4.43/5 rDev +11.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Glass Used: Nonic pint
Appearance: This DIPA poured a viscous, cloudy maple syrup color with a rich looking off-white head which was two and a half fingers thick. Nice look.
Smell: Resinous with loads of citrus and mango along with yeast, dank and banana. This is a great smelling DIPA. A little bit of booze singes the nose at the end but not enough to make this un-enjoyable.
Taste: The hops explode the moment you take a sip. The citrus and tropical fruits carryover very, very well along with the yeasty characteristics. Damn good.
Mouthfeel: Thick, sticky, coating; Well carbonated with a medium mouthfeel.
Overall: This DIPA packs in all the flavors I enjoy in this style. I would not hesitate to grab this if I had the opportunity.. A+

I've not had a ton of beer from iowa, but I've liked most of what I've been able to try. this is a fun one, courtesy of a new friend. a double ipa of sorts, hopped and dry hopped to oblivion, supposedly with some belgian yeast strain, but i don't get much of its influence, and whatever its done to this beer is overshadowed by its enormous hop flavors. nice hazy redwood color, red mulch sort of shade, with a short but lasting fizzy white head. it smells like citrusy hops, tons of alpha acids and pine sap, its very much the west cost bomb, but the grain bill is different. the taste confirms a little something darker in the grain bill, coppery fresh baked front end devolves quickly into a woody hop bomb that must have some centennial in it along with some other heavy hitting C varietals. the yeast profile is oddly nondescript for me, i get nothing of the declared belgian yeast, and the alcohol is remarkably well hidden. also rather quick finishing for such a big beer, so i assume some high gravity ale yeast was used. a little thick in feel, but the exuberant carbonation brighten things up on the palate. a well packaged and well made from a brewery i had previously never heard of. fun stuff.
