Popping the cap revealed a bit of a gusher in the 22 oz. bomber, but when poured, the carbonation was reasonably in check and the head was about three finger thick. The body was very cloudy, burnt umber, and quite opaque when held up to the light, which was a very unusual trait for the style. The aroma was like raw pine resin and very nose singeing, which is the way I like my Double IPAs. The taste was bitter up front with a metallic tinge, surprised with the intense caramel malts evident as a very hefty backbone, and displayed a long earthy finish. The beer felt thicker than average in the mouth with a creaminess imparted by the yeast. I picked this up at Green's in Columbia, SC, during a recent visit, and it did not disappoint.
