Serving: On tap at Scotty's Brewhouse in Bloomington, IN
Served: 26 April 2014
Appearance: Pours an amber brown with a slight white head. Unfortunately Scotty's pint glasses are exactly 16oz, so they pour to the rim. The beer has great color though and the head that was there left some great lacing.
Smell: Much more subdued hop aroma than I was expecting for a DIPA, but I did pick up on assertive grapefruit-like hops. A weak statement from sweet malts also present.
Taste: Bitter grapefruit-like hops overlaid on a big, sweet, almost sticky malt backbone. Though the stickiness is a bit strange at first, I came to like it- it really buffed up the body of the beer and let the soft bitterness of the hops counterbalance nicely.
Mouthfeel: Thick and sticky. This is a big beer. Unfortunately the carbonation is lacking in this one, making it feel all the bigger on the tongue.
Overall: I got this beer first on $2.50 pint Thursday and had it when waiting for my burger and during the first half of that burger. This beer is big and heavy and really dominated the dish. I enjoyed the cat-and-mouse game between the grapefruit bitterness and the sweet malts. A solid DIPA, and a good beer to get you warmed up.
Serving type: on-tap
