Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.60% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
An Imperial or 'Double' India Pale Ale with characteristically intense yet greatly balanced hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. It is deep golden-light amber/copper in color, although the use of the huge amounts of hops may cause a degree of appropriate hop haze. Alcohol strength is high but balanced by the hops and malt profile.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Slightly hazy amber, good head.

Smell: Piney, citrus, caramel.

Taste: Balanced, lots of caramel sweetness, then some interesting fruity hop flavor and bitterness in the finish.

Overall: Even with what I think is a slightly old can, this was a pretty impressive beer. The aroma probably suffered the most with age, but also may have been a little more balanced in taste. I'll have to keep an eye out for the next shipment.

Serving type: can

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy, dark copper color with a small, white head that leaves bits of lacing.

Smells of bright citrus notes and some pine.

Tastes of big hop notes with a solid malt backbone. Hops lead off with notes of grapefruit, pine, and a bit of tropical fruit. Malts come in and add a good dose of caramel sweetness. Fairly balanced overall. Ends with more hops adding some earthy spiciness.

Mouthfeel is full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid DIPA.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours a clear dark copper with a one-finger foamy off-white head. Lots of heavy sticky lacing.

S - Lots of piney hops with a light amount of caramel malts and orange.

T - Follows the aroma. Lots of piney resinous hops balanced with sweet caramel malts. There is a noticeable alcohol burn in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Very crisp mouthfeel with a sticky dry finish.

O - This is a decent DIPA. Definetly for fans of piney/resinous DIPAs.
