3.01/5 rDev -21.6%
Well, I am a huge dipa fan. I've been seeing this brewery around lately and thought I'd try their dipa a try
I got a moderate citrusy note on the nose. The beer pOured a nice orangey color. The white head was about a finger and a half and collapsed quickly
The beer was not as advertised as it seemed more malty than dipay.
I got some ruff malt with basic bitterness from the hops with little other hop flavor.
Like a bitter amber to me

12oz bottle. There is a date on here but it's a little blurry.
A- Poured into a wine glass it's a darker golden/light amber color with lively carbonation. Not much head on this one.
S- Candied sweetbread. Heavy malt. Ripe orange. Some hops hiding in there but very malt dominant.
T- When you have a malt dominant aroma you know the taste is going to follow. Overly sweet malt, muted citrus, muted pine. Hard to get past that sweet malt bomb.
M- Medium to light bodied. Average.
O- This is marketed as a DIPA? More like a malty single IPA or a hoppy amber. Pretty average all around.

22 oz. bottle purchased in CT in late 1/13 (no birth date), poured into my tasting 3Fs Teku long-stemmed glass, drank 3/12/13 over ~one hour.
A: 3.5 - amber-brown coloration, moderate clarity for a DIPA with little hop haze, whitish frothy 1 finger head that lingers into an attractive rim lacing, imperceptible alcohol legs
S: 2.5 - herbal/spice/floral notes with bready/toffee malt backbone, very little of the classic PW hop aroma that I've come to expect from an imperial IPA, suspect that it's not dry hopped and could certainly benefit from more at flame out too, unfortunately below average for style
T: 3.25 - surprising pop of bitterness on the anterior tongue, bitterness, citrus/grapefruit flavors (likely Cascade and Summit) on the posterior tongue and in the aftertase, moderate alcohol notes
M: 3.5 - medium body, moderate carbonation
O: 3 - Two Roads markets this as an imperial IPA, but, clocking in at 7.2%, it's really a single IPA, and, as much as I want to support new breweries in CT, I just wasn't impressed with this offering,. For the price, there are better single IPAs from breweries on both coasts. It's certainly drinkable, and I think that this would have been a good IPA ten years ago. Now, unfortunately for Roads 2 Ruin, there is just too much competition out there for this beer to be relevant for an IPA lover. There is not enough hop/aroma flavor for the unpleasant amount of bitterness on the anterior tongue and in the aftertaste for me to want to buy another bomber.
