This pours a hazy, amber color with a frothy head. The aroma is a little malty and yeasty. Decent flavor, nothing big or bold but lots of decent flavor.

Appearance - Fairly dark amber gold. Clear. Short off white head, not persistent.

Smell - Hoppy. Mainly a nice herbal aroma.

Taste - Heavy dose of grassy hops balanced with a nice rich molasses-y medium roasted malt. Clear alcohol warmth. Not quite what I was expecting, but rich and balanced - a good tasting, weighty beer.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full. Smooth.

Overall - I like it. Some might not agree with the designation of style.

Capsized pours a dark golden color with a small lacing head. There is a rich and hoppy aroma. The taste is on the maltier side, with a harsh floral hop flavor. Full bodied, good flavors, a bit harsh. Overall its an okay double IPA, a bit harsh, and more well balanced then others.

A - creamy ivory head tops a hazed rusty colored ale. The head holds good retention leaving some lacing on its way down
S - fruity aroma with bready malt and piny hops
T - bready malt with pungent bitter pine dominate the palate; caramel, spicy hops, and fruity esters are more in the background
M - very resiny mouth-feel, medium bodied and drying as the piny hops linger beyond the finish. Alcohol is nonexistent, especially when it's 9.2%! I actually had to double check to make sure it was 9.2% because it is so well concealed.
O - seems a bit muddled, but I do like the piny hops and the bready malt flavors in my IPA's so that's a plus for me. Not so sure I'd get it again, but I seem to have enjoyed it more than most.

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

Pale brassy hue, superb looking lacing. Fresh hop resin, semi-dank and herbal, tobacco, lemon grass and grapefruit pith make for quite a hoppy nose. Pungent, agressive hopping here. Bitterness is pretty intense but not a palate destroyer. Smooth and creamy, very chewy medium body. Dank, piney, mint, tobacco, peppery alcohol, underlying breadiness, noticeable alcohol, lemon zest, papaya , rose water, long bitter semi-dry finish.

The hoppiness is almost relentless on taking over my tastebuds but there is a smidgen of balance here.
