On tap at the Rubicon Brewing Company. Pours a dark orange/copper color with a nice one finger of off-white head. The aroma is strong with nice pine and citrus notes, along with a stronger than expected malt presence. This malt presence is really accentuated in the taste, as it matches the massive hops you get. The taste is truly fantastic and blew me away, usually a strong malt presence isn't welcomed in a double IPA (IMO) but this really worked. The mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with good carbonation, and a rich and smooth finish with the right amount of bitterness, and the alcohol is well hidden.
Wow, this is right up there with Pliny the Younger for me...this is one amazing DIPA. Would love to get a hold of more of this.
Serving type: on-tap
