3.73/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Served in a pint glass from a 22oz bomber.

A - Pours a golden amber with a nice, white head. Plenty of lacing remains on the glass the entire time.

S - Piney hops hit me first, followed by some essence of the malts.

T - Picking up more malt, with a slightly bitter hop aftertaste.

M - A medium bodied beer with good carbonation.

A good DIPA. I've been drinking more Speakeasy beers lately and really liking their style.

3.16/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

I'd seen this several times in liquor stores, but always had other targets in mind. Grabbed one this time just to give it a try.

App-Nice light amber color and creamy white head. Nice lacing and solid retention.

Smell- Malt...I smell malt...all I smell is malt..it's malty. It's not BAD malty, but I like my Double IPAs to smack me in the face a bit with hops and I don't get that here.

Taste-Did I mention it's malty?...for me, it's not as balanced as I like. I want to get a lot of hops from my big IPAs and again, this just doesn't have it. Not that it's horrible, just not really on my list of 'go too' IPAs.

Mouthfeel- It's best feature, for me. Nice, if slightly bready, feel for me. All that malt gives it a big body and it's a real mouthful.

Overall-Um...it's Malty....not horrible, but just doesn't set itself apart from the MANY really good Double or Imperial IPAs out there. Drinkable, even enjoyable, but not one I'd order if the menu included a good selection.
