Notes/Commercial Description:
"This annual favorite is a sublime hybrid of an American style IPA and a winter warmer.

Dry hopped to amplify the aromas and flavor. Available in 22oz. bottles and draught. ABV 6.5% IBU 68"

Double deuce purchased at Westmere Beverage on 11-19-10 ($4.99 I think). Consumed on 11-20-10.

A: Poured from the bomber into a pint glass. Body is coppery-amber with a small (half-finger at most) ivory head. Some splotchy lace clings to the glass.

S: Nice nose for an IPA - citrusy (grapefruit) hops dominate, along with a touch of pine. As it warms there's more malt sweetness - whole wheat toast comes to mind.

T: First impression: citrusy, and slightly resiney piney hops. But there's a nice foundation of malt here too - caramel malt/toffee-like sweetness provides balance. In fact, at times the malt and hops seem to battle for prominence, reminding me more of an English-style IPA at times. In the end, however, the hops prevail - as they should for this style. . . . Finishes with a slightly minerally, dry bitterness with a touch of pine needles, perhaps spruce even - bringing to mind SN Celebration in some ways.

M: Good active but fairly fine-bubbled carbonation. Medium in heft.

D: Very good. This is my first Full Sail beer. They're off to a good start in my book; if I could find more of this, I'd buy it again. . . .
