22oz. bomber with no freshness date, poured into an Allagash snifter.
A: Deep orange hue, a few shades away from traffic cone, with cumulus cloud colored head that's two fingers thick. Substantial lacing clings to the glass and the body of the beer doesn't let any light shine through. Really interesting. The head remains throughout, which rocks.
S: Big hop aroma and with syrupy sweetness, as well as pine and orange rine.
T: Wow, expected a slightly more complex Green Flash IPA, but this is totally different. Shame on me. Massive hop bitterness on the front of the palate, with a trace of malt afterwards, which teases with a suggestion of balance. But this is 101 ibu's so forget it. Hops, biting hops.
M: Medium bodied and crisp-feeling. What every double IPA should aspire to.
D: Make a call for delivery for dinner and throw your keys behind the couch... this is way drinkable, especially for any hophead. If you want a potent one-beer nightcap, this is a great candidate.
