Another Double IPA is on the OC block. On-tap at Bottle Logic itself, on to the beer:

The color of toasted orange is sighted through the glass, topped with a few lines of lacing. Double IPA aromas are like walking through a candy store, but in this case it's like walking through a tropical fruit stand. Vibrant, with pleasing notes of papaya, pineapple and even peach (the 3 P's, I believe I'm the first to use that!). The taste is not far off the high mark left by the aroma. Passionfruit alley meets papaya road, which together make a mouth watering pair. There's a kiss of onion noted too, which is...different. A bit of the alcohol seeps through the wall of hops, though considering that it hits 10% ABV, it's still a tale of success. It's also quite smooth and not very bitter considering.

I like hops, and I like Double Actuator. Welcome to the block that already includes Royalty, Knuckle Sandwich, Jericho, and Humulus Lager.

Out of a bottle and into tbe baby Almanac snifter.

Like that moment when you ring the door bell of a first date after meeting her during a drunken Saturday prior.

And....

Meh. Not ugly, but not what you hoped for. And smell and taste follow suit. It's not a bad date, but it just wasn't what you were hoping for. A bit too bitter, too flat, too bland.

Next!

It warms...

Getting better. But Raul still isn't tripping.

Bottled 05/06/14, 10% ABV. Hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Centennial & Columbus.

Appearance: Clear, polished copper body with a clinging white head.

Smell: Big fruity hops - stone fruit, tropical fruit. Floral notes. Fairly sweet as well, but not excessively - the malt accentuates the fruitier aspects of the hop profile without contributing much actual grain aroma. This is on the verge of being too malty, without crossing that line; instead the malt is complementary to the hops.

Palate: Juicy apricot, pineapple, mango; just all-around juicy. On the sweeter side, without much bitterness, yet the malt is reigned-in just enough that it doesn't come across as cloying. Medium-bodied, perhaps leaning toward full. It's an easy drinker for the heft. The substantial malt backbone does a great job of highlighting the fruitier aspect of the hop bill. Thankfully there's no grain character here, or astringency from the crystal malt.

Overall: My first beer from this new brewery, and I'm pretty impressed. Looking forward to trying more from them.
