A very pale yellow fills the glass, while the head remains minimal. The color could be more desirable as it does not lead one to believe it will have the smell or punch of taste that it has. The aroma is a strong robust tone of hops. Evidenced by the 3 different kinds used in the brew itself this much is obvious as you take the first sip. A pow right in the kisser kind of taste that really kind of punches its way through the tastebuds. Not highly carbonated or bubbly but dissipates easily. Taste is quite thorough throughout the bottle and pour over.
There are minor hints of oak and nutty tastes but moreover the malt was more like a bomb that had emploded on the beer itself. Nearly smothered to a point where at the bottom of the glass it was heavy and hard to come through.
Average mouthfeel was smooth, no major afterburn or “hop” ache as I like to call it. But not anything that was particularly special either.
As far as Double IPA’s go, the three kinds of hops Cascade, CTZ and Centennial create a fine beer but there is nothing is distinct in regards to the beer but it could be an easy middle of the night pick up.
