I didn't read the label that said "Double" IPA when I bought it. Instantly, after the first sip, I said to myself, "This must be a IIPA. Low and behold, I looked at the label, and much to my instinct, I was pleasantly surprised.
Awesome beer... Bready with a plethora of hops. There is an abundance of fruity Simcoe hops. Can't miss it. The aroma packs a punch, as well as the taste. The hops are not overly bitter by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I think this beer has an ideal malt-to-hop ratio.
Very happy with this beer. Rating is worth around 4.25 IMHO... :D
A- Dark Copper/Amber, huge 4-5 finger head from an extremely fresh bottle. Frothy slight-tan head showing small bubbles at the top with medium-sized bubbles lower on the head. Awesome lacing...
S- Fruity Simcoe hops with a sweet malt presence
T- Very SWEET bready/caramel malt that is slightly syruppy. Heavenly hops that aren't overbearing.
M- Medium/full body (IIPA body as it feels thicker than IPA), not watery, STICKY sweetness
O- Very Good beer (although not "excellent"), will drink again in the future. Not too soon as I have many others in line after this one.
If I'm in the mood for a sweet fruity DIPA in the future, this is the beer. If I'm more interested in a drier beer without the sticky sweetness, this beer would not be a first choice.
