I heard so much about this brew through the fellows at free the hops, i had to check this one out. glad i did...
it pours a very brownish-amber. the head on this was very, very thin.
the smell: pine, hops, and some cintrus (orange and tangerine and grapefruit)...and more hops and pine. i could sit here and smell this brew for a while.
taste- the hops slams you pretty good on this one. alcohol is pretty evident on this, which may turn some away, but doesn't really bother me. the pine and oranges and grapefruit come back for appearance on the taste as well.
mouthfeel: i love love the way this is kind of oily and creamy in the mouth. it coats the mouth, leaving you tasting the hops on this for awhile after you sip this.
drinkability: i could drink this beer all night. this is by far one of the best double ipas i have had in long time. i am glad atlanta's so close to birmingham because i will be making several trips over to have this one frequently. a definite must have for ipa/hop lovers.
