ipa. Seems kind of pine and mildly salty, but then that annoying hairspray thing comes into play, which is just not what I am interested in. After that, there really isn't much that can redeem things. Not even the flashy shnazzy label. (250 characters)

On tap at the brewpub where the ABV was listed as 8.6%.

Pours clear, dark amber with a very fine looking, durable head and plenty of lacing

Aroma: lemon, orange and piney hops with a biscuit background.

The flavor is about as hoppy as average for style. A bit more boozy than it should be. Moderately-high bitterness. (328 characters)

Big Vic Imperial IPA 6pk bottles 10.99(OH)

Pours a nice amber red color. About two fingers of peach white head that gives way to nice lacing. A frothy half a finger head lingers on top.

The aroma is that of an IPA, a nice grapefruit,peach and pineapple aroma upfront. a nice lemon smell with a light piney surrounding.

The taste follows the nose, a nice citrus flavor, slight peaches and pineapples, followed by a bitter piney bite.

mouth feel is so-so. medium bodied beer, that is pleasant to the palate. Good carbonation, good bitterness toward the end. however it's lacking a certain quality feeling.

Overall this brew is a decent IPA. An imperial/Double it is not. It may be 8.6% ABV, however it lacks a real quality feel and taste. For a imperial/Double IPA i will stick with chillwave. For an IPA i will stick with Commodore Perry. Not knocking this IPA, as it is from my home state. But it leaves room for serious improvement. On behalf of Ohio, Elevator brewery get to work! (989 characters)
