I heard great things about this beer so I was excited when I found a four pack after the initial run that I missed out on. The bottles that I picked up were less than a week old when I bought them. My first impressions of this beer were very favorable but then unfortunately, later bottles didn't taste quite as good.
It seems like so many double IPAs are very sweet and malty as a big malt backbone is needed to balance out the huge hop bill. Originally I thought this beer was sweet but very hop-forward. As I cracked open more and more bottles of this, I started to think this beer was overly sweet and it masked the crisp, bitter hops I hoped to find.
Overall, this beer is very good but for whatever reason, my impressions of it got worse with the more bottles I drank.
