Another Huntsville, AL brew that just blew me away.
This is a beer with a 10% alcohol content. It tastes as though it is a boilermaker. Fruity, but with a distinct whiskey flavor to the beer. I'm not an IPA fan, but this double IPA is balanced by a fruity flavor that leaves a decent aftertaste that I don't mind at all. Minimal carbonation rounds out the overall experience of the brew. I have to say, I was surprised and impressed with the brews offered in Norther Alabama.
Serving type: on-tap

As I like to torture myself sometimes here we go. Poured into a snifter from a 22oz bottle dated 8.23.12 so it is several months old. It's the freshest I could find in the market.
A: beer pours very murky orange/light brown in color and starts off with a 1/2 finger white head that very quickly goes away and leaves a thin white film on top of th beer. A swirl kicks it back up but quickly it's back down again. I don't know if this beer has yeast in the bottle or not I can't tell due to the haze.
S: I can smell this beer from 3 feet away. Smells sugary sweet with a slight orange aroma which I would assume comes from dry hopping?? There is some spice in the nose as well, but that could just be the sweetness. I'm surprised that I am not picking up any booze aroma as this "IPA" is a whopping 10%. Ok as this beer warms the alcohol hotness starts to come through in the aroma.
T: to be honest I am scared to taste this beer, but here I go. I think I am picking up some kind of oxidation here. I do get a wet paper taste in the front with some bitterness. Glad the beer isn't as sweet as I thought it would be, though it is sweet but at 10% what beer isn't somewhat sweet. Finish is all hot boozy alcohols, not really something I would drink on a regular basis if at all again. I can't pick out anything in the beer but a citrus bitterness and booze. Not very complex.
M: right now after drinking what little I have my mouth is coated in a bitter boozy mess. The sweetness hangs around too as it goes along. Anyone have a palate cleanser?
O: overall? I really hope this beer gets better. It's not very complex and its boozy. If you want to get drunk and have a terrible hangover in the morning this beer is for you. Otherwise I suggest not buying. Oh why is there an IPA in the name? It's not an IPA more like just a strong ale.

1.68/5 rDev -38.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5
A: Poured a murky deep orangish color with a nice white cap which resdes leaving a small ring of white bubbles and some good lacing
S: Grapefruit and orange peel with a persistent band aid and burnt plastic aroma
T: Immediate band aid, a melted solo cup also comes to mind with some lingering grapefruit/orange peel bitterness. A little booze sting followed by more plastic. The finish is bitter and dirt
M: Medium to heavy bodied, well carbonated, cloying and bitter. The plastic note hangs out on the palate
O: This beer is a leg up from the draft version but still needs TLC.
