P: 1 Pint, 6 FL ozs bomber brown bottle with no freshness date, this was a fresh sample though.
A: Lighter side of golden (clear)...Limited head followed by OK lacing...
S: Piny, minty and citric hop nose ... strength in that order and a burst of hints of fruit...
T: Smooth and slick with a medium body... Bitterness is aggressive but not abusive, hop flavor jumps from herbal / tobacco to pine resin to mint to citric...
M: Nothing hot here, alcohol is noticeable for sure but it does not get in the way...malts are somewhat noticable too (but not as much as many DIPAs have been using)... slab of bread, toasted a bit. Finishes with a big hop flavor and lingering bitterness as well as the alcohol warmth.
D: I was suprised this was an imperial IPA/American Double...Reason being, the VERY light color, as well as the lack of body...most 'doubles' tend to have a darker, richer color, with a heavier body...I do appreciate this beer's drinkability...It's pretty smooth and refreshing...I just don't think I'm as big a fan of DIPAs as I was a year (or so) ago...I think I'll stick with standard IPAs...Chasin' Cheers :~)
