Why are Miracle Mike and his dog, Bionic, being chased by many evil laser beam shooting cupcakes and two giant layer cake mother ships? Because we're straight lunatic fools? Well, maybe, but with a few brains cells remaining we managed to craft Space Cake double IPA, utilizing citrusy Mosaic hops and an immaculate West Coast style malt backbone. Dude... Chill out. Enjoy some Space Cake.

Great dipa. White thick head. Amber body. Smell of pine , citrus and mango. Great malt balances a distinctively hoppy flavor. Great carbonation. Not flat. Best dipa I've ever had.

A double should still have a clean finish. Many doubles hold an overpowering sappy finish on the palate that overshadows the beer overall. This beer falls into this category.

Head off the pour was a fat finger, lacing was mild and the foam didn't last very long. Fairly translucent bright orange in color with visible carbonation that carried through to the mouthfeel enough to make this a highly drinkable DIPA; 9% be damned.

I got a lot of tropical fruits on the nose, pineapple and mango chiefly. Also some apricot, but not much in the way of the bitter citrus aromas you might associate with big IPAs. The other readily apparent aroma was a decidedly sweet, caramel like malt note, to the extent that the hop bitterness you are greeted with when you drink it is a little surprising (in a good way). The malt character is assertive enough to leave an impression, but not to the extent that the sweetness is cloying.

I really enjoyed this beer and will be picking up another bomber before they disappear from my packie of choice.
