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.

For the high amount (my opinion) of alcohol in it is very good. Many other brews with 6% or more seem to have a bitey taste that lingers.

To piney, too bitter, not enough here. Feels like they added a ton of hops to the boil and they lost everything you really want because of it. Not my favorite by S. Tier, the one that i give out from their 12 pack. Eh

L - A nice light golden caramel
S - Hop forward and sweet malt
T - A nice balanced hop blend that does a wonderful job hiding the high alcohol content
F - Medium mouth feel that balances well with the aroma and hop bite
O - A darned good double IPA. Many times these stronger IPA's are hard to drink, this one is smooth and easy.
