I've been looking forward to trying this and was thrilled to see it in the beer store. I picked up a six pack. This tasting was a bottle poured into an Allagash chalice. It's a very dark double IPA...a dark brown with amber hues. Thick frothy head that never fully goes away. Lots of lacing on the glass. Interesting that there is a fair amount of sediment floating around. The sediment isn't moving, either...it's just sort of suspended there. Honestly, I wasn't sure what style this was (IPA vs DIPA), but I knew with the first whiff. Big hop presence in the nose. Kind of sweet, too (caramel?). A hint of citrus. The taste follows the nose. Lots of bitter hops. The bitterness certainly lingers. I'd prefer if the bitterness was toned down just a bit. The citrus in the mouth is more noticeable than in the nose. The grapefruit also has me chomping my teeth. It's got a pretty heavy mouthfeel for a DIPA. Leaves lots of stick. It's definitely a sipper. All in all, I like this beer and another double IPA available in a six pack is never a bad thing.
