Billed as an American Double IIPA. No shit eh?
I first had this on tap at Victory in Downington. Terrrific beer. this very well could have been my first experience with the American Double IIPA when I enjoyed it back in 2007. Since then I have enjoyed countless beers brewed in this style.
This review is from a bottle that my lovely wife recently picked up for me.
Appearance is Amber almost tawny in color. Not quite orange, not quite amber, but the hue is somewhere in between.
Aroma is honey like with slight hints of pine cones and evergreen tree's. Some alcohol in the nose.
Taste is sweet, with hints of honey and some light spiciness, with a bit of a malty biscuity taste.
Rich full bodied beer that improves at is warms up. Brilliant dank goodness in a glass. Finishes remarkably dry, crisp and clean despite the initial sweetness at first sip.
Yet another fabulously drinkable beer from the folks at Victory. They keep me coming back for more. They really know their stuff and are usually spot on for hitting the style they set out to brew.
