A - Nice amber color with a descent off white head. Minimal lacing.
S - Citrus and piney hops with a prevalent malt sweetness.
T - Too sweet and malty for me. Not bad hop flavor, but I certainly prefer my double IPAs less malty. Citrus and pine notes are well balanced.
M - Sticky and medium bodied.
D - Too sweet and malty. I'm definitely looking to moving on.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Amazingly found in the bargain bin of a local liquor store for $1.
Clear amber liquid with a substantial off-white head.
Bracing, hop-laden aroma.
The flavor is more subdued than I expected from a DIPA. The hops definitely dominate but there is backbone of malt here that gives it enough sweetness to not be completely insanely bitter. Lingering hop oilyness on the palate. A little bit of copper. A little bit of wheat bread. Mostly piney hops, especially on the finish.
The bottle says it is 10% ABV but I can't tell it.
Very nice full mouthfeel that sticks around.
I would recommend this for any hop-heads. It might make a good counterpoint to serve with a sweet fruit pie.
