On-tap 11/16/2012 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, citrus and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a nice strong hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp a very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very good IPA to drink for a long time. It’s easily the best beer I’ve had from Cape Ann.

Three time pour from the bartender for this one. Full ring lace after each sip. Dirty gold color with a touch of haze.

A combination of floral and grapefruit rind hop wafts to the nose on this one. Attractive.

More malty than I expected. Plenty of alcohol on the tongue, too--warming. High carbonation but with an elevated body as well. The bitterness does not overwhelm but is distinctively there. Modest aftertaste for this style.

Drank on-tap at Cambridge Common, Cambridge, MA
Served in a mini shaker

The beer poured a slightly hazed, medium amber and was topped by a small, foamy, light tan head. The crown quickly fell to a thin cap. A drippy blanket of lacing coated the top portion of the glass.

The aroma was quite hoppy and fruity. Tropical fruit notes dominated. Mango and papaya were most noticeable. Pineapple and passion fruit came through as well. Some peach and apricot notes. The fruity hops contributed a subtle sweetness. Hints of candied orange peel were also detectible. All in all, really solid. I only wish the nose could have been a bit more punchy.

The flavor profile was quite different from the aroma. It was much sweeter, with a substantial caramel malt presence and more intense citrus notes. Candied coated orange peel dominated. Lots of juicy peach and nectarine notes. Some brown sugar sweetness. Grapefruit pith and orange rind came through on the finish. Just slightly bitter. Overall, quite well balanced. At 9% ABV, the alcohol presence was incredibly well masked.

The mouthfeel was fuller bodied for the style. Rich, slick and creamy on the palate.

Fisherman's Dead Eye Double IPA might not be in the same echelons of some of the better Vermont DIPA's but it was quite impressive nevertheless. I look forward to seeing more beers like this being brewed in my home state.
