22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

Pale brassy hue, superb looking lacing. Fresh hop resin, semi-dank and herbal, tobacco, lemon grass and grapefruit pith make for quite a hoppy nose. Pungent, agressive hopping here. Bitterness is pretty intense but not a palate destroyer. Smooth and creamy, very chewy medium body. Dank, piney, mint, tobacco, peppery alcohol, underlying breadiness, noticeable alcohol, lemon zest, papaya , rose water, long bitter semi-dry finish.

The hoppiness is almost relentless on taking over my tastebuds but there is a smidgen of balance here.

Appearance - Fairly dark amber gold. Clear. Short off white head, not persistent.

Smell - Hoppy. Mainly a nice herbal aroma.

Taste - Heavy dose of grassy hops balanced with a nice rich molasses-y medium roasted malt. Clear alcohol warmth. Not quite what I was expecting, but rich and balanced - a good tasting, weighty beer.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full. Smooth.

Overall - I like it. Some might not agree with the designation of style.

A - Hazy copper pour with a two finger foamy white head.

S - Nose is sweet honey and malt, with dank hops, grapefruit, pine, and some booziness.

T - Lots of honey and candy sugar sweet malt up front, bitter finish. Odd aftertaste, with a sharp, puckering mix of borderline sugary malt and mild alcohol burn. Some citrus flavor as well.

M - Thick and slick body with ample carbonation.

O - WTF was this? I've never had a IIPA with so much sweetness up front and lacking hop flavor. Reminds me of a hoppy barley wine.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Wait, this is a DIPA from Capital? Alright. Let's do this. It pours a midnight copper-bronze topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises pine resin, light leek, and thick caramel. The taste brings in more of the same, with a sharper resin character, a weaker caramel backbone, and a malingering bitterness that just ends up dulling my tongue, Novocaine-style. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, it's a nice enough DIPA, I suppose, but it's just a blunt thwack of bitterness and lacks the usual balance and control Capital is known for.

Pours amber with a big frothy head.

Smells great, bready malty base with grapefruit, pine, and herbal hop notes.

Taste is a muddled mess for me though. Lacking complexity, one hoppy note of dank resiny pine, some grass and bread in there. No bite at the finish.

Medium carbonated mouthfeel, though ends up flat feeling, perhaps from the flavor profile.

I love me some Capital lagers, but this just missed the boat - or overturned it I guess. The hopping just didn't lend itself to any definition of flavor, it was just a wall of flat dank hops.
