3.7/5 rDev -9.3%
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. My ratings on DIPAs are above average, largely because I've had so many fresh. No exception here. Deep golden with brown highlights. Lots of lace. No exceptional aroma, but hey a disinfected bleached glass. Good full hop dose.

3.93/5 rDev -3.7%
Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a cloudy copper color and a modest head that still sheets the glass with lacing
Smell: Caramel malt with floral grapefruit
Taste: Big caramel flavor up front, but the bitter grapefruit jumps in to dominate by mid palate; after the swallow, the bitterness lingers but there is plenty of sticky sweetness in the finish
Mouthfeel: Full bodied and sticky, with prickly carbonation
Drinkability: A bit too sticky for me but still a compelling and flavorful DIPA

A: Poured a nice golden hue with a nice foamy head. The head hung around nicely, and left sheets of lace.
S: Nice big floral aroma. Tons of citrus with a touch of cut grass. There was a sweetness underlying that made this extra nice.
T: Wow big on flavor. Tons and I mean tons of grapefruit taste. There was a nice malty sweet backbone that held this beer together nicely. It finished with a little bite from the hops. I really liked this beer.
M: Nice and thick like maple syrup.
D: Very drinkable for a 9 ABV brew.
Overall: The best beer I have ever had from Titanic. I keep coming back for the wings, but their beers are not half bad either. This beer had tons of grapefruit flavor which masked the fact that it weighs in at over 9% ABV. The only downer on this is Titanic had a one glass limit on this beer. I have no idea why because I would have stayed and watched Monday Night Football if they had let me keep drinking this bad boy.

I had this on tap yesterday and I am going from notes.
It is an unfiltered beer, but still looks filtered. I was an amber copper color with some clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Great layered lacing as the beer was drank too.
It smelled malty and hoppy. Caramel and bready malts followed by lots of citrus aromas. The bartender says as the beer sits in the conditioning tank, it gets more malty and hoppy. Anyways, it smelled good.
As for taste, this beer was tasty. Alcohol is well hidden and this beer was tasty and delicious.
This beer was silky smooth, medium carbonated, full bodied, and easy to drink.
I was happy to have enjoyed this fresh and tasty DIPA. Wish they did growlers or sold some beers to go.

A - Cloudy but brilliant reddish-gold, lots of head, and tight thin lacing on every sip. A good looking DIPA.
S - Plenty of pleasant hops; otherwise nothing too special, but nothing off either.
T - Great tasting DIPA. Plenty hoppy, though probably tends more toward the "East Coast DIPA" sub-style in that there's a big malt backing behind those hops.
F - I dig this feel, it has that sticky resin hop feel with good carbonation.
Drinkability very good for a DIPA. This is easily the Titanic's best, most dialed-in seasonal.

This is really a fantastically brewed double IPA. It has a classic IPA richness in appearance with a deep orange that seperates golden with the dim lights of the Titanic Brewpub. The smell is crisp and doesn't do the beer justice because when you taste it it's loaded with a great initial bitterness, heavy on the citrus and most specifically grapefruit, and finishes with a little bit of a bite and a great mouthfeel. Like all Titanic beers there's a minimal head but great lacing as you chug *i mean sip* this beer down. Really a go to IPA if you're ever in the Gables area, a treat.
