This one seems to have quality control issues at the brewery. Sometimes it tastes great, other times a bit off. It always is very syrupy. Tastes a lot like the high ABV beers that add sugar to get a higher alcohol content. A douple IPA that definitely has a punch but probably 350 calories is my guess.

Like concentrated piss in a can. Gives a good buzz though. If you are looking for a tasty double IPA try Sierra Nevada Hop Bullet. 100x better.

Pours a nice clear copper color. The head is off-white with excellent retention and moderate lacing. There is a good amount of visible carbonation.
The nose is mostly pine hops with some caramel malts to back it up. Simple but effective.
The taste balanced quite well. You get a nice piney hops kick to the throat buts its mellowed down with a malty sweetness that is just right.
Mouth feel is a bit heavy. Thick but with decent carbonation to lift it up.

I had this IPA at the Mad Dog in San Antonio. It wasn't my favorite DIPA but it was good.

Look: reddish brown with a thin off-white head

Aroma: sweet caramel, citrus and pine

Taste: Sweet caramel, grapefruity and piney bitterness, quite good but a bit on the sweet side.

Feel: medium body.
