On-tap 12/19/2014 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a snifter pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with a strong citrus flavor and some caramel. Then a strong hops bitterness comes in followed by some booziness. The malt character is on the thin side and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are several better 2IPA’s that I would pick first.

A fingers worth of crisp fluffy whimsical light khaki colored head with a bit of an orange tinge to it... Decent retention... The color is a slightly muted amber... A moderate bit of uber sluggish carbonation... Gobs of lacing clings to the sides of the glass... The nose is bright and full of citrus to start... Orange zest... Mango... Pineapple... A second layer of subtle hops emerge and are a bit piney in nature... Little or no malt back bone... This one is rather one dimensional, but in this instance that isn't necessarily a bad thing... The big hop bit on the palate is no surprise, but it takes on a different dimension than expected... Much more piney and resiny than expected... Significantly less citrus than anticipated... Some light lemon zest notes... Medium bodied... Grows more assertive as it lingers... Sticky and a bit viscous... Limited carbonation... A more than respectable American Double IPA, but nothing overly remarkable... Decent enough, but not something I would opt for with regularity given the plethora of world class offering available...
