A: Copper colour with quite of bit of a head. It appears to be mildly carbonated like most American IPAs.
S: Malty aroma, that smells of pine with a slight hint of fruits.
T: What a complex beer. This is my first double IPA, and it starts off with a lot of malts. It doesn't quite make sense, with a double IPA, but it works really well. After the piney/malty flavour the hops rush onto your tongue. The hop flavour in this beer is simply addicting.
M: There is a bit of a bite with the carbonation, but after that it has a thick smooth feel in the mouth.
D: I'm not sure how many I could drink of these, simply because I'd get a bit drunk with the high alcohol content. Beautifully hoppy.
I'm going to have to search for more Double IPAs, this is might become one of my favourite styles.
Serving Type: Bottle in an English pint glass.
Serving type: bottle
