Haaahhhh-PY!! WOW! Bitter and hoppy. Thick. This brew will grab your attention quickly. The brew came in a chilled can, then poured into a tulip glass.
A: Deep golden, almost orange. A bit like a soft-amber ale.
S: The aroma was that ganja-y like smell you get from a huge, hops-forward IPA. Reminded me of my college roommate smoking a bowl. Delish.
T: Every last thing you expect from a big, hops forward IPA is found in Dagger. Very, VERY hoppy. Very, VERY bitter. Not as malty as some might like; which is to say that the malt does not balance the hops. But, I enjoy that. I want to taste 99% hops, 1% malt.
M: Thick! I prefer a lighter mouthfeel (think: Nooner from Sierra Nevada). Good carbonation.
O: Overall, Dagger Falls IPA gets a solid 4/5 stars. Fantastic IPA translation. It's a big, heavy, hoppy, smelly, wonderful IPA. Since I haven't heard much (in fact i've never heard of this brew at all) I am going to suggest that this is one of the most underrated beers out there. In the crowded field of West Coast IPA's this guy is in the shadow of more known/established IPA's and will need a good marketing campaign to get it's name out.
