Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.
A: Clear, light amber color with over one finger of parchment-tinted foam head. Moderate lacing remains on the glass.
S: Strong resinous pine and ground spices make for a classic, if dated, West Coast hops smell. Toasted bread and caramel are also present, suggesting a balanced double IPA rather than a simple palette upon which hops are displayed. No alcohol is detected.
T: Begins dry, with savory crystal malt that cultivates an umami quality not often seen in a beer of the style. Hops aromatics are simplistic, following the smell closely but struggling to display focus on any particular quality. Some fruit develops during the middle, conflicting with the hops flavors that turn medicinal. The finish is moderately bitter, with relatively little flavor or character other than some latent mint that is likely lending the medicinal qualities. No alcohol is detected.
M: Medium to thick viscosity, very resinous and sticky on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: This DIPA underachieves or otherwise phones in practically every detail of its sensory profile; even the tint of the beer is a shade or two more dark than the ideal. Taken all together, it is not a train wreck so much as something that sneaks across the palate never to be contemplated again. It is hard to imagine the makers of this beer looking forward to a glass of it at the end of the day.

Ok...to begin with I must admit I was attracted to the great label and the fact that it is a "double" or "imperial" IPA. Pours well with a half finger of head and nice lacing all the way.
Color is a dark amber. Clear with medium carbonation. Aroma is typical for an IPA..strong hops with citrus, hay and grass. Nice mouth feel and bitter hoppy taste with a malty back
feel. All in all an above average brew, if not outstanding. Enjoy!
