22 oz. bomber served in a nonic.
One finger of foam sits atop this beauty that is a fuzzy peach appearance. One can almost detect hop particles floating around in this bad boy.
The malt wallops the nose along with a smack of booze. This is one serious brew. Smells like a sipper. A definite arsonal of hops are hiding in ambush behind the malt.
Taste confirms the nose. A heavy syrupy sweet IIPA that packs an alcohol bite and then the hop assault hits like a blitzkrieg. A full on resin rush. Long bitter finish that begs for the next sip (after some time). One cannot rush this beer.
Mouthfeel is heavy and chewy, syrupy with great carbonation for an imperial india pale ale. Above average for this style.
A world-class IIPA, this has set the standard for a long time and is every bit as good as those west coast brews! Founders is right up there in the realm of midwest hoppiness. Two Brothers Hop Juice deserves a mention along with Half Acre Double Daisy. I forgot Pipeworks Ninja vs Unicorn. Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree....hmmm. In a nod to the west coast that Double Jack is in a tie for my favorite. Myrcenary nails the Mountain trophy. East coast award goes to Southern Tier DIPAS!! Where does it end? A quest for the best...stay tuned.

Served on tap at Spinoza's in Beavercreek, Ohio. The appearance is unremarkable, but with a solid head and fairly sticky lacing. The smell is tropical fruit--not as pronounced and appealing as, say, White Rajah, but still quite good. The taste consists of mango, orange, and lemon flavors, and the bitterness from the hops just isn't here--imagine, a DIPA without bitterness--instead is sweetness from the citrus hops. The mouthfeel is unusual, but not bad at all--this beer is on the thin side (it could pass for a session beer if not for the high ABV) and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a DIPA well worth trying.

Great beer! There is a serious complexity to this beer. While it has the hop forward properties of any other DIPA's its smooth, and without a lingering bitter finish. There is a bitterness to it, but there is a malt complexity that changes the finish to make it smooth with a hint of sweetness. This beverage got better with every sip.
