Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: TMoney2591 on 11-19-2012

Rich caramel malt sweetness is beaten over the head with bright, fresh American hop flavors of grapefruit citrus, pine and tropical fruit in our double IPA. This beer is the bigger, more successful brother of Kidnapped by Vikings.

Picked this up at Solemn Oath today.

Served in a Solemn Oath glass.

A: Poured a very cloudy gold, with a soft, white pepper-esque head.

S: Strong, strong, strong Pine Sol with cherry-infused filtered water. Grapefruit with even more added sugar.

T: Very hoppy, with quite a bit of lemon and orange zest. Others I split this with described it as soap….. I beg to differ.

M: The drinkability is a tad low on this one due to the richness, but it's still quite good. I wish there was a bit more caramel goodness in there.

O: Very respectable brew from a new (to me) brewery.

Opaquely hazed dull orange body. Billowing and fluffy white head.

The aroma is grapefruit rind, a light floral lilac, and a strong grainy malt presence.

The hops almost end with the aromatics. It's really grainy and the hop
presence is mildly bitter but the grapefruit and floral notes I picked up in the nose struggled to pop.

Mouthfeel is meditate-light and a pinch slick.

Just ok to me. It started out strong but fell off quickly. I will say it drank much lighter than 8%, that's a plus. I found combat marshmallow, the stout that was bottled about the same time, to be way hoppier.

Appearance is bright and inviting.

Smells of citrus fruits, hops, and bubblegum.

Taste is very citrusy and light for an 8% beer. Hop flavor a bit dull.

Mouthfeel is a mouthful of tropical fruit.

Overall this beer is a very good balance of fruit and hops to make this beer worth purchasing again.

A rocking citrus hop bomb mitigated by a bed of caramel sweetness..more like a imperial double red ale..my first Solemn Oath beer and I was NOT disappointed
