750 mL shared with Meghan on Christmas afternoon.

Even an aggressive pour doesn't coax much head out of this glowing, hazy orange-amber colored brew, perhaps mostly because it's pretty cold and needs to come up a bit in temp.

Aroma of grapefruit, mostly. Taste is a lot of citrus up front - lots of grapefruit, with some bitter orange and lemon. Some hoppy pineness, but much more citrus fruit here. Pale malts finish pretty clean - there's a little cloying sweetness but not much. Fruity esters here, too.

All in all, a sneaky potent brew that is clean, straightforward and enjoyable.

From my tasting notes: As a double IPA I was expecting a lot and this one delivered right off the bat. As a bottle conditioned IIPA it poured a nice hazy copper with a sharp fruity herbal aroma that you could smell as soon as I opened the bottle. It may be an IIPA, but this one was more in the realm of a Barley Wine with a thick syrupy mouthfeel and complex taste. The Squall had fat chewy hops with a good balance of biscuity malts that helped keep everything balanced. It was a very impressive beer.
