Draft at Capone’s and Craft. Pours turbid dark straw toward brown with off-white clingy head. Nose is heavy resiny hops, caramel malt, vinous fruit. Tastes dense on the palate, complex, with big hops, a nice malt balance, and a lot of flavor hints popping around. Your eager mouth and tongue will welcome every drop of this libation.

On tap at Capones, pours hazy copper with medium white head, nice lacing patterns. Aromas are very nice citrus hops, rye, honey, and heavy pineapple fruit. Taste is more bitter hoppy, and sugary. Notes of wood, pine, and spicy hop. Very bitter palate but still a nice ipa. 3.6

Nate (3759) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2013
On tap at Mad Mex (North Hills). Great fresh hop aroma, sweet and grassy with apricot and pear. Some pine and herb notes, too. Hazy medium amber with thin white lacing head. Medium body with medium to heavy carbonation. Starts nice and sweet with apricot and pear notes. Light brown sugar and caramel, too. Sweet bitter finish with nice lasting bitter after that’s not too harsh.

I had this on top at this year’s Steel City Big Pour festival in Pittsburgh. This beer has a fantastic caramel, amber color with a nice thick head. The nose is sweet and sticky, with a very strong, punchy West Coast hop aroma. Flavors of honey, pineapple, and mango with a well-integrated caramely malt backbone help balance out this extremely well crafted double IPA - awesome
