Not my ipa. Complete lack of fruit/citrus hints.

An easy drinking big hoppy beer with citrusy hops oozing out of the bottle.
There is some haziness in the beer after my pour. the color is your basic golden amber.
The beige head that sits on top is pretty tall and dense. Very much carbonated so I don't think that head will fade too much.
The aroma is hoppy with some citrus notes even perhaps some floral and herbal.
It's balanced too i can smell the malts and they have an almost pilsner malt smell.
Drinks bitter up front sweet in the middle and bitter at the end.
There is a hoppy and malty balance here but subtle and not as bold as the nose.
A good tasting beer that flows easily over the palate, perhaps some mild gritt.
A good beer, go get one!

Poured from a bottle, drank from a tulip.

A: Light amber pour with a lot of bubbles. One finger white head, with legs.

S: Very mild fruity smell, almost undistinguishable 30 seconds after pouring.

T: A very mild beer. You get some hoppy bitterness after drinking for a while. As soon as I sip it the tip of my tongue tingles and I can just notice some spice from the alcohol.

M: Light/Medium body.

D: For such a high alcohol beer and being a DIPA, I’d expect a lot stronger flavors. The hops and alcohol come on very soft. I do like this beer, though. At 8.2% and being this easy to drink this might be my new backyard beer.

Solid all around, if not spectacular.

A great beer overall. I have to admit that the aftertaste, or, rather, the "afterbreath" is slightly unpleasant for some reason. After drinking most of a six-pack, the taste on my breath isn't the most enjoyable, and is worse after waking up in the morning. This might be just me, however, and I won't let it effect my rating of this otherwise great beer. If you haven't tried 2XIPA yet, put it on the "to do" list.

12oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a: One finger wispy head over a honey gold body.

s: Hoppy. Grassy.

t: Hops up front but not overwhelming. A nice caramel malty follows. The alcohol is well concealed.

mf: Medium bodied and balanced. Slight hoppy bite.

o: Smooth and easy to drink. An absolute pleasure, actually.

Had two of these the other night at a local restaurant in Crownsville, MD, Lures. (They have a very nice selection of various beers on tap.) Really nice showing from this DIPA. Nice color, fresh taste and good finish that you’d expect from a very good quality IPA. Still may prefer my favorites, but this was a good one. Definitely recommend.
