A very neutral DIPA not too bitter nor sweet. Just malty and an average hop profile. Poor aroma. Beautiful amber slightly cloudy. Mouth feel was a bit creamy with a little bite at the end. Medium body and semi dry finish.

An average beer deserving an average rating.

A - Murky orange gold with two fingers off an off white foamy head, medium lacing.
S - Blehhhh alcohol, canned fruit mix, sweet malts, bready.
T - So weirdly malty, and sweetened canned fruits, some metallic kinda taste, lots of hop bitterness in the end.
M - Bitter, sticky, chewy, cloying
O - This is just flat out bad. Its not a good strong ale, nor a good double IPA

picked up a mixed case from bell beverage, all of the beers have been either over-carbonated or infected. poured this beer in a pint glass, but it overflowed for the first 2/3, then was able to handle it. I homebrew and drink many brews over 1 year old but hard to handle this level of carbonation as a mistake so Im reviewing it s an attribute.

poured into a standard pint glass, color is amber head is is deep.

aroma is neutral malts, then heavy on caramel like malts and older, but previously fresh hops.

taste is sim-ilar to the aroma, malt forward but lightly hoppy. interesting ale, but mixed results. I like the idea but would need to try this fresh

mouthfeel is neutral for an ale, a bit biting from some thinner carbonatoin but not unpleasant
