Double Nickel Brewing Company "Brickface"
on tap at the brewery on 23 April 2016

Notes: Clear mahogany body beneath an off-white head. Excellent head retention and lacing! A beautiful glass of beer. The aroma expresses dark caramel and a combination of pine and mint. The flavor follows suit, anchored by a bold bitterness and a splash of alcohol. Dry, lingering, spicy and piney finish. I'm not sure what I'd call this, it's not really an IPA, I guess it's a strong ale... or both? Fortunately they've kept the balance right-on with enough malt to make it work. Nicely done!

On tap at the brewery 5/11/17. Pours cloudy red with a thick tan head. Tropical fruit aroma but not very prevalent. Taste is bitter and thick sticky. Some tropical fruit notes present. Feel is very good with good body and mouthfeel. Overall a decent red IIPA.
