I like the regular blue hills IPA and the Black Hops but this one is barely palatable. Tasted way overly malty and sweet for an IPA. Strong alcohol flavor, big body, nice color... barely any hops... tasted like a home-brew where maybe the fermenter wasn't sealed and the beer got spoiled.

I keep buying their beers hoping they will get better, now in a can, at least that's cool, no date, but picked up a week ago.

Pours a smaller fizzy head that flashes over quickly but leaves some lacing, hazy dark orange slight chestnut brown color.

Nose isn't too bad, some hops bringing a little earth and pine, mild candied orange peel citrus, a bit of a mossy forest floor earth, a big sweet malty base with little caramel and toasy reddish malts, little candy like too, and hints of booze waft out.

Taste starts with the sweet malt kick, candy like sweet malts, toasty reddish malts, little caramel almost syrup, and some mild warming tingly booze with that. Then hops, again that earthy hop character at first, mossy forest floor but not a ton of that or pine, a mild candied orange peel again, and citrus zest. The hops turn a bit spicy and chewy as it goes, towards the finish the hops turn a little bit of a stale oil character, but mostly bitter spicy chewy hops, as the finish dries it gets quite spicy and chewy and almost astringent bitter, and a bit of a sticky feel lingering.

Mouth is med to a big bigger bod, mild warming tingly booze, decent carb a little on the lighter side though.

Overall not bad, pretty average when it comes to a DIPA as far as hops and malts go, but a decent balance and nice characters, hops are def not my fav, but this beer isn't too bad. Maybe the problem with the beers I've been having is freshness instead of quality, but maybe not. Maybe they turned a new leaf and trying to improve, not quite sure, but I'll try another one next time I'm in the area and see what I think then.
