Many thanks, again, to brother BA mikesgroove for spotting me this gem... Consumed on 11/02/08...
On opening and dispensing into a snifter, this brew offers a clear, golden to orange hue with a respectable head that left a sticky lace throughout. Aromas are bold and in your face with spritey, juicy, tangy hops. The flavor followed suit with great balance with the hops and malt body playing in excellent concert with one another. The alcohol is very well hidden here. The finish is dry. The sweet malty backbone and hoppy bitterness leaving something of a twang on the palate.
Without a doubt one of the best double IPAs I have had to date. Very solid and undeniably drinkable.
