4.88/5 rDev +10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Pres: 650 cc bottle with insane looking British officer and an assassin lurking in the background
Appearance: Copper, like the color of fermentation tanks. 1-2 fingers thick, sticky head. Clings to the glass. Very clear, no haze at all with a careful pour.
Smell: Man alive, I feel like I just opened a bag of fresh hops and dove in for a whiff. I half expect to see little yellow lupulin sacks floating in it. Piney, sharp cheddar. Beautiful.
Taste: Fantastic. Fresh hop, long, lingering bitter aftertaste, but not that "overhopped", out of balance flavor that a lot of these double IPA's are afflicted with. The best word for the overall taste is harmony between hop character and malt sweetness. I don't get a hint of alcohol, which is scarey.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth, too easy for the alleged 9.5%
Drikability: Again, too easy. This just goes down and feels good.
Notes: This is fast becoming my favorite style and this may have leap-frogged Victory Hop Wallop as my number 1, though the price is somewhat prohibitive. ($79 for 12 x 650cc bottles).
Serving type: bottle
