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

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.

Really enjoy some of Figure8's beers. They are getting better and better.
This one was too big for me. Poured ok, looked ok, smelled good.
Was ready for a double IPA and then I was walloped with this overpowering taste of hops and alcohol.
I had it a few months ago, so my review may not be as detailed as I'd like.
But overall, this one had too much alcohol taste and wasn't what I enjoy or hoped for.
I prefer the citrus, smoothly hopped IPA. 10% 12% it's all good. I just dont like having it overpower the taste.
I'll stick with figure 8, but will not return to this one anytime soon.

22 oz. bottle served in a tulip glass. Pours a hazy reddish-orange color with a small, foamy off-white head, fair lacing. Aroma is pale malts, bread, vinous fruits, peppery, pine and resiny. Flavor is dominated by various hop notes, pepper, citrus, resin, a little bit of bread flavor but doesn't even come close to putting this one in balance. Mouthfeel is medium, harshly astringent, bitterness lays on the tongue for a good while. Not a bad beer, but a little too harsh. There is a way to do 100 IBUs and not be this harsh.
