Illinois

4.08/5  rDev -6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Just saw that this was in Illinois, stopped by Inboden's Meat Market in DeKalb and saw this in the refrigerator door and had to pick it up. 22oz bomber poured into a Goose Island wine glass.

A: Pours out quite clear, golden amber, and topped with a slightly bubbly bone white head that sadly disappears mere moments after being poured into the glass. (and no, I do not drink out of dirty glasses, I just washed it is super hot water with baking soda, rinsed with vinegar and rinsed again with more piping hot water, so there).

S: West coast hoppy that's for sure, as my nose is greated with a slick honey coated hoppiness. Hops here are quite on the fruity side with slashes of sweet melon, more honey and just the slightest touch of pine. There is even a bit of malt sweetness that comes out near the end but you really have to want it to be there to notice it. Hard to separate this from any of a handful of other highly decent IPAs.

T/MF: Quite peachy up front, melon in the middle and piney and apricoty the longer you hold it in your mouth. With some additional warmth the maltier aspects of this beer begin to develop but as soon as you swallow a huge rush of hops comes flowing back in, leaving flavors of peach, pineapple and pine in the long and lasting finish. Mouthfeel is quite prickly and gets a bit slicker as the beer begins to warm on the tongue, keeps things interesting to say the least.

D: Pleasantly surprised by this beer. Firestone walker done good. It's been a while since I've had a decent double IPA and this is a nice way to get reacquainted with the style.
