This Double IPA featured a sweet malty character with a surprisingly muted hop aroma. At first sip, the hop flavor (pine, resin) definitely made up for the aroma's lack of hoppiness -- this beer definitely had the necessary hop bittering to fit in the DIPA category. The 7 hops used to make this beer blended well together and lent some depth and complexity to the brew. Some Double IPAs can be somewhat harsh and have an aggressive hop bite, but this beer was very smooth from beginning to end; the malt to hop ratio was perfect. A nice sweet malty flavor balanced nicely with the hop bittering with a slight hint of sherry-like qualities. The alcohol was definitely there to warrant the DIPA moniker. The body and mouthfeel was perfect, as well the carbonation, and a slight alcohol burn in the aftertaste that was both smooth and clean. Recommended!
