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!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

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

A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down rather quickly, leaving a lacy webbing of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of floral and grassy hops are present in the nose along with some hints of apricots.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and also has notes of tangerines. The hops contribute a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and relatively crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This Double IPA doesn't seem to have nearly as strong as a malt backbone compared to other beers in the style, but it has an interesting mix of aromas and flavors from the hops and the lighter body nature of this beer makes it rather easy to drink.
