Not big on the technicalities of reviews, but this beer is delicious. Outstanding DIPA, could not taste the alcohol, look out! And to top it off you can buy a case of this directly for about $40!!! Not only is it one of the best DIPAs I've had, the price vaults it way up my list. If anywhere near State College you would do yourself a favor by stopping at Otto's.

Cheers!

Good example of the style. Only wish that my waitress adorned the label instead of the artwork Otto's chose.

On tap at Otto's Brewery in State College, PA - tulip glass.

L: Pours a deep golden color, semi-transluscent, and with a nice layer of creamy white head that laces the glass.

S: Hoppy resin, just like you'd expect from an Imperial IPA. Piney notes and citrus... also freshly baked bread. If you like hops then this beer smells delicious.

T/F: This is a beautifully balanced Imperial IPA, and the hoppy bitterness plays very well with the sweetness of the high alcohol and citrus notes content making this one dangerous beer with its 9.6% ABV. The beer is nicely carbonated and smooth, with no significant aftertaste.

O: Easily one of my favorite beers at Otto's and one of my go-to brews when I visit. This is a great example of a double IPA, and goes down way too easy for its high ABV. Strongly recommended.
