This is one of my favorite Double IPA's. it has a smoothe head with an absolute flavorful finish. a bit on the dark side for an IPA but thats what is great about this beer. A different turn for an IPA. I thought it went great with a steak and potatoe dinner. Not to heavy and the word light is not an option for this brew.

Deep coppery and clear with decent off white head retention, fading to a ring with faint film.

Nose is an interplay of citric and piney hops with sweet caramel and malt. It carries the alcohol well. It is bitter and not packed with residual sugar--doesnt feel too thick or syrupy. Hops flavor is spicy and earthy, along with pine, but the balance is a little off. Some quaffs seem more like a hop-forward pale ale or restrained american ipa.

Enjoying it, though, and worth a try.

Bottle purchased in California, and brought back to Sydney to share with @LaitueGonflable and @tobeerornottobe.

Pours a slightly deeper than golden gold colour, with a touch of copper to it. Head is a frothy, inconsistent film that forms some large bubbles in places and a misty nothingness elsewhere. Body is pretty firm and pleasant, and leaves streaks of static carbonation as it's tilted. Looks good.

Nose is hoppy, but in a generic way: clear slightly vegetative or oily pine characters, above a solid cushion of sweet maltiness. It's fragrant, but it doesn't really offer anything above the ordinary.

Taste is a little flat, but it's actually pleasantly balanced. Mild tangy hops above a clean malt presence. It forms a slightly biscuity base, while the hops (while still generic) provide a nice cleansing and slightly herbal bitterness on the back. Feel is slightly thick, partially because of the build up of hops on the back.

Overall, this is a pretty generic IPA, but it has a cleanness and a nice balance to it. Let's just say it does "generic IPA" really very well.

A middle of the road mediore dipa, at best. Too many malts and no real hop influence. A nice drinking experience, but as far as all the characteristics I would hope for the style: not much there. I could do without it, as you can see by the numbers on this one.

Deep amber color with about 1 finger of white head. Pretty good lacing. Sweet toffee and malt nose. Lots of caramel, touch of earthy hop.

Tons of malt, sweet toffee and dark fruits up front with just a touch of earthy bitterness. Lingering sweetness. Feels like a Double IPA without any thought and not enough hops. Full mouthfeel, semi-syrup like on the finish. Balance isn't there and it tastes tastes like homebrew. Bleh, glad I didnt bring this into my shop.
