A special DIPA from the STBC folks, and their only IPA brewed with a single hop (Mosaic) and a special pale malt. My can said 2XSMASH. Fair warning: first two sips might seem a tad underwhelming, but it definitely grows on you. Despite the dearth of hop variety, it's a very complex, rewarding beer. The hops land first, on both nose and palate, but the malt comes in nicely for the coup de grace. At 8.1 or 8.2 % ABV, it's hardly what even I would call sessionable and bears careful monitoring, but if you eat something with it--like Tex-Mex--you should be able to enjoy two or three without garnering a DUI. Of course, enjoying it at home obviates that worry. Unless your Tex-Mex cooking skills are substandard. But there's always takeout.

Just a good double IPA. Obvious hoppy bitterness but with a light finish. Nice strength.

Tasted from a 16 oz can bought in Central NY. Clear straw color; thick rocky head.inviting aroma is a mix of bready, sweet malt and citrusy hops. Flavors follow the aromas and are clean, fresh and tasty. Medium body; low to moderate carbonation. Massive hops bitterness is counterbalanced by a low malt sweetness that fades to a dry finish. This is a well-put-together, enjoyable DIPA that hits all the right notes.
