4.3/5 rDev +0.5%
Presentation: 12 oz bottle with a freshness date.
Appearance: With the massive amount of hops I expect nothing less than a superb lace and that is what I got. A solid ring after every sip ... amazing. Slightly hazed bronze gold color the haze is most likely from the hops.
Smell: Fresh hop aroma, very oily with herbal and piney notes. Ripe fruity esters and some sweet malt in the back.
Taste: This beer is so juicy, what a hop punch it has. Lots of bitterness and a ton of hop oil flavor from front to back. Very smooth with a thick malty body. Nice cake like maltiness in the middle with a ripe fruit and alcoholic kick in the end, finishes a little sweet with lingering bitter hop tones.
Notes: An exceptional example of an American Double IPA, no worries about getting my hop fix here.

The first time I had this beer was what really turned me on to IPA's, its what you think of when you drink a DIPA, although I have drank many more since that blow this one away. I recently saw this on sale so I thought I would give it a good overview now that I am more in tune with the style and I will have to say that after trying some other bruisers that this one was a bit disappointing. I say this because I have become somewhat of a hop addict. I felt that there was too much malt in the beer making it a bit too sweet for what I prefer. Nevertheless, I will give it a higher mark because it was the beer that got me into the style and for that reason it does deserve a higher place in the pantheon of DIPA's. If nothing else it is produced year around and is pretty much obtainable everywhere and often you can find grocery stores that mark it down, which as we know is a nice thing considering the rising prices of beer lately.
