Snake Pro, filled on 8-3-11 and consumed on 8-11-11
Served in New Belgium globe glass.
A: Pours clear amber with a modest white head that caves in quickly. Some lacing sticks to glass. Nice effervescence for a relatively big beer.
S: A blend of citrusy hops, pitted fruits like peach or nectarine and strong herbs. Additional aromas include subtle pear, caramel and spices.
T: A little malty sweetness up front. Taste is a significantly more intense realization of the pleasant but subdued characteristics of smell. More citrus, fruit and spice. In addition, some pine. Medium-high bitterness and long herbal and bitter finish.
M: Medium-heavy body and medium-light carbonation. Mouthfeel is oily and relatively heavy.
O: Snake Pro is an above-average DIPA that has benefitted significantly from Lahti's tweaking of the recipe. It is a big, tasty take on the style, third in Indiana to FFF Dreadnaught and Arctic Panzer Wolf. Other Hoosier BAs who rate this beer an F would be wise to go out of their way to acquire a bottle that is not obviously old.

Appearance: Another good looking beer from Figure Eight - pours a clear copper with a magnificent head; excellent retention leaving a few strands of lace behind
Smell: Sugary caramel tones joined by piney hops
Taste: A lot of sugary caramel flavors, up front, but the hops don't give an inch and join with a blast of piney bitterness; after the swallow, the malt and hops reach a crescendo and are joined by a bit of boozy alcohol; both the sweet and bitter flavors linger into the finish
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with moderate carbonation and some warmth in the gullet
Overall: As I typically don't like really malty DIPAs, I wasn't expecting to like this very much but there was something about the hops they used that put me in the camp of the fans
Thanks, jonallen, for the opportunity

A- somewhat clear amber color with a white quickly dissipating head.
S- caramel and grassy, spicy, hop aromas.
T- intense grassy flavors with a healthy malt backbone to support this unusual flavor profile.
Mf- medium bodied with a slightly sticky residual presence.
Pretty good beer overall.

Really enjoy some of Figure8's beers. They are getting better and better.
This one was too big for me. Poured ok, looked ok, smelled good.
Was ready for a double IPA and then I was walloped with this overpowering taste of hops and alcohol.
I had it a few months ago, so my review may not be as detailed as I'd like.
But overall, this one had too much alcohol taste and wasn't what I enjoy or hoped for.
I prefer the citrus, smoothly hopped IPA. 10% 12% it's all good. I just dont like having it overpower the taste.
I'll stick with figure 8, but will not return to this one anytime soon.
