A) Pours with a big, white head that takes a bit to settle. Sticky big bubble lacing. Hazy bronze colored body.
S) Robust hop aroma. Piney. Subtle citrus.
T) Hop bite from the beginning to the end. Hops are the dominate feature. The malts mix in and give some balance. Linger hop bitterness in the aftertaste and beyond. Piney. Peppery. Leafy. Subtle buttery caramel. Some alcohol in the finish.
M) Medium body. Dry. Some noticeable warmth from the alcohol. Tannic.
O) A decent double IPA. It could use a bit more malts to smooth out the hop rigidity.

Rare cask serving from Three Crow Restaurants one year anniversary party.
Had Several of these from the cask , great smell and aroma, citrus and hops. Warm hazy appearance
taste very flavorful lots or resonance all the way through.
Got better even as it warmed more. Great offering,
I will need to compare to next bottle serving

Sebago Brewing Company - Full Throttle Double IPA, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.
Look - Pours a hazy deep rich copper amber with a slight ruby hue and one hell of a foamy head that retains quite well. Exceptional lacing.
Smell - Deep dank citrus and bitter pine blended well with heavy caramel malts.
Taste - Sweet malts with a carbonated snap and a nice citrus overlay that eases into bitter pine. Advertisement states that the malts don't take center stage, but they do.
Mouthfeel - Oily and sticky for sure, malt bomb. Big and boozy warm. Medium to almost heavy body. Decent drinkability.
Overall - Malt bomb makes for a sad DIPA to most hop heads. This isn't bad, but it isn't really good either. Don't recommend if you are looking for that clean hop experience.
