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 very pleasant earthy, herby, spicy hop nose over traces of biscuit and light grain.
Pours hazy amber under a 1" amber tinted white head.
Very rich, creamy caramel biscuit palate finished with a rich does of grassy hops well into the aftertaste.
Medium full body, medium carbonation. Alcohol is slightly warming but deceptive. Very well balanced and well rounded beer with no sharp edges.

At smell, I thought it was an american barleywine. Mouthfeel is caramel, sugar cane and a hint of hop. Very resinous. Very intense for a DIPA

Very nice pairing with pepperoni pizza in that it stands up to strength of flavor nicely without overwhelming. Would benefit from a heavier citrus rather than caramel notes, however.
