Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours hazy amber orange with a nice one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a small ring around the edge, leaving sticky webs of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of caramel, toffee, pine needles, earthy hops, dash of fresh fruit and plenty of mildly toasted sweet malt.

T - Starts off with toffee and pine resin quickly being joined by the earthy and fruity hops and finally the sweet caramel malt. Finish is a little sweet with some backing dryness, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Slick, sweet feel with some dryness after each sip.

O - A decent DIPA. I am always interested in trying new to me Bell's beers but I have had better from them.

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.
