Decent American IPA. Visually looks great and very strong. There's plenty of hops there, but they feel weaker. The flavor is very subdued. I was expecting a kick in the teeth, instead this one went down easy. A good DIPA/AIPA for a hot summer's eve, but not world class.

I've been on a Double Imperial IPA kick over the last few months and I have to share that this DIIPA has become my latest go-to brew. "Sucks" is great. Hopslam's a no-brainer, too, but I'll take Rampage over Hercules or Ruination any day, and I appreciate that I don't have to wait-til-next-year to find it. This thing is loaded with citrus and pine with no off notes to this tasters palate. At $8 a bomber it's fairly priced, as well. Looking forward to finding it on tap someday.

Pours a two-finger cream head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Clear amber color. Medium-strong carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is grapefruit hops, flavor is grapefruit hops and hints of caramel. Lingering bitter finish. $8.75 for a 22oz bottle from Bert's Better Beers Hooksett, NH

From a 22 oz bottle ordered from Letspour.
Pours a yellow gold with 1/2 inch head.
Light aroma of a laundry room and melon rind.
Significant carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors are big on the hop end...slight grass, grapefruit, earth. There's a touch of oxidation from shipping, I'm guessing, but it's not major. Overall a flavorful hoppy malt monster with a great elephant label design.

Two fingers of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a nice lemon and grapefruit... just enough.
The taste has a solid moderate to high lemon bitterness that is backed up nicely by the malt profile. Not a touch of sweetness gets through though.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
Wow, a solid beer.

A - burnt orange, murky at pour but clears over time, thick white head, great lacing

S - floral, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, some pine and mint

T - sweet, citrus - more orange than grapefruit, some bitterness in the finish

M - hefty without getting syrupy

O - very pleasant and easy to drink, nice beer but it does not inspire me to buy more - for such a big alcoholic beer the taste is quite subdued
