Poured a reddish brown body with one finger head and a bit of lace patches.
Aroma is citric hoppy with hints of grape and a little bit of fruit and caramel sweetness.
Smooth and light bodied for a DIPA, ABV well-hidden, retains oily, citric hops and touches of grape and caramel sweetness.
Fuller, bready, dry finish and overall not the best DIPA, a simplistic version if you will, but not as bad as some reviews on here led me to believe.

I have been turned off by DuClaw's somewhat "off" beers for some time now. Unfortunate, considering I live within walking distance. When this one was announced, I got a little excited since I love double IPAs. So I gave it a try.

True to form, DuClaw dissappoints again. The pour was okay. It was clear amber color with a decent head.

It smelled just like their Venom ale but with a little more alcohol on the nose. More of a skunked hoppiness. Not much in the way of floral or pine smell at all.

Again, this tasted just like Venom (not good) with more of an alcohol kick. I have to say that the beer was a little too warm for some reason. It is not supposed to be ice cold but this was way to warm. Anyway, the beer is a little short on the malty side and the hops just don't meld well for some reason. Maybe that is what they should change.

Mouthfeel is somewhat oily and smooth but thin. This should have more body and backbone.

Not very drinkable either. The 9% abv and sub par taste leave me wanting something else. I actually had one beer and left for the evening. Try again DuClaw.
