St.Ambroise 'Double IPA' @ 8.0% , served from 6pack of 341 ml bottles purchased for $14.50

A-pour is a light gold from the bottle to a clear gold in the glass with a big frothy off-white head leaving a streaky lace along the pint

S-smelley double IPA , lot's of hops

T-dissapointing at first because of the dry bitterness that lingers on the palate thru out

MF-not the best carbonation , feels full bodied , dryness lingers on the palate

Ov-dissapointing Dbl IPA

Bottle: Poured a clear medium amber color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of green hoppy notes with nice floral hops aroma. Taste is also dominated by nice green floral hops with a medium sweet caramelized malt backbone. Body is about average with good carbonation. I was expecting a lot worse based on previous ratings and comments but it is actually quite well balanced with an enjoyable level of hops.

A: A golden yellow that just slightly borders on orange. One finger of very creamy looking white head. Excellent retention. Thick rings of lacing indicate when each sip was taken.

S: Hops. Definitely of the west coast variety. Chinook.

T: Once again hops are definitely the most present thing, which is almost a redundant statement given the fact that its a DIPA. I get a signifcant portion of pine, not overly pungent like pine sol, but a pleasing pine. Citrus fruit is also there. The malt backbone of the beer is just that, a backbone. It doesn't really stand out but more provides a framework. I also detect some kind of buttery/butterscotch like flavors. Most likely due to diacetly perhaps from a improper fermentation. Its slight but more apparent as the beer warms.

M: Nicely bodied but still fairly dry and drinkable. It could be very easy to drink this beer quickly. Alcohol is barely noticeable (although likely covered by hops).

O: I thought this beer was great. I will most likely be picking some up in the future and could envision myself drinking it frequently. A decent bit better then the IPA from them, although I think i'll probably revisit that one as well.
