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.

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.

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.

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.
