A: Cloudy, resinous, straw-green beer under a frothy inch-tall head that heavily laces the snifter with oily lacy residue.
S: Big, American hops dominate the nose; pine, citrus, and earthy rich smells.
T: Strongly bitter, the fruity and piney hops assert themselves over the malt. Bitterness takes over late in the sip, and the hops warm the dry finish.
M: Lovely chewiness appropriate for a resinous DIPA.
O: Finally, LBC catches the hoppy DIPA wave, but perhaps 24 months too late to stand up to the competition represented by People's Brewing. Gotta love hometown rivalry.
Battleground Double is, with any luck, LBC's capitulation to raging desire for hopped-up American style offerings (with the all-Michigan sourced hopped Harrison APA promised for mid-month, it's a good month to be a hophead in Lafayette). Battleground Double is a respectable, big higher-alcohol DIPA that would have kept me a much more regular returning customer to LBC over the past few years. See my updated review of the pub itself, which seems to have undergone a serious transformation and upgrade in numerous meaningful categories.
