16oz can poured into a pint glass. No dates or codes on the can that I can see.

Pours clear coppery amber with a small head. Not a lot of carbonation. Smell is straw, vague old plant smell, some piney bitterness.

Taste is strong, vague bitterness, a little toffee, a little toastiness. Surprisingly, the alcohol seems noticeable.

Mouthfeel is thin and still. Slight gritty, resinous feel. Overall, it's OK.

Rarely do I get a chance to drink a brew just blocks from the Micro Brewery. I'm thinking it enhances the taste if your consuming the beer amongst the culture and environment where it is brewed! Rarely drink double IPA's but if you want the full measure of this one drink it at Gig Harbor! Great Beer!

Dark orangey amber pour in the Affligem chalice. Quite pleasantly sudsy. Very sharp and tangy mouthfeel. Malty and alcohol tasting.

Rather nice first sip. Big thud of hot, sweet malt. Moderately bitter, though it's clearly a frontal hop assault. Some grapefruit peel with mango and tangerine flavors. Firewater on the lips, somewhat acidic, and aromatic.

I like the can. I like the clean, robust malty taste. It's a slash and burn DIPA. From the 16 oz can purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

American double/Imperial IPA
8.4% ABV
80 IBU

APPEARANCE: Poured a nice dark amber color, great thick eggshell colored, dense head. Light lacing.

AROMA: felt the nose on this was a bit muted. Faint pineapple, grapefruit bit of hops. Malty day old bread smell comes through pretty hard.

TASTE: More of an English IPA to me, I believe the can had a British accent when I heard it crack open. Malty, bready some caramel in there. The booziness comes in pretty heavy and hides most of the hop profile.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body and carbonation. Did get some floating sediments that I wasn't super fond of.

OVERALL: Not my go to style of IPA. I like the fact it was in a can, and the color was really striking. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy again.

RATING: 2.5/5 Zombie Heads!
