Notes/Commercial Description:
A big, hoppy IPA with plenty of bite! Our assertive, hop-centric Double IPA has a lean malt backdrop and is brewed with four American hop varieties – Summit, Palisade, Cascade and Magnum. Piney, citrus, floral, not-for-the-timid!

Two roads road2ruin from notes

Picked up locally bottle dated 2/21/2014
enjoyed in a two roads snifter

a - brew pours a transparent orange with a finger of head and spotty lacing. Some visible carbonation. 4

s - nose is a nice blast of citrus. Not too bitter, not too sweet...just right. Smells fantastic. 4.75

t/m - the citric blast from the nose hits my palate first and is then immediately washed over with bitterness. Really nice IIPA but a touch too heavy on the bitterness. As my palate adjusts I overcome the bitterness and experience that wonderful fruitiness. Medium bodied and a bit chewy. Bitter aftertaste 4.25 3.75

o - overall I am fairly impressed with this beer. A very worthy IIPA 4.25

3.84/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: medium amber and clear, thick head fat-as-ya-want-it

S: grassy and floral, honey-drizzled hops; piney dark notes with citric highlights

T: fresh malty caramel, crisp and clean; bitter hops bring lots of herbal and resinous character, with hits of citric pith and woodier/earthier notes

M: medium-chew and body, some heft for a 7.6 abv, nice bitterness; slight tack and coat

O: a nicely made DIPA without any particularly distinctive characteristics. Leans toward the IPA end of the DIPA spectrum.
