A ~ Pours a Coppered Amber w/ great clarity & sparse sticky lacing. Looks less than Intimidating for a 9% IIPA, but hey, maybe they just filter the shit out of their beer.

S ~ Rich, Sweet Malt notes with sticky, but faded hop notes. Pine & Citrus mostly. I can tell this once had an amazing nose. But right now it's underwhelming.

T ~ Citrusy hops following through w/ strong dried apricot/peach notes & sweet sweet yet clean maltyness that reminds of raw cane sugar. Pulling dryness from the hops, even at it's age.

M ~ Easy going down w/ an extremely sticky mouthfeel that I come to expect & enjoy in a IIPA. Dry.

D ~ Would definitely drink again, but Hopefully fresher next time. Great beer for the price.

Poured into a glass from a 12oz bottle.

A - pours a dark straw, appearing medium gold in the glass. Several large pieces of sediment in the glass. 1/4 inch white head with medium lace.

S - strong hop aroma, more floral than piney, along with a noticeable malt presence.

T - hop bitterness coats the palate, but the taste is quickly taken over by the malt. Bready malt with a noticeable caramel malt backbone. No harsh hop finish (I wanted it to be there). The alcohol is well hidden.

M - more heavy than medium bodied. Good carbonation for the style. Smooth finish, but smoother than expected.

O - great taste but not near as much hops as the aroma would lead to believe. More malty than hoppy. Not a bad double IPA but not the hop bomb I was expecting though. Still a good beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle into a sam adams glass. Clear copper color, lot of carbonation. Decent white head with good lacing.

Smell is grass and butterscotch, with just a bit of alcohol.

Taste is malt sweetness with a nice balance of hops. Alcohol taste is non existent. Easy to drink and smooth. Each drink makes me want to have another one. Helped by the velvety mouthfeel and dry finish. Has a bit of a plastic taste, but it is overshadowed by the other good parts of the beer.

Overall, very drinkable. Especially considering the ABV.
