No no no. This is not an American Double, Imperial IPA (hopefully that will be corrected). This is an American Double Pale Ale. Well done and genre defining, I may add.
What an interesting ale. It comes out, full and strong with a pale ale aroma. It definitely looks a bit IPA in the glass, and the aftertaste (burp) is a big hoppy IPA, but the taste is pure pale ale. That's what makes this beer worth drinking and man, I can drink as much of the growler as I like and finish the rest tomorrow, so I am really all set with this exceptional beer.
That was more like social networking than a review! Gotta go drink some Blast. Bye.

pretty massive head on an easy pour, tons of wilding through the environs of the glass, bright golden straw color and lots of clarity, the head has good staying power and the lacing is also very good, a nice looking beer
definite musty-earthy hops, slight mango/citrus underneath, bready sweet malts hold this up, a well balanced mongrel, I personally would prefer a bit more kick from the hops in the aroma
fairly weighty in the mouth, very hefty and syrupy, more sweetness than bitter here, there is a mere twinge of bitterness that does linger in the background for some time which makes this drinkable considering the sweetness level, however it is definitely more of a malt peep show here (and I am out of quarters), this is a very smooth brew, the carbonation almost reminds me of german wheat beers for some reason, it drinks very light but yet the body is so deceptive, it also certainly packs a nice punch
a tasty brew, not the love of my life but I wouldn't kick it out of bed, well crafted but a little lax in the hop department for my personal tastes
