!2 ozer bottled on 2-21-14
Pours a white, quarter-inch head, body is a translucent orange color. Lots of bubbles rising through out. Lacing was above average and head was thin but hung around awhile.
Smells of a tropical fruit cup, lots of mango, pineapple, guava, and lime. Bits of piney resin meld with some caramel malts. Not much in the alcohol area is detected.
First taste is definitely more malt forward than the aroma leads on. It has characteristics of a heavily hopped barley wine, a thick malt backbone with hits of pine and lime. Wish the hops would pack more of a punch, as they did in the nose. Alcohol is present but for almost 9% it drinks smooth.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. Wish head was more present, it seems to have died a bit. Richness and bitterness of beer leaves a slight coating on the roof of the mouth while carbonation stings the tongue.
Overall this was a solid Double Ipa but I was expecting more from it considering its rating/awards. Malts covered up the bitterness too much and the head was abit on the weak side. Would drink it again but wouldn't add it to my top 10 IPA list
