Notes / Commercial Description:
This Double IPA packs a big punch, and no, we’re not going to apologize for it.

No Apologies is our Double IPA. To ensure every batch is as good as the last, we selectively brew it in small batches from the finest European malts and five varieties of American hops. Its Earthy, dry hop aroma finishes with a caramel sweetness. If you don’t like it, that’s your problem - we're not gonna apologize.

A - Pours a hazy deep orange with a one-finger foamy white head. Heavy lacing.

S - Mix of malts, grassy hops, and a touch alcohol.

T - Sweet malts are right upfront with floral hops finish out the flavors. Finish has a slight hop bitterness. Light alcohol presence in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is a decent malt forward DIPA. Definetly drinkable.

Pours a barely translucent copper-bronze with decent layer of sustained head. Unfortunately, I don't get much in the nose, but it does seem a little malty (dark sweet).

The barely perceptible to me nose does come through in the taste. A butterscotch malt sweetness that does have some fig-like flavors, maybe some quite subdued cherry flavor. The feel is decently carbonated, but I agree with other reviews that this is lacking any real hops bite. It's not that bad a beer, average I'd say, but it doesn't quite hit DIPA style I like.
