Had from a firkin @ Black Sparrow in Lafayette.

Wow. Not usually an IPA fan, and especially not usually doubles, but this one... yeah, wow.

As other reviewers have said - lots of very lush, fruity hops in this one. Good complexity, good balance, just a good beer all around.

Had from a firkin at The Black Sparrow in Lafayette, IN.

Appearance: medium cloudy amber

Scent: Bitter grain, pleasant - very earthy smelling

Taste: Bitter musky malt, goes from grainy to lemon citrus to a dry taste, to a medium grainy finish.

Excellent with steak frites... ;)

Had on tap...

A- Poured a amber color with a light coppery off tone. One and a half finger white head shows great retention. Lots of streaky and web style lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Caramel bready malts comes into play with a ton of earthy hops. Piney and light grassy hops in this one as well. There is a light citrus hop with clove like undertone as well.

T- There is a big citrus blast from the hops in the front end of this one. Some sweet caramel malts in the middle of the beer make this a little more balanced. Piney hops with a hint of spicey hops in the tail end of the beer. This gives the beer a ton of hop flavor which is amazing!

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Tons of hops destroy the palate and well as you guessed it long into the aftertaste. This beer is a hop forward beer which is expected. Clean flavors and most hop style can be tasted. Medium drying on the palate from the alcohol.

D- This beer was a wonderful surprise from a brewery who I am enjoying a lot. A nice hop bomb that I would gladly have a couple pints of. Figure 8 is going to be something big here in the next couple of years. This beer just goes to show that.

I had this brew at the Great Taste Of The Midwest in Madison....that being said this was one of my favorites of the day, the color was a nice amber/red. The taste and mouth feel were , at least to me very good, and I didn't notice the alcohol kick very much. Overall ,to me , at least a very desireable DIPA. I really enjoyed this one!

Another Indiana brew muled back by ChrisD....thanks brother!

A-Bright copper with a large off-white head that slowly reduced to a thin cap and left a fair amount of lacing.

S-Bright pop of hop fruitiness with notes of mango and papaya. Backing caramel malt sweetness and a flourish of floralness in the background.

T-A nicely balanced DIPA with sweet caramel malt evenly matched up with fruity overtones. Malt component doesn't become too rich and the hops never overwhelm, nicely done.

M-Medium bodied and almost creamy. Nice lingering hop fruitiness.

D-Solid, interesting and different but good. I liked this one. Well balanced and easy to drink. A nice effort with this brew.

A- somewhat clear amber color with a white quickly dissipating head.

S- caramel and grassy, spicy, hop aromas.

T- intense grassy flavors with a healthy malt backbone to support this unusual flavor profile.

Mf- medium bodied with a slightly sticky residual presence.

Pretty good beer overall.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer has a slightly hazy aged copper body with a thick creamy tan head and a gentle matrix of tiny bubbles working their way to the surface.

S- The fruity orange hops are juicy with a woody green hops finish.

T- The green cinnamon and sweet juicy orange flavor to the hops are full with a finish of pungent green hops and a soft dandelion bitterness hits the back of the throat after each sip.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a tight cleaning fizz in the finish.

O- The nice hop depth is overpowered by the larger bitterness and pungent finish that dominates and sticks in the back of the throat.

Sampled on 5-10-11

Pours a cloudy red/orange color, with almost no head. The thin white film on top gives way to a single ring of white lacing.

Smell is very sweet and sugary, with lots of watermelon hops. The sweetness is heavy, and builds as time goes on. A little one-dimensional, but not bad.

Taste is all strong bitterness, not much of the sweet smell is there to back it up. It mellows after awhile, leaving behind more earthy flavors and an enjoyable burnt sugar quality.

Mouthfeel is good, maybe a little too thin, but with a nice thickness to complement the hop flavors.

Drinkability is very good, the bitterness grows on you, and also helps to cover the alcohol.

Overall, a simple, but very tasty beer, and worth picking up.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Another good looking beer from Figure Eight - pours a clear copper with a magnificent head; excellent retention leaving a few strands of lace behind

Smell: Sugary caramel tones joined by piney hops

Taste: A lot of sugary caramel flavors, up front, but the hops don't give an inch and join with a blast of piney bitterness; after the swallow, the malt and hops reach a crescendo and are joined by a bit of boozy alcohol; both the sweet and bitter flavors linger into the finish

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with moderate carbonation and some warmth in the gullet

Overall: As I typically don't like really malty DIPAs, I wasn't expecting to like this very much but there was something about the hops they used that put me in the camp of the fans

Thanks, jonallen, for the opportunity
