Bought a 12 Fl Oz bottle of this from Fong's Pizza in Des Moines, IA for $6. Poured from the Orange/White "Stamp" labeled bottle into a 16oz Pint Glass. Had no freshness date to be found on the bottle.
Aroma- Sweetness, tangerine, and huge hops are three characteristics that come out strong in this nose.
Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that dies fairly quick. Has a hazy orange body and leaves good suds behind.
Flavor- Strong hops and complexed bitter tastes are both present. Fruit adds a ton of complexity to this as well. High bitterness and everything a 2x IPA should be.
Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, High Carbonation, Sweet, and very strong with hops.
Overall Impression- 4's all across the board on this one. I recommend this one as a great Double IPA for its complexity, strength, and fruit included. Haven't seen this one in the MO market because of the "Small Batch" program? Enjoy if you can!
