Nice orange color, with thin white head. Smells malty and a little hoppy. Tastes grassy and malty, with a little bitter in the finish and some heat from the alcohol. Not a bad taste just not what I'd expect in a dbl IPA. Mouthfeel is smooth and bubbly with bitter bite.

Overall, it's worth a try, but don't expect the typical dbl IPA. I don't think I'b buy another one, but if someone offered me one I wouldn't turn it down.

A - Hazy copper pour with a two finger foamy white head.

S - Nose is sweet honey and malt, with dank hops, grapefruit, pine, and some booziness.

T - Lots of honey and candy sugar sweet malt up front, bitter finish. Odd aftertaste, with a sharp, puckering mix of borderline sugary malt and mild alcohol burn. Some citrus flavor as well.

M - Thick and slick body with ample carbonation.

O - WTF was this? I've never had a IIPA with so much sweetness up front and lacking hop flavor. Reminds me of a hoppy barley wine.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Wait, this is a DIPA from Capital? Alright. Let's do this. It pours a midnight copper-bronze topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises pine resin, light leek, and thick caramel. The taste brings in more of the same, with a sharper resin character, a weaker caramel backbone, and a malingering bitterness that just ends up dulling my tongue, Novocaine-style. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, it's a nice enough DIPA, I suppose, but it's just a blunt thwack of bitterness and lacks the usual balance and control Capital is known for.

Pours amber with a big frothy head.

Smells great, bready malty base with grapefruit, pine, and herbal hop notes.

Taste is a muddled mess for me though. Lacking complexity, one hoppy note of dank resiny pine, some grass and bread in there. No bite at the finish.

Medium carbonated mouthfeel, though ends up flat feeling, perhaps from the flavor profile.

I love me some Capital lagers, but this just missed the boat - or overturned it I guess. The hopping just didn't lend itself to any definition of flavor, it was just a wall of flat dank hops.

A: Darker shade of copper in color. Forms a moderate sized off-white colored head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is malt dominant. Caramel malts. Some pine hops and some concentrated citrus zest.

T: Taste is a blend of caramel malts, mildly sweet citrus, pine, and grapefruit. Mildly bready and earthy. But its mostly the caramel malt. And while I typically like these flavors, this beer is not overly appealing.

M: Medium bodied. A slight bit sweet on the front end. Somewhat dry bitterness on the back end. Appropriate carbonation.

O: Certainly a more East Coast style of DIPA with more malt than hops. A decent beer. Drinkable, but not something that I'd ever visit again.
