On tap in Dublin, OH

Never had this beer before, but I love a double IPA as much as the next hop head. Great beer, great flavor, bought a growler of it to send back east as part of a trade. Had it head to head next to Double Trouble, and it stood its ground. Not as much fruit as a DT, but more centerd on a straight up IIPA with a mouthful of bitter hops with flavor to go along with it.

Serving type: on-tap

Had on-tap at Westville Pub Asheville. Served in a 10 oz cocktail glass.

A- Pours a hazy medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly fu sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves clots behind on the glass.

S- Earthy, slightly pungent hops. Smells sort of like an amped up Two-Hearted.

T- Taste follows the nose with piney hops and a pronounced bitterness. More citrus notes than in the nose with some grapefruit and lemon coming through.

M- Lingering sharpness with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- If you find Two-Hearted to be too mild, go for this one. While it's not even close to as good as Bell's trophy winners, The Oracle and Hopslam, it packs a powerful hop punch that will tide you over while you wait for the aforementioned beers' release dates.
