Poured from 12oz. bottle into tulip.

Overall a nice double IPA. I've had it before and remember it being mud more flavorful, full or citrus and pine notes. However this bottle has too much alcohol in the nose, only slightly dissipating in the taste. Tends to overwhelm everything else. Still worth trying, though, since this brewery makes really great brews.

Doing a taste test of this Chillwave Double Ipa vs. Victory DirtWolf Double Ipa.
date of 05/05/14 on the label using a Chimay goblet.

A- Pours a nice dark burnt orange-copper color with a nice off-white two finger lacing which settles nicely into swirls of white on the top.

S- Has a really nice peach/mango/pine smell that is incredibly inviting, can't wait for the taste.

T- Not overpowering but definately very palatible, mellow bite for a 9.4 percent ipa, pleasant but not the best out there. It is damn good but I might be leaning towards the other dipa I'm trying at the same time. This one may have a little age on it compared to the Victory Dipa I am trying though.

M- Again, not terribly bright feel, more of a slow, mellow taste with a great smell that washes over really smoothly, Great Lakes knows how to make a great beer!

O- A really outstanding Dipa, not the best I've had but right up there, probably top 10, there are just so many good ones now...and so little time!
