Ran across this double IPA at Brown Derby International Wine Exchange in Springfield, MO. A fan of Mother's Brewing, this was a must have as I'd not seen it before.
Pouring Doozy into a Bodum hand blown pint glass revealed a very nice clear copper-orange beer topped with a single finger of off white foam which thins to a ring leaving behind some loose random patterns of sticky lace. The 9.0% abv is probably responsible for the seemingly short head retention.
Before pouring the aromas are evident. Once poured pronounced aromas of sweet bread, apple, orange, melon, pine, and caramel drift to the nose.
Flavors pretty much follow the nose with expressed sweetness - white bread, apple, orange, grapefruit, caramel, and pine followed by fading bitter. Makes me feel like I'm drinking something brewed with honey. Very nice. Really unlike any other IPA I've encountered.
Mouthfeel is medium, oily, and has that "chewiness" that BAs always quander.
Overall this is exactly what I expect from Mother's - a terrific beer. Nobody on the planet expects an IPA quite this good from this corner of the world, yet here it is. At 9.0% I would be very careful of how much and how fast these are consumed. A nice sipper and another winner from the guys at Mother's. Beer traders take notice.

3.83/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Rich golden hue with excellent clarity. A tightly knit half inch thick off white head rests on top. Brussels lacing. Strong aroma of citrus hops greets me. The flavor is more citrus hops along with a nice light malt backbone. The nose seems to suggest more hop intensity. The mouth is moderately carbonated and yet creamy.
