2XIPA pours a nice lingering off-white head from the bottle. Big round bubbles of carbonation swimming though the golden body. A lighter body than most west coast DIPAs I've tried. Monstrous amounts of lacing- thick bands of head line the circumference of the glass with each indulgent sip. By the end of the beer, the glass is like a work of art.
Superb aroma full of in-your-face fruity hops, grapefruit, citrus, berries.
Extremely fresh and fruity taste. Nice creamy texture at first when you dive through the head- that just does not dissipate at any point- followed by a crisp DIPA hoppy finish. A little bit of nice fruity malt bitterness lingers slightly on the sides of the mouth after each sip to balance things out.
The 8.20% ABV is devilishly well-hidden behind the mountains of hops and multitude of fruity tones contained within this beer. Overall, a very fine beer and outstanding east coast double IPA. I could drink these all night.
