Unique in it's blend of malts, sugars and hops. Definitely a strong ale but hard to categorize.

Smells surprisingly fruity when you open the bottle. Reminded me of a Hefe right off the bat. Pours a very dark orange color. Looks like a very thick cloudy brew with a thin off white head. The lacing is not very plentiful but does stay with you. Initial taste is very fruity but almost immediately becomes very bitter with a dry finish. If it would finish like it started as far as taste, I would absolutely love it. Unfortunately for that reason I think I'll have to pass on any future purchases of this brew. Guess I'm not meant to enjoy this type of beer, labeled as a Double Pale Ale.

Double Pale Ale with 8.0% alc. by vol. bottled on 05.20.15. Tasted on August 13, 2015 in a Teku glass from a 12 oz bottle. Look is hazy amber, two finger head that dissipates to a thin top and nice lingering lacing. Smell is caramel, toffee, bread and alcohol. Taste is caramel, biscuit, and sweet citrus. Feel is medium in body and a little bitter in finish.
