12oz Bottle into tumbler, bottled 11/14/11
The beer pours a clear amber/copper with a nice white head. Lookin’ good so far. The smell is surprisingly malty for an IPA with some nice biscuity/bready tones. At the end of the nose, some earthy pine-like tones emerge from the hops. Taste is deliciously hoppy and bitter with the mellowing malt coming in midway to chill things out. Hops are mainly citrusy with grapefruit tones. I’m really digging the maltiness of this (caramel) which almost leans it towards an English Style IPA but the hops bring it back across the pond. Ends with the nice clean IPA bitterness I’ve come to expect. After a few sips there is some very strong lacing coming from the ring that has replaced the head. Mouthfeel is medium weight with a certain hop oil presence and a mild alcohol presence.
An excellent IPA that stands out from the crowd with its DIPA strength malt, definitely something I’d pick up again. Only downside I can find is that the hops are a bit one dimensional.
