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.
